Hey! Ho! Let's Go: The Anthology

Hey! Ho! Let's Go: The Anthology is a two–disc compilation that attempts to summarize the Ramones' career in its entirety. It features two previously unissued song versions; "Rock 'n' Roll High School" and "I Want You Around" are the Ed Stasium mixes from the Rock 'n' Roll High School original motion picture soundtrack. Some versions of this album include a hardcover 80 page booklet with liner notes by David Fricke and Danny Fields. Every Ramones studio album is represented with the exception of Acid Eaters, their 1993 covers album.

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 humourously with the sum: "2 minutes + 3 chords x 58 tracks".

Re-Issue

In 2001 (possibly because of Joey Ramone's death), Hey! Ho! Let's Go was re-released. This new version did not include the eighty page booklet and altered the tracklisting of CD 1. "I'm Affected" and "I Can't Make it on Time" were removed and replaced with "Baby I Love You", which was the band's highest charting hit in the UK.
