Hey! Ho! Let’s Go: The Anthology is a two–disc compilation that attempts to summarize the Ramones‘ career in its entirety. Every Ramones studio album is represented with the exception of Acid Eaters, their 1993 covers album. Some versions of this album include a hardcover 80 page booklet with liner notes by David Fricke and Danny Fields.
Two songs are billed as being previously unissued song versions: “Rock ‘n’ Roll High School” and “I Want You Around” are the original Ed Stasium mixes for the film Rock ‘n’ Roll High School, before they were remixed by Phil Spector for the accompanying soundtrack album. However, the Ed Stasium mix of “Rock ‘n’ Roll High School” had previously appeared on the 1988 compilation album Ramones Mania.
The album was certified platinum in Argentina as of 2001-04-24, selling more than 40,000 copies. It was also certified silver in the UK (more than 60,000 copies sold) as of December 24, 2004, and gold in Australia by 2006 selling more than 35,000 copies.
Stickers on the original boxset release advertised the collection humorously with the sum: “2 minutes + 3 chords x 58 tracks”.
