The Ramainz were a U.S. tribute band to the Ramones. Its members included Dee Dee Ramone, Marky Ramone, Dee Dee's wife Barbara Zampini (also known as Barbara Ramone) and C. J. Ramone. They were known as The Remains until 1999 but had to change the spelling due to another band already using the name. They released one live album entitled Live in N.Y.C. on 8 October 2002, four months after Dee Dee Ramone's death on 5 June.
