"Teenage Dirtbag" is the debut single from the eponymous debut album by American rock band Wheatus. Weezer covered the song live from 2010 to 2012.


"Teenage Dirtbag" is often mistakenly believed to be a Weezer song, often being tagged as Weezer on peer-to-peer file sharing applications in the early 2000s.[1] Because of this, Weezer began covering the song during live shows in 2010, later performing it during a concert on the Weezer Cruise in 2012. Wheatus responded by frequently covering "My Name Is Jonas", beginning during their live tour in 2011.[2]

Live performances


Weezer cover

Original version


Her name is Noelle
I have a dream about her
She rings my bell
I got gym class in half an hour
And oh, how she rocks
In Keds and tube socks
But she doesn't know who I am
And she doesn't give a damn about me

Cause I’m just a teenage dirtbag, baby
I'm just a teenage dirtbag, baby
Listen to Iron Maiden baby with me

Her boyfriend's a dick
He brings a gun to school
And he'd simply kick
My ass if he knew the truth
He lives on my block
He drives an IROC
But he doesn't know who I am
And he doesn't give a damn about me

'Cause I’m just a teenage dirtbag, baby
I'm just a teenage dirtbag baby
Listen to Iron Maiden baby with me

Oh yeah, dirtbag
No, she doesn't know what she's missing

And I feel like mold
It's prom night and I am lonely
Lo and behold
She's walking over to me
This must be fake
My lip starts to shake
How does she know who I am?
And why does she give a damn about me?
"I've got two tickets to Iron Maiden, baby
Come with me Friday, don't say maybe
I'm just a teenage dirtbag baby like you"
