* The Series/SpittingImage single "The Chicken Song" b/w "[[TheApartheidEra I've Never Met a Nice South African]]" was jokingly promoted on the cover as a "double B-side", [[DontExplainTheJoke implying that both songs were of dubious quality]].

* By his own admission, Jasper Carrott's "Funky Moped" only charted as a hit single because the B-side had a [[SubvertedKidsShow risqué]] ''TheMagicRoundabout'' sketch.

* Anyone who bought Dion's sentimental, patriotic 1968 hit "Abraham, Martin & John" and flipped the record over were suffered a big case of MoodWhiplash; the B-side was a much DarkerAndEdgier electric {{Blues}} song called "Daddy Rollin' (In Your Arms)".

* The B-side of Three Dog Night's "Shambala" was called, appropriately enough, "Our B-Side."

to:

* The B-side of Three Dog Night's "Shambala" was called, appropriately enough, "Our B-Side."B-Side". The lyrics had the band speculating what they might do if they ever got to write a song that ended up as an A-side (since Three Dog Night almost exclusively recorded songs by established outside songwriters).

Added DiffLines:

* The first single for The Doobie Brothers' ''What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits'' was "Another Park, Another Sunday", with the album track "Black Water" as a b-side. "Another Park..." peaked at #32 on the billboard charts, which its writer Tom Johnston attributes to radio stations pulling the song from airplay due to taking the lyric "the radio just seems to bring me down" personally. Meanwhile, the b-side slowly started picking up enough regional airplay that the label decided to issue it as a single on its own, which became their first #1 Billboard hit.

** " Save the Queen," taken from the sessions that produced Never Mind the Bollocks, was backed with "Did You No Wrong," another song from the sessions that didn't end up on the album. The song originated as "Scarface" from when Steve, Paul and Glen were performing with Wally Nightingale as the Swankers. Since the group was essentially a pub-rock group before John Lydon became the singer, it's instrumentally a pretty straightforward rock 'n' roll song with Lydon's punk vocal and rewritten lyrics laid on top.

* Music/PinkFloyd's ''CarefulWithThatAxe, Eugene".

to:

* Music/PinkFloyd's ''CarefulWithThatAxe, Eugene".Eugene" was originally released as the B-side to the unpopular single "Point Me At The Sky", the latter of which even the band expresses dislike for. Nonetheless, CWTAE went on to become a live staple from 1968 to 1973, becoming increasingly longer and more elaborate, even seeing release on the live side of their fourth album, Ummagumma.
