Even though the press ads back in 1974 claimed the track was “A VALENTINE DAY RELEASE”, the single didn’t actually come out till the following day, February 15 1974.

Sometime in the ’80s, David Bowie was being kept awake in his hotel room by someone above him playing “Rebel Rebel” on electric guitar, and terribly. Finally, Bowie walked upstairs, prepared to deliver a humiliation: he would show the guitarist how to play the song properly, then tell him to shut up. He knocked on the door, and John McEnroe, aspiring guitar player, answered it. [Source]
