Beat the Brat, Please

Published by Rhianna Mohamed under Looking at Music - MOMA


Ramones, originally from Queens, NY, is one of the most renowned bands of all time. When I saw their song, “Beat on the Brat” at the exhibition, I thought it was going to be one of the best tracks I’ll have ever listen to. I was right. With their three chords, a guitar, bass, and drums, Beat on the Brat was another song I knew I had to buy from iTunes later that night. The lyrics were so “authentic”, though unfortunately repetitive. It’s a song you can just sit back in a lounge chair and play a video game to. It’s liveliness is what makes it a Ramones song, as the Ramones are what revolutionized arenas into clubs and lounges. Now, you’ve all seen my dance skills and know they’re nothing special, but I may just be able to bust a new move or two to this song. Check out their video on youtube here.

    I know my business group definitely felt like “Beating on the Brat” when it came to the business project.

    No, they aren’t from Flushing. But I definitely prefer S.H.E. to this music. I also didn’t like Beat the Brat. The lyrics kept on repeating themselves over and over.

    This was BEFORE the bum on the 2 train.

    Our lives were changed after MoMA. Isn’t that right Sai ;)?

    Authentic lyrics, that’s really interesting.
    And you buy music from iTunes? That is so old school.

    Side note: is the Ramones from Flushing, Queens? Because if they are not, I’m not going to listen to their music. I prefer the S.H.E that Sai recommended.

    When I went to the Museum of Modern Arts, I was dashing towards the Looking At Music Side 2 exhibit because I saw your pictures of the bright yellow wall. Little did I know about what else was going on at that time because we were running on a tight schedule that day so I’m glad you were able to share this with us.
