"Cretin Hop" as written by and Thomas/cummings Erdelyi....
There's no stoppin' the cretins from hoppin'
You gotta keep it beatin' for all the hoppin' cretins

Cretin, cretin
I'm gonna go for a whirl with my cretin girl
My feet won't stop doin' the Cretin Hop
Cretin, cretin

One-two-three-four, cretins want to hop some more
Four-five-six-seven, all good cretins go to heaven

There's no stoppin' the cretins from hoppin'
You gotta keep it beatin' for all the hoppin' cretins

Cretin, cretin
I'm gonna go for a whirl with my cretin girl
My feet won't stop doin' the Cretin Hop
Cretin, cretin

One-two-three-four, cretins want to hop some more
Four-five-six-seven, all good cretins go to heaven

    General Commentcretin

    n : a person of subnormal intelligence [syn: idiot, imbecile, moron, changeling, half-wit, retard]

    maybe hes trying to play with the way that the older generation thinks of punks as lesser intelligence?

    General CommentI think he says cretin not because of adults' views on punks, but because they don't care about 'mature' or 'intellectual' stuff, they just care about the music.

    General CommentI think its about them paying some sort of tribute to the fans... 1234 CRETINS WANNA HOP SOME MORE!
    Perhaps they were trying to get something goin like the ICP, they call their fans Juggalos. Maybe the Ramones decided they wanted to call us cretins for a while

    General CommentThis is one of the Ramones' best songs, probably my favorite... Ultimate punk rock anthem.

    General CommentLike brainwashedbyusa said, this song was used in SLC Punk. I believe during the part where the rednecks break up the punk party, but I'm not 100%. I haven't seen that movie in quite awhile.

    General CommentI take that back, its the part where the punk show is broken up by the cops. Van Halen - Hot for Teacher is played during the redneck/punk fight.
