Watch Tokyo Police Club Cover Wheatus’ “Teenage Dirtbag”
Remember Wheatus’ “Teenage Dirtbag”? You may not think you do, but the second you hit play on the track and get roundhouse-kicked with some major nostalgia, you will. That hook, the placement in the movie Loser (back when Jason Biggs was a likable romantic lead and Orange Is The New Black hadn’t made us all hate him), that music video filled with high school angst … It makes sense that Tokyo Police Club have chosen to cover the song as part of the AVClub’s Undercover series. I mean, TPC even shot an angsty high school-themed music video of their own (shot at my high school near the end of my own angsty time there, I might add). Below you can watch TPC doing “Teenage Dirtbag,” along with brief discussion of the film’s tie-in with Loser.
