    The Ramones

    When: August 6, 1996
    Where: Palace, Hollywood

    Unlike the majority of the bands on his list, The Ramones actually chose when and where their last concert would be, and were able to put on a special show to mark the occasion. After appearing at the sixth Lollapalooza festival in 1995, The Ramones announced that their final show would be at the Palace in Hollywood, and it was a star-studded event, most of which you can watch below, that featured Lemmy from Motörhead, Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Soundgarden's Chris Cornell, and Dee Dee Ramone rejoining the band. Little more than 8 years after they split the band's three founding members would be dead, but their impact on pop and rock is lasting.
