"Do You Remember Rock 'N' Roll Radio"
Though this was produced by Phil Spector(!) in the post-Tommy era, it's perhaps one of the most fitting on the occasion of his passing. "Radio playin' so no one can see / We need change, we need it fast / Before rock's just part of the past / 'Cause lately it all sounds the same to me."
"Sheena Is a Punk Rocker"
Produced by Tommy in 1977, "Sheena" is one of the band's most iconic songs, showcasing The Ramones' experiments with the surf rock style.
As the song that gave birth to the chant "Hey, ho, let's go!" this one is pure, classic Ramones.
"Judy Is a Punk"
Immortalized for a younger generation in Wes Anderson's The Royal Tenenbaums, "Judy" also has the distinction of being The Ramones' shortest song.
"I Wanna Be Sedated"
Even people who don't even know the name of the band know how this one goes: "Twenty twenty twenty four hours to go..."
Long before NYC hipsters reclaimed Rockaway Beach as their go-to summer destination, The Ramones were there rocking out in black sunglasses and ripped jeans.
"Rock 'N' Roll High School"
This song shares its name with the title of the 1979 Roger Corman comedy featuring The Ramones and a cast of young miscreants.
Got youthful angst? This is the song for you. Just beware of the DDT.
"The KKK Took My Baby Away"
This is perhaps The Ramones' best-titled song — outside of "Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue" — supposedly written about Joey's relationship with a black woman.
"Beat On the Brat"
This is old-school Ramones, with Tommy on drums. (Originally, but not in this video.) It's allegedly based on a true story, when Joey saw a mother chasing her child with a baseball bat.
