About Do You Remember Rock 'N' Roll Radio?

"Do You Remember Rock 'n' Roll Radio?" is the second single and first track from the American punk rock band Ramones' fifth studio album End of the Century. It was released on May 16, 1980. Produced by veteran record producer Phil Spector, the song and album marked a change in the Ramones' sound, in an increased attempt to achieve commercial success. Based on many of the 1950s pop songs the band grew up listening to, the song featured more complex instrumentation and production than past songs by the band, employing the use of a piano, trumpet, horn, saxophone, and synthesizer, along with the standard guitar, drums and bass. The album's title End of the Century came from a couplet found in the lyrics of the song: "It's the end, the end of the seventies/It's the end, the end of the century." This verse also provided the title of the 2003 documentary about the group, End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones. The opening riff of the song appears in the 2007 DreamWorks animated film Shrek The Third, the third movie in the Shrek franchise. The song also appears in trailers for the film, as well as the film’s soundtrack.
