Lore holds that Joey Ramone wrote "The KKK Took My Baby Away" after losing his girlfriend Linda to his (politically conservative) bandmate Johnny. However, Joey's brother Mickey is skeptical of that reading, calling it a "fluky connection" in his 2011 memoir I Slept with Joey Ramone. You might be surprised to learn (as we were!) that the band shot a music video for the song, though the Queens quartet was in fact featured on MTV's first day of programming.
