And, as one of the four eternal teen-agers known as the Ramones, singer Joey vows to keep on rockin' till the lights go out for good.

A federal judge in New York has tossed out a lawsuit by a former Ramones drummer who says he was cheated out of royalties. U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin said in a ruling that a contract Richard "Richie Ramone" Reinhardt signed when he performed with the Ramones between 1983 and 1987 clearly covered digital uses of his songs.

A drummer who spent four years in one of the greatest punk bands of all time, the Ramones, filed a federal lawsuit in New York on Friday contending he is owed nearly $1 million in royalties on songs sold over the Internet. Richard "Richie Ramone" Reinhardt, who performed with the Ramones from 1983 to 1987, sued Wal-Mart, Apple, RealNetworks, the band's management and the estate of its lead guitarist, saying he had never fully signed over the rights to the six songs he wrote for the group.

After 18 years and 16 albums, the Ramones--America's own pop cultural revolutionaries--are still waging a campaign against all the "cretins and pinheads" who make rock 'n' roll boring. The battle plan includes a new album--the just-released "Mondo Bizarro"--and a national tour that includes a date Monday at Santa Barbara's Anaconda followed by three shows starting Wednesday at the Hollywood Palladium and a concert next Saturday at the Starlight Bowl in San Diego.

When the Ramones began playing radically minimalist rock 'n' roll at supersonic speed in New York clubs and studios, they attracted just a few onlookers. More than 20 years later, the foursome from Forest Hills is acknowledged as the inventor of punk rock, a movement that shook the music industry to its foundations, determined the nature of today's alternative rock and defined much of youth culture's fashion and attitude.
