Jeffrey Hyman 
      American rock singer (b. May 19, 1951, New York, N.Y.—d. April 15, 2001, New York), was the lead singer for the influential punk rock band the Ramones. Founded in 1974, the Ramones created a new style of vigorous, thrashing music that became the foundation of punk rock; the first of the band's 21 albums, Ramones, appeared in 1976. A tall, gangly man with limited singing ability, Ramone was an unlikely rock star. Nevertheless, his feverish live performances helped the band develop a loyal following, and he was credited with sparking a fashion trend by always wearing torn jeans, black leather, and tinted sunglasses. The band's tour of England in 1976 proved a major inspiration for the punk movement in Great Britain, where the Ramones enjoyed greater commercial success than at home. With a shifting lineup, the group continued to record and perform into the 1990s before disbanding in 1996.
