2006: CBGB, the legendary New York punk club credited with discovering Patti Smith and The Ramones, closes in the early morning hours after a final gig by Smith herself. Blondie and Talking Heads also found fame after performing at the club, which helped launch American punk music. The full name of the venue, which first opened in December 1973, is CBGB OMFUG, standing for "country, bluegrass, blues and other music for uplifting gormandizers."
