  • Lyrics
  • "England Rocks" was released in 1977 as the A Side of a single put out on the CBS label by Ian Hunter's Overnight Angels (backed by "Wild N' Free"), and also appeared on the remastered CD Overnight Angels as a bonus track.
    The same song - with suitably amended words - was released in 1979 as "Cleveland Rocks", and was a massive hit for the former Mott The Hoople frontman. >>
