The Six Best "Hey!"s in Rock and Roll

4. The Ramones - "Blitzkrieg Bop"

You can't have "Ho!" and "Let's Go!" without "Hey!" Also, if you forgot how awesome The Ramones' guitars sound, re-educate yourself, fool.

3. Four Non Blondes - "What's Up?"

The "Hey!" in "What's Up?" by 4 Non Blondes is not the typical chanted variation. It's a slow, elongated "Hey!" that takes four seconds to elapse. This is the "Hey!" equivalent to the "Yeah!" of Nirvana's "Lithium."

Quick aside to those who grew up in St. Louis - does the official version of "What's Up?" seem less familiar than the dance remix that was heavily in rotation on Q 104.1 back in the 90s?
