Hey ho, let's go! Hey ho, let's go!
Hey ho, let's go! Hey ho, let's go!

They're forming in straight line
They're going through a tight wind
The kids are losing their minds
The Blitzkrieg Bop

They're piling in the back seat
They're generating steam heat
Pulsating to the back beat
The Blitzkrieg Bop

Hey ho, let's go
Shoot'em in the back now
What they want, I don't know
They're all revved up and ready to go

They're forming in straight line
They're going through a tight wind
The kids are losing their minds
The Blitzkrieg Bop

They're piling in the back seat
They're generating steam heat
Pulsating to the back beat
The Blitzkrieg Bop

Hey ho, let's go
Shoot'em in the back now
What they want, I don't know
They're all revved up and ready to go

They're forming in straight line
They're going through a tight wind
The kids are losing their minds
The Blitzkrieg Bop

They're piling in the back seat
They're generating steam heat
Pulsating to the back beat
The Blitzkrieg Bop

Hey ho, let's go! Hey ho, let's go!
Hey ho, let's go! Hey ho, let's go!

    General Comment:OK, I'll show my age here since none of you grew up back then....
    Blitzkrieg is a word used for WWII Germany's Lightning War, and Bop was a dance..... but common!
    "They're generating steam heat
    Pulsating to the back beat "
    This song is about teenage sex in the back of a car!
    Bop was a word for sex back then!
    Look up Cyndi Lauper's song SHE BOP. It's about masturbation and rarely played because of it.
    (times have changed, now you can describe sex graphically and nobody cares...)
    Joey Ramone was Jewish (and related to Howard Stern), so I'm sure he's not singing a pro-Nazi song!
    Punk music is usually about sex, rebellion and having a good time!

    General Comment:everyone who says this is about Germans is wrong. I saw a video about the Ramones, and Joey said the song was inspired by them being "into bubblegum pop at the time, and they wanted to have their own chant." Also, he said that DeeDee changed the line "shouting in the back now" to "'Shoot'em In the back now,' which is kind of a nonsequitur if you think about it" so, it really had nothing to do with killing

    I might have said the wrong Ramone, but i know that Joey said the first one

    I agree with all the people who said it was about the concerts

    General Comment:Does anyone else think their talking about like..a rally?
    "kids" piling in a car driving to a site with picket signs n stuff and the cops getting there "forming in a straight line" and shooting em up??
    just a thought..and it seems like a rebellious song...

    yay or nay kidz?

    General Comment:Blitzkrieg, as many have said, has to do with the war. A giant group of soldiers, planes, infantry, armies rolling in a straight line, shooting others in backs, creating gunpowder steam. BOP is also another way of saying Breach of Peace- put it together and I find it interesting! The blitzkrieg is used just for that- breach of peace in war! Of course, you could then say this song is simply about teens and sex or mindless millions of teens, dancing, pulsating, etc, etc...
