Details

The Ramones’ logo was designed by New York City artist Arturo Vega, a longtime friend who lived with several members of the band. Vega also served as the band’s lighting director and produced the band’s T-shirts, their main source of income during early touring days. Most of those designs featured artwork based on an American Bald Eagle belt buckle which had appeared on the back sleeve of the Ramones’ first album. Vega was inspired to create the band’s logo design, basing it on The Presidential Seal, after a trip to Washington, D.C., wanting the design to portray ‘An All-American Band.’

The scroll in the eagle’s beak originally read “Look Out Below”, but this was changed to “Hey. Ho. Let’s go” taken from the lyrics of the band’s first single, Blitzkrieg Bop. As an aside, that phrase is also used in several Stephen King novels (King is a huge fan), while the Ramones recorded the soundtrack song to the film adaptation of King’s Pet Sematary
