What are your favourites of this diverse genre?

When I think of teen angst I think primarily of songs by The Smiths, Avril Lavinge and in what might seem an odd choice The Corrs. On my artist choices : The Smiths - the most depressing band in the world as they have been called - produced some of the best sexual teen angst in music. My songs from Avril come from her first 2 albums when she actually was still a teenager and writing songs about that. I haven't bought any of he albums since then but of course she's grown up and doesn't do the teen angst thing anymore I don't think. Also with The Corrs I think of Andrea as the main writer of lyrics and on their first 2 albums she seemed to be writing alot about rejection and broken relationships and 'unrequited love'. I don't know if they really qualify for teen angst but Freak it I'm sticking with them:


My favourites from them include:

The Smiths - The boy with the thorn in his side
The Smiths - Heaven Knows I'm miserable now
The Smiths - What She Said
The Smiths - That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore
The Smiths - How Soon Is Now
Avril Lavinge - Losing Grip
Avril Lavinge - Nobody's Home
Avirl Lavinge - My Happy Ending
The Corrs - Forgiven Not Forgotten
The Corrs - Love To Love You
The Corrs - What Can I Do
The Corrs - Don't Say You Love Me

The Smiths in the same list as Avril Lavigne and The Corrs! :sobbing: If Morrissey weren't such a douchebag I'd feel sorry for him :oh:

Morrissey likes Tatu. I'm sure he can appreciate the talents of misses Lavinge and Corr(s). :)

Morrissey is ridiculously stuck up, I'm sure he thinks he's well above anything ever done by Lavigne or the Corrs. He's not right, but I'm sure he'd think that, which is what makes this funny.

One of the more accurate quotes I've seen on Morrissey:

Elvis Costello on Morrissey
“Morrissey writes wonderful song titles, but sadly he often forgets to write the song.”I like a lot of Morrissey's/The Smiths music, but a lot of it does tend to ramble and not have much structure :lol:

Back on topic - you can't forget Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit"...that's what I think of first and foremost.

Do Teen angst songs have to be Metal, Hard Rock or Punk?
I'm thinking it could also be hiphop and even pop. Not sure?

In theory it could be any genre, it's all about the lyrics.

I'm pretty sure Taylor Swift wrote the gospel of teen angst :lol:



Also, I now have the urge to listen to The Corrs again. It's been a while...

The Veronicas sounded like they had listened to Avril Lavinge's first album alot with their own teen angst songs on their debut album.

Also I forgot to mention My Chemical Romance and the whole "emo" thing, probably because I don't listen to that much.

The Corrs have always been terribly under appreciated. Nice people who write their own songs and can sing.

No no, I'm not dissing the Corrs, I'm just saying they're not teen angst :).

That's true though. I can never see the group that sang "What can I do" as teen angst :hysteric:

Some songs from the first few albums only. Then they went off in other directions. Andrea at least actually was a teenager on the first album :o

Alanis Morrisette "You Oughta Know" maybe not the best but that's all I can come up with

Teenage Dirtbag - Wheatus
1979 - Smashing Pumpkins
Things I'll Never Say - Avril Lavinge

What's wrong with my tongue
These words keep slipping away
I stutter, I stumble
Like I've got nothing to say

That is some deep stuff :sobbing:


dont know why but the literal versions are kind of funny

Teen angst? You want teen angst? Try this...this really does have to be the ultimate teen angst song.

GET DOWN ON YOUR KNEES!!!! YOU TEACHERS ARE SO STUPID!!!! I HOPE YOU ALL ROT IN HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh by the way, this is the legendary awesome Half Japanese. When Kurt Cobain killed himself, he was wearing a Half Japanese T Shirt. This band really took rock music to extremes it had never been to before or since. And they did it with humour, a wicked sense of fun and an enthusiasm that was all their own.

Not a personal fave, but it is an important song in the history of teen angst :).

The Corrs are great yeah, I like this duo between Michael and Janet Jackson, Scream was the song, not really 'teen' but it's about angst against the world

So many problems :sad:
