Vintage Video: The Ramones Guest on the Old Grey Whistle Test

35 years tonight on January 15, 1980, the Ramones guested on the BBC's Old Grey Whistle Test.

Whistle Test was conceived in 1971 as an outlet for "serious" rock music as opposed to the network's Top of the Pops which presented the current hits of the day. It aired late night until 1983 when it was moved to a mid-evening slot where it remained until New Year's Day 1988.

Here, the Ramones perform Rock 'N' Roll High School and Do You Remember Rock 'N' Roll Radio?
