"Surrender" is a single by Cheap Trick released in June 1978 from the album Heaven Tonight. It was the first Cheap Trick single to enter the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at number 62. Its success in Japan, as well as the success of its preceding singles "Clock Strikes Ten" and "I Want You to Want Me", paved the way for Cheap Trick's famous concerts at Nippon Budokan in Tokyo in April 1978 that were recorded for the group's most popular album Cheap Trick at Budokan. The "Rolling Stone" deemed it "the ultimate Seventies teen anthem" and ranked it #465 on its list of "the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time". The song originates from 1976, as it was played in concerts before its release like many Cheap Trick songs.
