Album The Undertones. Teenage Kicks Lyrics. A teenage dream's so hard to beat Every time she walks down the street Another girl in the neighbourhood Wish she was mine, she looks so good. I wanna hold her, wanna hold her tight Get teenage kicks right through the night. I'm gonna call her on the telephone Have her over cos I'm all alone I need excitement, oh I need it bad And it's the best I've ever had.

Teenage Kicks" is the debut single by Irish punk rock/new wave band The Undertones. Written in the summer of 1977 by the band's principal songwriter, John O'Neill, the song was recorded on 16 June 1978 and initially released that September upon independent Belfast record label Good Vibrations, before the band-at the time unobligated to any record label-signed to Sire Records on 2 October 1978. Here Comes the Summer.
Teenage Kicks is a brilliant and essential punk EP, introducing a band as important as the Buzzcocks, Clash and Sex Pistols, but who never received the widespread acclaim. Feargal Sharkey is the perfect singer - full of pain and neuroses. John and Damien O’Neill patch together an impenetrable wall of sound. The Undertones formed in Derry, Northern Ireland, in 1975. Belfast record shop owner Terry Hooley released this EP on his own label in September 1978. The EP was a major means of expression for the punk-new wave movement where the emphasis was on such brevity that a single would seem like a financial gyp. The EP allowed people a greater insight into a band’s musical mission.

Another classic record at around this time was Television's album Marquee Moon, on which the song 'Prove It' also had that standard three‑chord progression. Sometimes, you can spend weeks on a song and then at other times you'll write it in five minutes. In the spirit of classic rock & roll, I quite literally wrote 'Teenage Kicks' in five minutes - the words, the music, everything. Still, while it may have been John Peel's favourite record, it's certainly nowhere near being one of the best records ever made.
