Teenage years may be fleeting, but it seems ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ is for life, as Wheatus’ debut single continues to thrive wherever you look. In 2022, it became the cornerstone of a huge TikTok movement. The “Teenage Dirtbag photos” trend has now been embraced by nearly a million people, including celebrities such as Madonna, Lady Gaga, Mark Ruffalo, Lil Nas X, Jon Bon Jovi, Chevy Chase, and countless others, resulting in the hashtag #teenagedirtbag being viewed over 2 BILLION times worldwide. Fans of the hit Netflix series “Big Mouth” might have noticed it in the widely shared trailer for it’s 7th season. And if that wasn’t enough, in 2023, it surprised everyone again by re-entering the UK Top 40 charts.
