I Wanna Be Sedated

I Wanna Be Sedated

Ramones

A song about occasions where getting chemically knocked down is preferred to the boredom, inspired by life on the road:

“It’s a road song. I wrote it in 1977, through the 78. Well, Danny Fields was our first manager and he would work us to death. We would be on the road 360 days a year, and we went over to England, and we were there at Christmas time, and in Christmas time, London shuts down. There’s nothing to do, nowhere to go.”
-Joey Ramone
