** The music video of "Pet Sematary" features the band at a cemetery, performing to which a ''tombstone'' is put ontop of them as they're technically buried alive. This is ''worse'' now that all Joey, Johnny, and Dee Dee Ramone are gone.

* TearJerker: "Here Today, Gone Tomorrow," or as Joey put it on ''It's Alive'', "We got a little tear jerker, for all you lonely hearts out there."
** Joey's cover of "What a Wonderful World".
** Joey's resigned-sounding vocals and the less-than-triumphant guitar solo of "I Don't Want to Grow Up".
** Joey's acoustic rendition of "Life's A Gas" on his posthumous solo record, ''Ya Know?''
*** Not to mention his slowed-down version of "Merry Christmas (I Don't Want to Fight Tonight)" on the same album. He just sounds like he's about to start weeping.
** "Questioningly," about a guy running into an old flame, rejecting her, and later realizing how empty his life is. The solo just clinches it.
** The last song on their last album, "Born to Die in Berlin". The title already establishes its downer credentials, but then the song comes out with the morbidly pessimistic lyrics, an oppressive, stifling atmosphere driven by possibly the heaviest riff the band ever wrote, and [[BackForTheFinale Dee Dee's last appearance with the band, singing a verse in German through a phone]].

* BaseBreaker: ''Music/EndOfTheCentury,'' produced by no less than Phil Spector and presenting a somewhat LighterAndSofter Ramones.
** Their latter-day albums with CJ Ramone. It's more accurate to say that CJ himself seems a bit of a BaseBreaker.
* CoveredUp: "I Don't Want to Grow Up" was by Music/TomWaits from ''Music/BoneMachine'' (it helps they've written many songs that are either "I Wanna X" or "I Don't Want X").
