The list to end all Ramones lists....

The Story

I compiled the first version of this list in August 2011, a few hours after I'd heard two songs on my iPod that both mentioned the Ramones, the kind of coincidence that can spark curiosity. I think this original list had something like a dozen songs on it that I could think of straight away. But it grew rather quickly. Only a few months later, in January 2012, I had 100 songs and Sabotage Times published the list for the first time.

However, I wasn't quite happy with the fact that some bands appeared more than once (see "The Rules") and so I did some digging that resulted in a much-improved version of the list - 111 songs by 111 different groups or singers. Thanks to Sabotage Times, it went online in August 2013.

But the road goes on forever, as they say, and the party never ends. So here is an updated version with plenty more songs that mention the Ramones - or one of them.

The Rules

Only one song per band or singer can make the list, mainly because there are groups — such as the Welsh trio Helen Love, The Huntingtons from Baltimore or the Brazilian punk rockers Carbona — who name drop the Ramones almost compulsively in their songs.

I have excluded songs about the Ramones which don't actually mention the Ramones (such as "The Bowery Electric" by Jed Davis or "I Heard Ramona Sing" by Frank Black). The same goes for songs that reference the Ramones in their title but not in the actual lyrics (such as "Kung Fu Ramone" by the Japanese band Guitar Wolf or "Simpatia Por Los Ramones" by Anti-Sociales, a group from Puerto Rico).

An exception to this rule could be "Xerox Your Genitals, Not The Ramones" by The Erg! It's near-impossible to decipher the lyrics to the 35-second song, so I'm giving this now-defunct band from New Jersey the benefit of the doubt.

Finally, and as it should go without saying, these are all different songs, even if some carry similar or even exactly the same titles!
