"Suckerpunch" is a 1994 single by The Wildhearts.
One of the B-sides is "29 x The Pain", whose title is derived from Hüsker Dü's song "59 Times the Pain". A fan favourite, "29 x The Pain" is about the uplifting effect music has on a fan and is an homage to Ginger's influences, namechecking The Replacements, Hüsker Dü, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Starz, Big Black, the Queen album Sheer Heart Attack, Cheap Trick, The Clash album London Calling, Jason & the Scorchers, Stiff Little Fingers, Blue Öyster Cult, Kiss, Heart, The Damned, Twisted Sister and Kurt Cobain. The song was re-recorded in 1996 with the line about Kurt Cobain replaced with a reference to Richey Edwards.
The song has been covered by German punk band Gigantor on their 2001 album Back to the Rockets.
A fifth track, entitled "Duck Song", appears at the end of the EP but is not listed in the liner notes. It is set to the tune of "The Stars and Stripes Forever" and is sung by drummer Ritch Battersby.
