I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend (2:16)

Cover of Ramones

From Ramones and 24 other releases

“I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend” is an endearing love song that proved to be one of the band’s most enduring compositions. The relatively tender song is seen as a nod to the Ramones’ early rock and roll influences. The studio version somewhat uncharacteristically features a glockenspiel. The song was written by drummer Tommy. According to Dee Dee Ramone’s autobiography Lobotomy, “We could have made a million dollars on it, because the Bay City Rollers wanted to do it.”
