Punk icons THE Ramones staged booze and drug-fuelled Trivial Pursuit battles at the height of their career.
Late frontman Joey Ramone's brother Mickey Leigh reveals the bandmates were hooked on the quiz game when it first came out - and game night was an intense experience.
Leigh, who recalls his upbringing with his brother in new book I Slept With Joey Ramone: A Family Memoir, says, "We got as hooked on the game as we had on the drinks and drugs. The more blow we did, the more intensely we played the game. We loved it.
"Joey, being the most competitive of the bunch, loved to win. With the coke fuelling his obsessive competitiveness, he would demand a rematch if he didn’t."
