"Teenage Kicks" by The Undertones

It has been a busy day for me, so I don't have time for a full blog post. I'll then leave you with a song, "Teenage Kicks" by The Undertones. "Teenage Kicks" was the very first single released by The Undertones. Upon its initial release in 1978 it made it all the way to #31 on the United Kingdom's single chart. Amazingly, "Teenage Kicks" did not chart in the United States, although it has since come to be regarded as something of a classic among power pop and pop punk fans. The song has been covered by such major artists as Buzzcocks, Franz Ferdinand, Supergrass, The Raconteurs, and Snow Patrol. Teenage Kicks  also serves as a fight song for Derry F.C. (not surprising given The Undertones were from Derry, County Londonderry, Northern Ireland).

Without further ado, here is "Teenage Kicks" by The Undertones.
