Info on the CD single for St. Anger is said to be due for release on June 23rd. The single will contain the title track and 5 Ramones covers, 3 of which were confirmed to be recorded last year. "53rd and 3rd" was also recorded last year and released on the Ramones tribute album "We're A Happy Family". The tracklist includes:
- St. Anger
- Cretin Hop
- Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue
- Today Your Love Tomorrow The World

According to Encyclopedia Metallica.com, the band has released the whole St.Anger album for online streaming on the internet, but to make it difficult for us, they added it to eleven sites, making it a treasure hunt.
