Santa's got a GTO

Okay, another Christmas season is upon us, so it's time to put a little ho-ho-ho in our horsepower. Most of you know I'm crazy about the Ramones, and that enthusiasm extends to some of their tribute bands as well. Today's stop on the tour of the truly unusual features the world's only all-female Ramones tribute band, the Ramonas, and their festive little holiday number called "Santa's Got a GTO". This video features original imagery including renderings by legendary advertising artist Art Fitzpatrick.

So put some Octane in your holiday and take a look:


  1. back when I was a young cool pretty college punk, a friend of mine's father owned a bunch of recording studios in the west village. i hung around all night once listening to the Ramones "rehearse" and I use quotes because mostly they just yelled at each other, joked around, did "recreationals" and swore a lot, lol. I still knew i was watching something worth watching.
