Rayman’s Song of the Day-Surrender by Cheap Trick [VIDEO]

Though this was not a big chart hit, this teen anthem is one of Cheap Trick’s best known songs. The singer thinks of his parents as a bit overprotective and kind of weird, but he gains a new respect for them at the end of the song when he wakes up and they are rolling around on the couch listening to his KISS records. Cheap Trick guitarist-songwriter Rick Nielsen recalls in Rolling Stone‘s Top 500 songs magazine that when he wrote it, he had to “go back and put myself in the head of a 14-year-old.”
