"RAMONES" as written by Michael Burston, Philip Campbell, Ian Kilmister and Philip John Taylor....
One, tow, three, four
New York City, N.Y.C.
Pretty mean when it wants to be
Black leather, knee-hole pants
Can't play no high school dance
Fuzz tone, hear 'em go
Hear 'em on the radio

Misfits, twilight zone
R-A-M-O-N-E-S, R-A-M-O-N-E-S
Bad boy rock, bad boy roll
Gabba gabba, see them go
C Jay now hit the gas
Hear Marky kick some ass
Go Johnny, go, go, go Tommy o-way-o

Misfits, twilight zone,
R-A-M-O-N-E-S, R-A-M-O-N-E-S
Bad boy then, bad boy now
Good buddies, mau mau mau
Sing it loud, rock 'n' roll
Good music save your soul
Dee Dee, he left home
Joey call me on the phone

Misfits, twilight zone,
R-A-M-O-N-E-S, R-A-M-O-N-E-S

    General CommentLemmy says he loves punk and played this with the ramones. He said he indentifies more with punk fans than metal ones and Motorhead have covered God Save the Queen by the SPs. So I think its highly likely that this is a tribute.

    General CommentI think FRYEGUY is correct in his interpretation.
    If you read carefully, you can see that the lyrics contain an anagram of "I would be gay for Alice in Chains, even the dead one".

    General CommentGreat song! Love the raw energy in it and the pounding beat. And ofcoruse: It's a perfect sum-up of the Ramones.

    But what does he mean with the "Misfits, twilight zone" part in the ref? I first thought it was a tribute to the Misfits and some band named Twilight Zone, but as far as I'm conserned, there isn't/wasn't any punkband called that

    Johnny, Joey, Dee Dee. The Ramones band members!
