The Pretenders - Stop Your Sobbing


On this date in 1979, The Pretenders released their debut single, "Stop Your Sobbing". It was backed by a demo version of "The Wait". Both tracks appeared on their self-titled debut album, though the B side was a different recording. The single reached the #34 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The Hereford, England punk/new wave band still records and performs.
