Punk definitely isn’t dead. The Ramones? Yeah, that’s a cushion. Yeah, it’s in Primark.

The latest adventure into punk rock’s gradual absorption into the high street is Primark’s very tasteful the Ramones themed cushion.

What was one the ultimate wall of sound rock n roll minimalism is now a cushion in Primark.

Now you can get a cushion to match that T shirt of the band you have never heard of…!

I’m sure the band would have been very happy with this mainstream acceptance. We just think it’s funny…

  1. John, it’s actually kinda funny, that one (the cushion). What does irk me is the trendies with ramones t-shirts, however. There should be a rule that you can only wear the t-shirt if you own at least one album. I’ll be generous and even extend that to a “best of”.
    The whole culture of punk rock seems to be being gradually assimilated into popular culture; Doc Martens, creepers (or “flatforms” as the young ‘uns call ’em), dyed,spiky hair, studded jackets, leather strides. Maybe it’s a good thing, I dunno.

  2. Are The Ramones getting royalties on all this stuff or is it a rip-off? Chi-chi baby shop in Didsbury selling baby Ramones, Clash and Stone Roses T-shirts. Apparently they can barely keep the Roses ones in stock!
