The Ramones are *still* using the same three chords they 
were in the '70s. Pistols - the only non-musician was Sid
(drummers don't count, since they're not musicians...), and often 
when they played live Sid's bass wasn't plugged into an amp because 
he was so bad. As for the Stranglers, they were pub rock, not really punk.
