"Do You Remember Rock'n'roll Radio?" as written by and Jeffrey/cummings Hyman....
(This is Rock 'n' roll radio, come on, let's rock 'n' roll with the Ramones)

Rock'n, rock 'n' roll radio, let's go
Rock'n, rock 'n' roll radio, let's go
Rock'n, rock 'n' roll radio, let's go
Rock'n, rock 'n' roll radio, let's go

Do you remember Hullabaloo
Upbeat, Shindig and Ed Sullivan, too?
Do you remember rock 'n' roll radio?
Do you remember rock 'n' roll radio?

Do you remember Murray the K
Alan Freed, and High Energy?
It's the end, the end of the seventies
It's the end, the end of the century

Do you remember lying in bed
With the covers pulled up over your head
Radio playin' so no one can see?
We need change, and we need it fast
Before rock's just part of the past
'Cause lately, it all sounds the same to me
Whoah-whoah, oh

Rock'n, rock 'n' roll radio, let's go
Rock'n, rock 'n' roll radio, let's go
Rock'n, rock 'n' roll radio, let's go
Rock'n, rock 'n' roll radio, let's go

Will you remember Jerry Lee
John Lennon, T. Rex and old Moulty?
It's the end, the end of the seventies
It's the end, the end of the century

Do you remember lying in bed
With the covers pulled up over your head
Radio playin' so no one can see?
We need change, and we need it fast
Before Rock's just part of the past
'Cause lately, it all sounds the same to me
Whoah-whoah, oh

Rock'n, rock 'n' roll radio, let's go
Rock'n, rock 'n' roll radio, let's go
Rock'n, rock 'n' roll radio, let's go
Rock'n, rock 'n' roll radio, let's go

(This is rock 'N' roll radio, stay tuned for more rock 'n' roll)

    General Commentthis song is aboot how we took the 70's and all the fun time in that decade for granted and this song is a remembrance of how we should have appreciatted those years more even tho everyone was stoned or fucking or doing something stupid during those years. a decade of wasted youth and social rebellion with the rise in the porn industry and the majority ofsex drugs and rock and roll.

    General Commentthis song isn`t about how we took the 70's for granted, it's about how rock was dying out to disco by 1979, which is when this song was released. they are talking about famous bands that were the roots of rock and hoping they will be remembered. this song is great, definitly one of the best pop songs around.

    General CommentIt means "Do you remember when music was good, and kicked ass?"

    Another song I've really connected to in this past few years with this onslaught of bad bubblegum pop and wannabe punk bands.

    General CommentA lot of people define 'great' bands as the ones whose songs stay relevant. On that basis, the Ramones would be one of the greatest ever for writing a song that's more relevant now than it was at the time.
