Top 10 Songs About Teens


The Top Ten

1 Another Brick In the Wall, Pt.2 - Pink Floyd UListen to Sample
2 Jeremy - Pearl Jam

Jeremy spoke in class today...

I haven't heard it, but according to what it's about, it is probably very sad. - Martinglez

Yes Powerfultekin, it's a very sad song but it's very good and moving:
"Daddy didn't give attention
Oh, to the fact that mommy didn't care
King Jeremy the wicked
Oh, ruled his world
Jeremy spoke in class today
Try to forget this,
Try to erase this,
From the blackboard" - Metal_Treasure

3 My Generation - The Who

Pete Townshend wrote this song for rebellious British youths known as "Mods." It expressed their feeling that older people just don't get it. It's also about trying to find a place in society. - Metal_Treasure

Pretty much sums up teens. A few months ago a group of teens were singing this with absolute gusto in the market of my hometown. - Britgirl

Great song, one of the early (proto)punk pioneers... along with Kinks and Sonics

Funny how the generation who originally identified with this song is now the generation being told to f-f-fade away. - PetSounds

5 I'm Eighteen - Alice Cooper

Lyrics are very relatable:
"I got a baby's brain and an old man's heart
Took eighteen years to get this far
Don't always know what I'm talking' about
Feels like I'm livin' in the middle of doubt
'Cause I'm eighteen I get confused every day" - Metal_Treasure
