It's been four decades since seminal New York outfit the Ramones' released their self-titled debut and unleashed their fast, funny, back-to-basics brand of punk rock upon the world. To celebrate, the Queens Museum is partnering with the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles for a bicoastal retrospective, "Hey! Ho! Let's Go: Ramones and the Birth of Punk."

The east coast installment, opening April 10, will highlight the Ramones' influence on both music and art, featuring rare paraphernalia from the band's Queens roots, including early press packages, concert footage and fliers, alongside works from artists including Matt Groening and Shepard Fairey. Several of Dee Dee Ramones' paintings will also be on view, as well as the band's original lyric manuscripts, guitars and, of course, no Ramones retrospective would be complete without leather jackets.
