I have no idea who was responsible for choosing some of the early Ramones singles but they clearly got it all wrong at times!

On this day in 1977 on both sides of the pond Sire Records released two different new Ramones singles. In the UK it was I Remember You - whilst a good song I reckon they could have chosen Suzy Is A Headbanger as the A-Side as it showed the band's wonderful quirky nature off so much better!

In the US they chose Swallow My Pride (which would get a British release in July with an additional track of Let's Dance recorded at The Roxy in LA). Again not a great choice I think. Glad To See You Go or Now I Wanna Be A Good Boy would have made great singles! The B-side is one of their most loved songs Pinhead (even that would have made a great A-Side).
