"Poison Heart" is the 1992 single by the Ramones written by ex-bassist Dee Dee Ramone. It has a different pace to normal Ramones works. It was given to the band in exchange for bailing Dee Dee out of jail. The song was also included in the film Pet Sematary Two (1992). The song's video was directed by Samuel Bayer.

The song was also covered by Dee Dee Ramone's friend and former The Dead Boys vocalist Stiv Bators and was released posthumously on the 1996 Last Race album.

Finnish rock band HIM recorded and released a cover of the song as a b-side to their hit single "Wings of a Butterfly", in 2005.
