This time, there is also no #2! The consensus here is that #1 is either "I Love Rock 'n Roll" by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts on the Boardwalk label, or "Centerfold" by the J. Geils Band, on EMI America. Whichever one is #1, the other would be #2. Neither song was ever played by WABC, as it had softened its format to a more Adult Contemporary sound by early 1982.
