* When Music/NewOrder released their singles compilation ''Substance'' in 1987, they recorded the song "1963" to promote it, but when they came to produce a B-side for it, they came up with "True Faith", and "1963" got relegated to the flipside instead. However, "1963" was so popular with both critics and fans that when they put out their next GreatestHits compilation a few years later, a remixed version finally got released as an A-side in its own right.

* In 1984, Music/KennyRogers released "This Woman" b/w "Buried Treasure". While the former was a #23 pop hit and #2 on the AC charts, country radio preferred the Music/BeeGees-penned B-side "Buried Treasure", and it went to #3 on the country charts at the same time.

* In TheSixties one way to ensure that the intended song got radio airplay instead of radio stations playing the B-side was to have a quickly-recorded, [[StylisticSuck not particularly great]] [[{{Instrumentals}} Instrumental]] on the B-side. Creator/PhilSpector in particular was notorious for this. His protégé Creator/SonnyBono adopted this for his productions, using the ThemeNaming device of mentioning [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quetzal quetzals]] somewhere in the title.

** Putting an instrumental version of the A-side song on the B-side.
** Only including the A-side song on promotional copies sent to radio stations, whether by leaving the B-side blank or by putting the A-side song on both sides. When stereo on 45rpm records returned in the late 1960's (following a brief experiment in 1958-61), some promotional copies would have the same song in stereo on one side (for FM-Stereo stations) and in mono on the other side (for AM stations).

* "Wipe Out" by The Surfaris was improvised and recorded in two takes within ten minutes because their producer reminded them they needed a B-side for "Surfer Joe". While "Surfer Joe" was a hit of its own (#62 in the ''Billboard'' chart), "Wipe Out" ended up being the more popular of the two sides, making the charts three times (in 1963 at #2, in 1966 at #16 and in 1970 at #110) and being well-known to this day.
