The Ramones - Pet Semetary (video)

Slightly more poignant after their deaths, the video of "Pet Semetary" is a bizarre low budget affair. Many of the characters are inexplicable, particularly the couple in the coffin, but I think that's part of it's charm. It makes you question whether some one was actually in charge of the video and at what point the budget ran out and they decided to eat up time by filming The Ramones walking around an actual semetary. It's interesting that The Misfits pretty much spent their entire career mining The Ramones' horror themed songs. Of course, they were never as good at it, but The Misfits always were a one album band, but unlike The Sex Pistols they didn't have the good sense to stop there.

Happy Halloween!
