I think the list of bands who we would never have seen without the Ramones would be extensive.

Tommy's part in that was by no means small either.

The only Ramones I like is Osaka Ramones, the Shonen Knife cover album.

I'd say it was Killing Joke that was one of the biggest Nirvana influences. Everybody remembers that riff they nicked. :D

Could be...I think the conventional wisdom is to look to the artists that were influential when those guys were in their formative years.
Of course, sometimes the influence is fairly obvious:

Apologies to the OP for the slight highjacking of the thread. :wink:
