Writer: Rick Nielsen
Producer: Tom Werman

8 weeks; No. 62

Cheap Trick provided the ultimate Seventies teen anthem in "Surrender," with a verse about a kid who catches his parents making out and gets stoned to his Kiss records. Guitarist- songwriter Nielsen's secret? "I [had] to go back and put myself in the head of a 14-year-old."

Appears on: Heaven Tonight (Epic)
