The Undertones - It's Going To Happen (1981)

Released in May 1981, It's Going To Happen was The Undertones' last Top 40 single reaching #18 in the UK singles chart. It was lifted from the album Positive Touch which peaked at #17 in the UK album charts.

The Undertones were a punk rock/new wave band who formed in Northern Ireland in 1975. The band's debut single release in October 1978 was Teenage Kicks (a firm favourite with the now deceased Radio One DJ John Peel), which reached #31 in the UK singles chart. The band released thirteen singles and four studio albums before they disbanded in July 1983. The Undertones reformed in 1999 (lead singer Feargal Sharkey was replaced by Paul McLoone) and are still together.

The band's two other 80s hits were My Perfect Cousin (#9 - April 1980) and Wednesday Week (#11 - July 1980).
