    No lie: when my son was really small (like two years old) whenever we'd go out somewhere I'd say "Hey ho" and he'd reply "Let's go."

    A mark of good songwriting is that it translates well...

    These guys are fun to listen to.

    That said, my daughter does a dynamite version of this one:

    1, 2, 3, 4.....

    Latley, I have realized the yeoman's work CJ Ramone put in while he was in the band. He could write songs that worked as Ramones songs. Here is his tribute to his departed bandmates

    I was lucky enough to do a few opening slots for the Ramones in the SF Bay Area in April 1980. It was fun and fascinating. They were not especially friendly or interested in local guys like us. I guess you can't blame them... and backstage they didn't seem to be having much fun together. But oh boy - let me tell you - when they started playing, they were magnificent!

    I loved the sound checks. They were all very quick, no surprises. But Joey would spend 15 or 20 minutes repeating this sequence: standing in front of his floor monitors, he would grab the mike stand. While putting his right foot up on the wedge, he would lean way forward with that mike stand in his hands and say "Check! Tssssss!", then return to his original standing position. Over and over and over.

    Great group, great music. I surprised my wife just now - put the headphones on her while she was doing a crossword puzzle and said "listen to this!" and played the video at the beginning of this post. She was smiling and bopping around in no time...

    Great stuff! It seems all Ramones songs clock in at exactly 2 minutes...:D

    "Have the Rolling Stones killed."

    "But sir, those aren't--"

    "Do as I say!"

    No lie too: when my son was 3 or 4 yo, Ramones songs were among his favorite lullabies... and Nirvana as well...

    Just the thread title was enough to bring a smile.

    What was your band. I saw the the Ramones maybe late 70s or early 80s at the Warfield. I think No Sisters was on the bill as well.

    For those that haven’t had the pleasure. This show is awesome! It’s right there with It’s Alive for me.

    Quite simply, no one does it better. To quote another rock legend, Lemmy on the Ramones, “everything you need to know about rock and roll is right there”.

    My group was called Sudden Fun. I remember No Sisters, we saw them around all the time.

    For anyone that says the Ramones were just a three chord garage band tell them to try keeping up, they lost me after about a minute, I put my Tele away. Did they ever make a mistake?

    BTW, most of the audience sucked. Where did they think they were? A wake?
