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.

A few weeks ago, we crowdsourced a list of the greatest debut albums of the 1980s. You provided us with more than 100 titles — too many for just one episode of Teenage Kicks. On December 26, 2020, we aired part 1, so this week, it's Part 2, covering the latter half of the '80s. We'll hear classic debut albums by Beastie Boys, Pet Shop Boys, Smithereens, Guns N' Roses, Public Enemy, Pixies, Nine Inch Nails and more. It's all great debuts of the '80s, part 2 — this week on Teenage Kicks.
