The Undertones (“Teenage Kicks”)

I was hesitant to post this song since so many bands have covered it and it has got a lot of airplay recently, but in the late 70s it was an absolute jaw-dropper. Peppy and poppy and still edgy. It’s not your Sex Pistols punk, obviously, but it certainly expresses an emotion that was part of the punk psyche and sentiment of the day. I couldn’t stop listening to it when it came out. Unfortunately, this is one band I never saw live. Yet another sad trombone.
