Appearances

Overview

"Teenage Victory Song" was released as a b-side to the UK Hash Pipe retail vinyl single, and the Japanese "Island in the Sun" CD single. The song was a strong contender to make the cut of The Green Album, but ultimately did not make the cut.

According to a Weezer.com update from February 5, 2001, Karl Koch, some fans missed an opportunity to appear on a Weezer song during the mixing of this track at South Beach Studios:
Rivers was working on multiple aspects of "Teenage Victory Song", doing various guitar and vocal overdubs and fixes, and he determined that some good "gang vocals" were needed. We had Mikey, myself, and Carlos the engineer on hand, but Rivers was really hoping for a true gang, and went outside looking for some fans! There was a small group out front earlier in the day, but unfortunately the area was deserted by the time Rivers went a-hunting for guest vocalists. Fortunately we were able to make do with the "gang" already on hand, and the part turned out fine.

Lyrics

I'm gonna bury you
I'm gonna bury you
I don't care what you do
As long as I approve

'Cause you don't know the way I feel
Spinning here inside this wheel
I've been waiting for so long
To sing my teenage victory song

Whoa, Lord, I'm comin' home

I'm gonna play all night
I'm gonna beat you right
And mash you in the nads
And kick you outta sight

'Cause you don't know the way I feel
Spinning here inside this wheel
I've been waiting for so long
To sing my teenage victory song

Whoa, Lord, I'm comin' home

C'mon, everybody, sing along (Sing along)
Let's make them feel dumb
'Cause they were wrong (They were wrong)
We'll dance and sing the night away (Night away)
Say you'll stay

'Cause you dont know the way I feel
