The Ramones' place in rock & roll history was already assured by 1978 with their first three albums: Ramones, Leave Home, and Rocket To Russia, all made in the span of 18 months, between February 1976 and the fall of '77. When it was time to make records, Tommy said, "Our art was complete." The art was the combined product of four strangely aligned personalities — all living within shouting distance of each other in the conservative, middleclass enclave of Forest Hills, where their mutual needs as fledgling musicians and bored delinquents far outweighed the mess of differences and civil wars that could never quite bust them apart. Once a Ramone, always a Ramone.

Roy Lichtenstein is among a group of artists whose work became known as Pop art in the 1960s. Influenced by advertising, newspaper print, and comic strips, he manipulated the images in his paintings by using limited, flat colors, precise drawing, and a handmade imitation of a mechanized process known as Benday (printer’s) dots.
Following Lichtenstein’s style, mix text and images from magazine advertisements to create your own Pop art.
