Funny: The Ramones
  • At 2:22 of "We're a Happy Family Joey Ramone, in the act and tone of a deadbeat dad, declares with his New York-an accent: "Hey, were are my socks?..... Ahnd wear is mah ' undarhwearrr? "
    • Heck, you could count that entire sound as a Crowning Moment Of Funny for being ever-so darkly humorous. Just read the verse:
    Sitting here in Queens
    Eating refried beans
    We're in all the magazines
    Gulpin' down Thorazines

    We ain't got no friends
    Our troubles never end
  • Their appearance on The Simpsons. Despite only appearing for 30 seconds to sing Happy Birthday to Mr. Burns, they were the best thing in that episode.
    Mr. Burns: Smithers, have The Rolling Stones killed.
    Mr. Smithers: But, sir—
    Mr. Burns: Do as I say!
  • Dee Dee's rap album, Standing In The Spotlight, is hard to find - and for good reason - but it's a great piece of Narm thanks to Dee Dee's weak attempts at rapping. Even funnier was his speech in the End Of The Century documentary elaborating on why the album failed.
    • However, the song "The Crusher," about wanting to be a professional wrestler, was good enough to be revisited, with altered lyrics, on the Ramones' last album, Adios Amigos, and was performed at their final concert, which was documented on We're Outta Here!.
