Check out EW to listen to the playlist and read Billie Joe's personal thoughts. Here's what he had to say about his favorite musician, Joey Ramone:

[quote]Joey is the Jesus of punk. He has this endearing quality where his voice matches the way he looked. He’s incredibly handsome, in a praying-mantis kind of way. He’s just gangly and long-legged and his voice [sounds like] that—it’s like a really insecure kid that’s become empowered through rock & roll music.[/quote]

It's great to see some bands with family ties high on Billie Joe's list, along with legendary favorites.
