Teenage Dirtbag
Wheatus Lyrics


Her name is Noel
I have a dream about her
She rings my bell
I got gym class in half an hour
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 dirt bag, baby
Yeah, I'm just a teenage dirt bag, baby
Listen to Iron Maiden, baby, with me, ooh

Her boyfriend's a dick
And he brings a gun to school
When he'd simply kick my ass if he knew the truth
He lives on my block
And 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
Yeah, I'm just a teenage dirtbag, baby
Listen to Iron Maiden, baby, with me, ooh

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

Man, I feel like mold
It's prom night and I am lonely
'Lo and behold
She's walkin' 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?
"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, ooh"

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

Lmao it’s actually kinda funny how immensely wrong this entire thread is, and is based off something that it not at all true.
This song was not written for this movie.
It was written YEARS before it even came out. Nor was it written to be the movies single.
If anything, the movie and the music video were written entirely around the song lol.
Search for a video about the origins of this song or something.
There’s also something about his super girly voice at the end essentially being a giant “Fuck You” to all the labels who shut them down because they thought he sounded too girly.
The song was written years before the movie, and had three different versions released before this one, and is entirely about the singers own experience in high school, and how his town thought that heavy metal was the “devils music”, and anyone who listened to it were “dirtbags”, which is why he asks her to go see Iron Maiden, as at that time, they were basically the scapegoats in that town for why all heavy metal is evil, but he just thought it was genuinely good music, but as such, still considered himself to be a “Teenage Dirtbag”.
Also note how in the song, the girls name is Noelle, while in the movie, Mena Suvari’s name is Dora.
Also, nowhere in the movie is an Iron Maiden concert alluded to, or “Iron Maiden tickets” ever mentioned, as again, the song was not written for the movie. The movie was made, and then the music video was quite literally made entirely around the song. Not the other way around.
Also, the boyfriend in the song drives an Iroc. Literally the ultimate “Chad/Bro” car in the late 80’s and 90’s.
And that’s not anywhere in the movie either.
Finally; How else could you explain the line -
“Her boyfriends a dick, he brings a gun to school”?? Because that’s not anywhere in the movie or music video either lol. In fact, there is a record scratch over the line now I believe.

It’s honestly pretty funny when someone just jumps to a conclusion like this, and just assumes they’re right about something their entire lives when in fact, they’ve had it ASS BACKWARDS the entire time lmao 😂
Just fucked all your universes eh?!?
Sorry to burst your bubb’s guys!! 🤷🏻‍♂️ haha.

hallo tschau

You are not a dirtbag, you might feel like it sometimes, but other times not, i am sure of it. You only think, that you are a dirtbag, but this is just a thought!
