They seem to have won.
Badfinger "No Matter What" 33.33%
Cheap Trick "Surrender" 66.67%
So "Surrender" is the ultimate power pop song. But, we already knew that..

It amazes me how Surrender came to be considered a classic. I bought the 45 in the summer of '78 when no one in my school even knew who these guys were. I think the single topped out at 60-something on the Hot 100. Our local FM's weren't playing Cheap Trick much at all. I did hear Heaven Tonight once that summer on the midnight album hour. The next day, they played Takin' Me Back. But they were all over Budokan even before it got a proper US release. Then when that album became a monster hit, and Dream Police hit as well, they started going back to Heaven Tonight and playing those songs like it was a new album. Yep, even in the late 70's, radio was pretty lame. Just play it safe, don't take chances on anything new that might cause the listeners to turn the dial.

Surrender was a pretty big hit on NYC radio. There was a station called 99x & Surrender was top 9 on it.
They would play the top 9 at 9pm & I would always listen to hear it (even though I had the LP)

The first time I heard CT was on a 7 inch promo EP from CBS, it had the studio version of IWYTWM. This must have been late 77/early 78. I loved it. Don't remember them getting much airplay, though, until one of the stations got the Budokan import, they started playing Ain't That A Shame, and maybe one other song. I already had the California Man 45 witth the live IWYTWM on the flip side, so it was interesting to me when that track took off a few months later. Probably the only time in my life I was ahead of the mainstream in discovering a band. I remember a guy at the record store playing Get the Knack for me when it first came out. Good times.
