Leather-jacketed misfits


Being inspired by the pseudonym Paul _____ used by Paul McCartney, X decided that each one of them would adopt a pseudonym with the surname X, though none of them were actually related. Before their debut at CBGB, the CBGB owner Hilly Kristal's initial response to X was : "Nobody's gonna like you guys, but I'll book you anyway." X went on to play 74 times by the end of the year at the same club. Later on, X were also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Identify X.


Ans: X - The Ramones
