Animal Boy:The Ramones

Animal Boy is the ninth studio album by the American punk band the Ramones. It featured the songs "My Brain Is Hanging Upside Down (Bonzo Goes to Bitburg)", written as a protest of President Ronald Reagan's visit to the Bitburg cemetery in West Germany;[1] "Somebody Put Something in My Drink", written by Richie Ramone, the band's drummer from 1983 to 1987; and "Love Kills", Dee Dee Ramone's ode to deceased friend Sid Vicious.[3]

Three songs on the album were co-written by Jean Beauvoir, formerly of the Plasmatics.

The music video for the song "Something to Believe In" featured a mock charitable event entitled "Hands Across Your Face", a parody of Hands Across America.[4][5]
