Blitzkrieg Bop

„Blitzkrieg Bop“ is number 92 on the Rolling Stone list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. „Blitzkrieg Bop“ is a song by the American punk rock band Ramones. It was released as the band’s debut single in April 1976 in the United States. It appeared as the opening track on the band’s debut album, Ramones, also released that month.

„Blitzkrieg Bop“ was named after the German World War II tactic blitzkrieg, which means „lightning war“. The song was mainly written by drummerTommy Ramone, while bassist Dee Dee Ramone came up with the title (the song was originally called „Animal Hop“). Dee Dee also changed one line: The original third verse had the line „shouting in the back now“, but Dee Dee changed it to „shoot ‚em in the back now“. The precise meaning and subject matter of the song are, unlike many of The Ramones‘ other early compositions, somewhat vague and obscure. (wiki )
