It’s time to get your “1-2-3-4” on, as Blink-182 are back with “Dance With Me,” and a video that pays obvious homage to one of the great punk bands of all-time, the Ramones.

The Malloy Brothers-directed clip is styled much like the Ramones’ early era, with Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker all sporting leather jackets and mop haired wigs as they’re being interviewed about punk and their new song.

At one point, Hoppus notes, “Punk is doing what you think is right on your own terms and not answering to anybody else and not letting people tell you how you should live your life,” before the interviewer sheepishly asks about the song’s first line, which is a classic Tom DeLonge sophomoric masturbatory comment much like Blink’s early days.

The nods don’t stop there as the Blink-182 guys still dressed as The Ramones mimicking the famous Ramones video for “I Wanna Be Sedated” among other Ramones touchtones throughout the clip. See how many easter eggs you catch.

“This video is a love letter to The @RamonesOfficial,” the band stated through X. You can watch the clip and check out the lyrics for the song below.

Blink-182, “Dance With Me”.

Blink-182, “Dance With Me” Lyrics

When I teach masturbation, I’m always just like, “have fun with it”

Don’t think maybe she won’t refuse
She knows everything that I think
That girl, prettiest I could lose
My games, shittiest I could be
I’ve been waiting around to lose
So dumb, trying to make believe
You’re mine, what are you gonna do
Come here, do you want to come dance with me?

Tellin’ your friends, you know you want to (dance with me)
Shaking those hips like the devil’s got you (dance with me)
Waiting all night, cause now I want you (dance with me)
Eyeing that chance, here we go I got you (dance with me)

Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé
Yeah! We’re doing it all night long
Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé
Yeah! We’re doing it all night long
Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé
Yeah! We’re doing it all night long
Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé
Yeah! We’re doing it all night long

This song is making me beg for more
These drinks breaking up old routines
My mind, pushing me out the door
So fucked, wishing I weren’t so green
Me you, won’t you just fall in love
Like me, or am I just too naïve
Tonight, it’s getting a bit too rough
But now, really wanting to make her scream

Tellin’ your friends, you know you want to (dance with me)
Shaking those hips like the devil’s got you (dance with me)
Waiting all night, cause now I want you (dance with me)
Eyeing that chance, here we go I got you (dance with me)

Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé
Yeah! We’re doing it all night long
Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé
Yeah! We’re doing it all night long
Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé
Yeah! We’re doing it all night long
Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé
Yeah! We’re doing it all night long

Dance with me, come dance with me
Dance with me, come dance with me
Been doing it all night long

Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé
Yeah! We’re doing it all night long
Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé
Yeah! We’re doing it all night long
Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé
Yeah! We’re doing it all night long
Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé, Olé
Yeah! We’re doing it all night long

You beat my heart from miles away
Yeah! We’re doing it all night long
You spin me like a hurricane
Yeah! We’re doing it all night long
You like to play your little games
Yeah! We’re playing them all night long
I’d like to have you every day, every way
And do it all night long
