Teenage Kicks®

Teenage Kicks is The Current's weekly trip into our collective retro past, then is now as this show is the same as it never was, before Alternative wasn't, with a focus on the musical era from 1970s punk to '90s grunge, and everything that happened in between.

While we're looking for you to share your choices for our upcoming 893 Countdown of the best debut albums of all time, we're gonna shift this week on Teenage Kicks to second albums. This week on Teenage Kicks, two hours of artists who avoided the so-called "sophomore curse," and delivered stronger second albums than their debuts — Elvis Costello, Prince, Blondie, Beastie Boys, Hole, New Order, Nirvana, Pavement, PIXIES, Radiohead, R.E.M. and many more. These are albums that expanded or focused the sound, and showed some kind of growth in the journey from A to B. Avoiding the sophomore slump — this week on Teenage Kicks
