Too Tough To Die: A Tribute To Johnny Ramone is a music video and documentary that celebrates 30 years of Ramones' punk rock music and remembers another original band member, who passed away to cancer. The music industry gathers in Avalon, Hollywood, to salute Johnny Ramone, who unfortunately fell ill in pre-production and lost his battle with prostate cancer. With Johnny watching from his bedside, The Dickies, X, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Daniel Rey, C.J. Ramone, Marky Ramone and some other surprise guests perform the Ramones' most famous hits live on stage. The Dickies start the night with "Today Your Love" and "Tomorrow the World." Red Hot takes the stage next with Anthony Kiedis yelling, "I Wanna Be Sedated," and the Flea pounding his base to, "She's the One." The video then cuts to scenes from Johnny Ramone's funeral, and as the dimming lights come back on, the last living band members, C.J. and Marky Ramone, take the stage. They start with the Ramones' classic "Durango 95," and later, Eddie Vender from Pearl Jam helps them sing "Sheen is a Punk Rocker." Sex Pistol, Steve Jones, and Henry Rollins join the duo to finish the night to a standing ovation performance of "Blitzkrieg Bop." The concert marks an end of an era for a band, who most in the world consider to be the creators of punk rock music.moreless
