"Sheena Is a Punk Rocker" is a song by the punk rock group Ramones. It first appeared on their third LP Rocket to Russia in 1977, and was also included on later pressings of the group's second album Leave Home (it replaced "Carbona Not Glue" on "Leave Home" due to complaints/threatened legal action by the manufacturers of Carbona cleaning fluid). It was released as a single, reaching #81 in the US, and #22 in the UK singles charts, backed with "I Don't Care", which was also included on Rocket to Russia.
The song was written by Joey Ramone, and is one of the Ramones' more popular and enduring songs, showing the band's surf rock influences.
The song appears in the Stephen King movie Pet Sematary. In the film, a truck driver about to run over a child is distracted by singing along to the tune. The Ramones also wrote and performed the theme song "Pet Sematary".
Polish punk rock band DUMBS recorded a cover version on their 2008 album Rocket from Poland.
New Model Army covered the song during their 2001 tour, shortly after Joey Ramone's death.
Devin Townsend released the song with different lyrics as "Metal Heads are Punk Rockers" on his parody punk album Cooked on Phonics. The song shares the same sound as the original but replaces some lyrics.
