Which drummer do you see as "the drummer from The Ramones"? I've only put Tommy, Marky and Richie up because Elvis isn't important

I see Tommy as the drummer because he played on the first, and in my opinion best, albums.

If you don't have something relevent to say, stop posting. (None the less, I agree with SumGreenNOFX182 and Wa-shout. I like punk, dance and new wave. I suppose I should be shot ).

Come on! All of their drummers are metronomes. They should have just used a loop, if they had those back then.

I see them all. I kinda see the Ramones as several different bands:

1) 1974 - 1978 (Tommy Ramone) - very poppy but at the same very punky, and very, very simple (songs like Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment, Beat On the Brat, Judy Is A Punk, etc.)
2) 1978 - 1983 (Marky Ramone) - slightly more punk and rock n' roll, but still sticks to most of the Ramones' basic musical ideas (songs like Chinese Rock, Wart Hog, Mama's Boy, etc.)
3) 1983 - 1987 (Richie Ramone) - starts to get into hard rock territory, more rockish guitar riffs (songs like Animal Boy, I Wanna Live, Bop 'Til You Drop)
4) 1987-1996 (Marky Ramone) - back to the Ramones basics, but kind of in a formulated, almost "reheated" way, although it might be a little more "punk" (songs like Scattergun, I Don't Want To Grow Up, Cretin Family, etc.)

I spent like 10 minits typing a thing just like this (almost, your a bit more atuned to all the dates than me) than looked and saw this and deleted my post.

Yea I agree with hardrock

Funny thing is, Green Day's biggest influence on their older stuff is The Ramones.

Incorrect. The album too tough to die is under Richie Territory (1984)

Marky's first spell as a Ramone was during the "sellout" era where they tried to break into the Mainstream. The Marky Ramone era is the least punk.

Because he was the longest running drummer in total, and is the most active today, I would consider Marky to be the quintessential Ramones' drummer, even though he was sacked for alcoholism halfway through subterranan jungle.

Damn. I knew it sounded more "Richie-esque".

I always think of it like this:

Tommy: Simple, fast, poppy, punk songs.
Marky: Melodic, slow, complex(ish) pop songs.
Richie: Fast, sloppy "wannabe" hardcore songs.
Marky: (2nd time) More like a Ramones tribute band. Taking the early formula and recharging it.

Marky was actually pretty damn good. Sure the other two were metronomes... but hey it was fun and everyone loved it!

Richie was much better than Marky and Tommy in my opinion. He was also the fastest but the most elusive.

Plus, of course, Richie wrote and sang songs, which in any band, is useful.
