Here’s an all-star punk cover of The Ramones’ “Bonzo Goes to Bitburg”

The Ramones weren’t a political band at all–with this exception of this anti-Ronald Reagan song which somehow managed to get past Johnny Ramones’ staunch Republican views. If here were a live today, I have a feeling he’d be a Trump guy.

The song is still about Reagan visiting a graveyard visiting a graveyard filed with members of the Waffen-SS in 1985, but this all-star punk cover (featuring members of the Offspring, Interrupters, Flatliners, Millencolin, and more) feels just as relevant today. (Via Tom)
