THE JAM Scored First No 1 Hit Single In The UK With ‘GOING UNDERGROUND’ This Day In 1980

22 March 2021

Band: The Jam
Single: Going Underground
A stand-alone single

B-side: Dreams Of Children
Released: 14 March 1980
Score: topping the UK Charts on 22 March – 41 years ago
The band’s first No 1 hit in the UK

Note:  The song was actually released as a double A-side
with ‘Dreams of Children’, which originally was planned to be
the only A-side. After a mix-up at the pressing plant, the single
eventually became a double A-side, but radio stations played
the melodic ‘Going Underground’

Here comes Weller
