All Ramones Go to Heaven in Funny or Die Video
By Philip Cosores
Too soon? No way, not when you are talking about The Ramones.
It is hard to imagine the punk legends wanting any kind of sacred respect surrounding their passing, which just came to completion with the death of Tommy Ramone, the last survivng member. Leave it to Funny or Die to push on to find the chuckles in loss.
Traci Lords and Kids in the Hall‘s Dave Foley play disciplinarians in heaven, letting the Ramones know that their earth antics need reform, asking the four punks to mend some of their rowdy ways in heaven. It is a lighthearted bit, but not one without heart, finishing with a moment of reflection that points toward a personal connection that the video’s creators had with the band.
