Random Cover Song Thursday: Ramones cover Motorhead’s “R.A.M.O.N.E.S.”

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get.  We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs.  Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs.  Good or bad.  Intriguing or mundane.  We’ll let you be the judge.

This week it’s Ramones covering Motorhead’s “R.A.M.O.N.E.S.” You’d think it would be the other way around but the song first appeared on Motorhead’s album “1916”. The Ramones themselves performed a cover of it on and off until their final show in August 1996 at which C.J. Ramone and Lemmy shared lead vocals.

You can check out both the original and the cover right here.
