At the cusp of the new millennium, the sound of alt-rock may have been changing but Wheatus proved that teen angst will always remain the same. “Teenage Dirtbag,” the band’s breakout hit, began its reign as one of the most perfect high school anthems with a music video starring Jason Biggs and Mena Suvari, and 13 years later, One Direction’s live covers have brought it to a new generation of ears. At the release show for their forthcoming Valentine, celebrate the band’s new tunes and relive those wonder years because they’re still teenage dirtbags, like you.
