The Ramones like you've never seen them before.
July 2, 2008 9:36 PM   Subscribe

People have made some awesome animated videos for Ramones songs, and have uploaded them to Youtube for our viewing pleasure. I Don't Wanna Go To The Basement is probably my favorite. Commando comes in close second. Ramones as legos playing Spiderman wins on sheer novelty. The papercut animation in this video for Blitzkreig Bop is definitely worth a look. Finally, this snippet of the claymation Ramones playing Judy is a Punk is awesome, if painfully short.

See the rest here.

Oh man. This is fantastic.

The actual video for Spiderman is pretty great in and of itself

This was a nice way to start the day. Thanks.

Here's three colors: now go start an animation studio.

Woah... the good folks who do the lego videos have a fucking awesome Lego Bohemian Rhapsody.

Oh shit... Thriller, legos, shot-for-shot. A bit blurry, but they even got Michael's little pantomimes and red jacket. Damn.

Stick figure Michael Jackson (warning, contains stick figure violence), but stick figure Chumabwumba has to be my new fav.

Great post, thanks!

I'm sorry about contributing to the massive derail from your wealth of excellent Ramones vids Afroblanco, but in light of the replies so far I couldn't resist posting this one.

Yeah, sorry for derailing the Ramones-a-thon. I'm going to have Blitzkrieg Bop in my head all day now.

These are great - the perfect band to be animated. El mucho thanks.

Judy Is A Punk isn't exactly epic length, ya know? We're not exactly talking In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida here.

Hope everyone is using YT sockpuppet accounts and IP address anonymisers :)


Impressive efforts - although of course I haven't watched them, 'onest...
