I’ve been playing my new album while blogging. Just now I thought to myself, “I didn’t know Pearl Jam had a song on here!” But when I checked the list, it was Creed. *sigh* What clones. Reminds me of when the first Stone Temple Pilots album came out and my ex- called them “Stone Temple Vedder Pellets.” On a positive note, though, I’ve been rocking out to Wheatus’s “Teenage Dirtbag”. How did I miss this song? It rules.

    I’ve got two tickets to Iron Maiden, baby…

Toploader also had me dancin’ (in the moonlight). My image of them as a band straight out of the 70’s isn’t helped, though, by the fact that everytime I see them on telly I think to myself: “When did Hyde from ‘That Seventies Show’ get a rock band?”

  1. I didn’t think it was possible to miss that Wheatus track: it seems to have been in the charts all year long.

    Have you heard their follow-up, a cover version of Erasure’s ‘Respect’? It’s not as maddeningly catchy as ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ but it’s still pretty damn fine.

  2. I guess I haven’t been paying attention to the charts so far this year, other than when I randomly catch cd:uk on a hungover Saturday morning…

    I’ll see if I can find the follow-up on the Net today. Although I think it’ll be quite some time before I get “Teenage Dirtbag” out of my head…
