The Top Ten

1 Blitzkrieg Bop

Four words:Hey Ho, Let's Go - MetalGod

If this song is not the best Ramones song than you're simply kidding yourself.. It's a punk Anthem.. Known by every punk rocker. Hey ho lets go...

It rocks. Defining moment in rock history. Magical performance. Easily one of the best rock songs ever

3 My Brain is Hanging Upside Down

The first Ramones song that I have heard that isn't just an icon that is over played and can barely be called a song any more. beautiful

First heard this in School of Rock. After I became obsessed with this song. Best song in my opinion.

Unbeatable song! Lifts up the mood... Awesome music...
One of the best alternative songs

I don't care what anyone says, this is a better song than Blitzkrieg Bop. Maybe not as iconic but just as catchy and much more substance.

4 Pet Sematary

Really cool songs and catchy lyrics. Listening to this song since months now.

Definitely my personal No1 Ramones song out of all. No2 I choose "I Just Want To Have Something To Do"

A sad song by The Romones. I love it. 2nd favorite is "Sheena is a Punk Rocker".

Eternal... Like the band

Best Ramones song, excellent solo and also love the lyrics

A classic rock song by Dee Dee

9 Rock 'N' Roll High School

Great beat and catchy lyrics, exhilarating!

The song that got me into The Ramones, such a classic!

I love this song so much!

Makes me wanna dance auww

10 Poison Heart

"I just wanna walk, right out of this world, 'cause everybody has a poison heart". These lyrics are quite meaningful to anyone that has had struggles through life. Whether it comes to bullies, not being understood by people, or just getting treated like garbage by everyone that comes into their life.

Love this song! Very meaningful

Good one

The Contenders

11 Beat on the Brat

19 Do You Remember Rock 'N' Roll Radio?

Great lyrics, great melody, great drum intro, great recorded (as one of the few in the End Of The Century) and very true song even today

How is this not in the top ten it's genius. A true signature Ramones song.
