This 7-inch single in red vinyl was intended for release to promote the compilation “We’re A Happy Family” and included three tracks taken from that tribute album to the Ramones. The title track was U2’s “Beat on the Brat” on the A-Side of the vinyl. The Red Hot Chili Peppers contribute “Havana Affair” and Marilyn Manson contributes “The KKK Took My Baby Away”, both on side B.
The single was pressed on Columbia Records, and intended for commercial sale. The artwork accompanying the vinyl has a UPC on the back sleeve. Somewhere along the way the plans for this commercial single were cancelled and it was never widely released. However copies have circulated over the years, so it was late in the cycle when plans for this vinyl were stopped.
