Music Video of the Day: Poison Heart by Ramones (1992, directed by Samuel Bayer)


Though he had retired from the band to pursue a solo career, Dee Dee Ramone wrote Poison Heart and gave it to Ramones.  The story has always been that Dee Dee gave them the song as a way to thank the band for bailing him out of jail.  I don’t know if that story is true or not but it does have a ring of truth to it.  Print the legend, to quote The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.

The song appeared on the soundtrack for Pet Semetary 2 and the video is clearly inspired by that song, with the child being forcefully dragged through the cemetery while the band performs in what appears to be an underground tunnel.

This video was directed by Samuel Bayer, who has done videos for just about everyone.

Enjoy!
