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.

This week on Teenage Kicks, it's a very different show. Back in the day, a lot of major artists put out really long songs, sometimes taking up entire album side. Punk rock tried to put a stop to that — hit it and quit it; make a bold statement; who needs guitar solos and all those technical skills? Even in 1977, there were other ideas afoot. This week, long songs. Let's see how few songs we can play in two hours.
