1. Only one song per band or singer can make the list. (There are bands which have half a dozen songs about the Ramones and I wouldn't want to bore you.)

2a. The songs do really have to mention or namecheck the Ramones or an individual Ramone. That's why popular suggestions such as "I Heard Ramona Sing" by Frank Black didn't make the list.

2b. Rule #2a also explains why there are no instrumentals in the list. This arbitrary bylaw bars songs like "Kung Fu Ramone" by the Japanese band Guitar Wolf. Or "Ramones" by 109 Groovy, which lasts for more than seven minutes without mentioning the Ramones or, for that matter, anything at all.

3. No cover versions can make the list. If you doubt that "Johnny Ramone" by Der Nino aus Wien has nothing whatsoever in common with "Johnny Ramone" by Some Cat From Japan and "Johnny Ramone" by Santiago Delgado Y Los Runaway Lovers, check out the songs on YouTube. (By the way, someone from Greece updates a YouTube playlist called "Songs Mentioning Ramones" whenever I update this list. Normally he only finds about half of the songs, but it's a good place to start if you want to check out some of the things below.)

Which leads me to a brief history of this list. As I said, this is the fourth edition. The three previous ones were also published by Sabotage Times, in 2012, in 2013 and then back in February. The first list had 100 songs, the second 111 (under the new, more rigorous rules), the third 150. Well, and that's pretty much all you have to know. Let's go.
