16 October 2012 – Wheatus – Teenage Dirtbag – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

1999-2001 was a pretty dark time for alternative rock radio (it’s only starting to recover in the last few years). While it’s easy (and fun) to blame it all on the rise of Neu Metal, that wasn’t the death-knell entirely. The airwaves were also flooded with a crap-load of cookie-cutter one-hit wonder bands that mostly sounded the same (many of which were quite forgettable). Not to solely pick on Wheatus (there were plenty of others), but without looking it up, name another song by them. Yeah, I can’t do it either, and I actually owned their record (past-tense). That said, there was a reason why I owned this record. The song’s a ton of fun and besides…I’m an Iron Maiden fan…baby.
