Canada's early answer to new wave sounded suspiciously like classic '50s and '60s rock & roll with the amps turned up and the lips curled back in a sneer. In a lot of ways, Teenage Head skirts the edge between new wave and punk, often sounding like a slightly more versatile version of the Ramones. Lyrically speaking, it skips from one degeneracy to another and is often a bit on the stupid side (like many other punk classics, come to think of it), but the music is solid enough throughout to make that irrelevant.
