"Gabba gabba, hey"
--'Pinhead,' Ramones (1977)
The chant, often led in concert by a sign-toting roadie, might've been the most enduring thing these punk pioneers ever crafted. They borrowed it from the creepy 1932 cult flick 'Freaks,' in which a host of side-show denizens surrounded an interloper and burbled "Gooble gooble, we accept her, one of us!" Director Robert Altman, in his 1992 film 'The Player,' adapted the phrase as well, spreading the gospel of pinhead-dom to a decidedly different audience.
