I Don’t Wanna Die In The Basement – Song Of The Day

Dee Dee RamoneCan’t go wrong with a title like “I Don’t Wanna Die In The Basement”. From Dee Dee Ramone‘s 2000 album Hop Around, the song was certainly one rough and gloomy glimpse into Dee Dee’s state of mind though it was essentially a different take on The Ramones“I Don’t Wanna Go Down To The Basement”. The latter definitely had a much more endearing, upbeat vibe than this version, however. The lyrics are pretty straight-forward (to say the least), the tone is increasingly sinister: it opened the album on a very dark, very Dee Dee note, which is why it’s so memorable.
