Gabba Gabba Hey


"Gabba Gabba Hey" is a catchphrase associated with the punk rock band the Ramones. The phrase is included in the song "Pinhead", which contained the lyrics: "Gabba gabba we accept you, we accept you, one of us". The song ends with: "Gabba gabba hey, gabba gabba hey!....".

The slogan comes from a scene in the 1932 motion picture Freaks, in which the title characters chant the line "Gooble, gobble, we accept her, we accept her, one of us, one of us!" that the band viewed at an art house cinema on a rare day off when an outdoor event they were to perform at was canceled due to weather.
