The Teen Idles were pioneers of the DC Hardcore scene in the very early '80s. Their only release was Dischord Records' first. Ian MacKaye and Jeff Nelson went on to form Minor Threat, one of the most influential bands in all of punk rock and hardcore.
The Teen Idles were among the first punk rock groups from the early 1980s hardcore movement to break out of their regional scene to tour and sell nationally.

- LyricsYou keep talking about talent
Talent? What do you know?
Instead of studying theory
We're going to get up and go
Get up and go
- LyricsLife has been the same for a long time
Go to scholl and witness the crimes
Go home and see it on the evening news
Then we got nothing to do
If there were a concert we would go
- LyricsDeadhead, deadhead, take another toke
Deadhead, deadhead, you're a lousy joke
Friend of the devil, who you trying to kid
Friends of the devil are dead like Sid
I'll be grateful when you're dead
- LyricsYou're sixteen going on thirty-two
Confusion of age surrounding you
Cigarette dangles from your painted lips
You wear the shoe because it fits
Put on your sneakers and be a kid
