“Head On” is a song written by Jim Reid and William Reid of the Scottish alternative rock band The Jesus and Mary Chain. “Head On” was originally recorded by The Jesus and Mary Chain for their 1989 album Automatic. It was released as a single in November 1989. In the UK, it was released in seven different formats, including four 7” singles. One 7” single was released per week, and one of them included a cardboard box to house the full set. Although the song only made it up to #57 in the country where the band first found fame, the United Kingdom, it peaked at #2 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart in the United States. The song has been covered by several other groups, most notably the American alternative rock band Pixies, on their fourth studio album, Trompe Le Monde. Read on...
