what would what would joey do about the state of rock n' roll
what would what would joey do if he could would he sing this song oh oh

it's almost the end of the century
but i'm sure this ain't the way he thought it'd be
if we put his name on a bracelet
if we put his name in lights
joey would he come and save us tonight

latley oh man it's been such a drag
dinosaurs still try to wave the flag
if we came up with a slogan
showed it to everyone in sight
joey would he come and save us tonight

    General CommentI've never heard the song, but they're obviously talking about how punk currently sucks, and how Joey Ramone would save it. It makes little sense though, since he didn't do jack shit to kill the shit-punk bands while he was alive, but let the Huntingtons have their fun.

    General CommentJoey Ramone was a fucking God. Did I ever deny that?

    I just pointed out that punk was going downhill long before he died, but he didn't do shit to save it. And no, a Ramones Farewell tour doesn't count.

    General Commentthis is very tongue in cheek stuff here. more a play on the whole wwjd what would jesus do? thing that was popular years ago. one thing i can tell you he wouldn't do is put it on a t shirt or bumper sticker and make money from it. just picked joey cuz it was funny. and it was more about rock and roll then punk. cuz when the ramones started must the bands where on the mellow side lets say. like fleetwood mac, the eagles, leo sayers, america the list goes on.
