Tienerangs
Kobus Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Betreur jou lot, Blameer vir God
Staaf jou eise met trane en snot
Middelvinger in die lug en jou duim in jou hol
Almal is teen jou en die wêreld skuld jou fokol
Skryf ′n hartseer gediggie oor jou tienerangs
En sê Fok jou

Blameer jou ma, blameer jou pa
Vir die eiebelang wat jy saam met jou ronddra
Voel jammer vir jouself elke fokn dag
Skree as jy moet stilbly en huil as jy moet lag
Skryf 'n morbiede bundel oor jou tieneragtige angs
En dra jou las soos ′n eremedalje, verwyt soos 'n kroon
Skryf 'n ballade van wanhoop oor jou tienerangs
En sê Fok jou

Skryf ′n ballade van wanhoop oor jou tienerangs
En sê Fok jou
Bou ′n stormdrang altaar vir jou tienerangs




En skree
Fok Jou

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Kobus's song "Tienerangs" are about the difficulties and struggles of being a teenager, with a strong message of rebellion and defiance. The opening lines, "Betreur jou lot, blameer vir God, staaf jou eise met trane en snot" suggest that the singer feels helpless, resentful, and angry at their situation, blaming the world and God for their troubles. The song continues to express a sense of isolation and opposition, with lines like "almal is teen jou en die wêreld skuld jou fokol" indicating a feeling of being against the world and the world against them.


The chorus, "skryf ′n ballade van wanhoop oor jou tienerangs en sê fok jou" is the most memorable line from the song, urging listeners to channel their teenage angst into music, art, or self-expression, rather than turning it inward or directing it at others. The song goes on to encourage the listener to rebel against authority (blameer jou ma, blameer jou pa), feel sorry for themselves (voel jammer vir jouself elke fokn dag), and celebrate their struggles like an "eredemedalje".


Overall, "Tienerangs" is a powerful anthem for teenagers who feel misunderstood, overlooked, or frustrated with the world around them. It encourages them to channel their emotion into positive outlets, embrace their rebellious spirit, and find a sense of catharsis and validation in their struggles.

South African Music Awards 2008: The K.O.B.U.S. album 'SwaarMetaal' won the SAMA award in the category Best Afrikaans Rock album. Here's hoping that this is the beginning of the acknowledgment of SA metal bands by the local industry and the inclusion of a metal or at the very least a 'hard rock' category!

@Johannicus
