About R.A.M.O.N.E.S.

"R. A. M. O. N. E. S." is a song first recorded by the British rock band Motörhead on their 1991 album 1916 as a tribute to their friends and contemporaries, the Ramones. The bands were long-standing admirers of each other's work. Critic Andy Boot, reviewing the album in Kerrang (27 February 1991) described the song as "the icing on a very fine, if somewhat heavy, cake." Joey Ramone said of the track: "It was the ultimate honor - like John Lennon writing a song for you". The track was first aired before Phil Taylor and Würzel left the band and continued as a live staple until the end of Motörhead. It also appears as a bonus track on the album Fang Bang by Wednesday 13. The Ramones also performed it on and off until their final show in August 1996 at which C. J. Ramone and Lemmy shared lead vocals. Two different studio versions were recorded. One appears as a bonus track on their album ¡Adios Amigos! with C. J. Ramone singing lead vocals and the other one on the Greatest Hits Live with Joey Ramone singing lead vocals.

One, tow, three, four
New York City, N.Y.C.
Pretty mean when it wants to be
Black leather, knee-hole pants
Can't play no high school dance
Fuzz tone, hear 'em go
Hear 'em on the radio

Misfits, twilight zone
R-A-M-O-N-E-S, R-A-M-O-N-E-S
RAMONES
Bad boy rock, bad boy roll
Gabba gabba, see them go
C Jay now hit the gas
Hear Marky kick some ass
Go Johnny, go, go, go Tommy o-way-o

Misfits, twilight zone,
R-A-M-O-N-E-S, R-A-M-O-N-E-S

Bad boy then, bad boy now
Good buddies, mau mau mau
Sing it loud, rock 'n' roll
Good music save your soul
Dee Dee, he left home
Joey call me on the phone

Misfits, twilight zone,
