The UK version has A MAN IS A MAN as the B-side. In the US it was IT’S YOUR TURN 

Both a 7″ and 12″ picture disc of ATHENA were also released in the UK. The 12″ included the long version of WON’T GET FOOLED AGAIN and A MAN IS A MAN on the B-side. A rare misprint of the picture disc incorrectly lists WHY DID I FALL FOR THAT as the B-side.
