The Ramones: Hey! Ho! Let's Go! — The Ramones Anthology

Andy Gill, Jaan Uhelszki, MOJO, August 1999

I DON'T KNOW if they ever made a Ramones pin-ball machine, but if not, they missed a trick. Just imagine: the ritual chant of "Hey!Ho! Let's Go!" that heralds a new game; the spring-loaded baseball bat (and waiting brat); the Hopping Cretin; the Carbona or Glue option; the "Gabba Gabba Hey!" that greets the inevitable defeat. Dumb, wise-ass, bad-taste, physical, hands-on fun, with a generous tilt sensor so you can really give the bastard some stick.
