#21 Wheatus, “Teenage Dirtbag” (2001)
What It Was: A “loud, quiet, loud” alt-rock jam marked by the captivatingly androgynous vocals of lead singer Brendan B. Brown. It appeared on the soundtrack to the hit movie Loser, which explains the video you see below.
What Happened Next: The band’s second single, a cover of Erasure’s “A Little Respect” performed well in the UK—but that was seemingly the last good thing to happen to Wheatus. A quick browse of the band’s Wikipedia page reads like a laundry list of bad luck: Fights with their record label, musicians quitting, family members dying, servers crashing on the eve of a digital release. Someone keep their drummers away from the garden.
Where Are They Now?: Wheatus was always more popular in the UK and Australia than in the States, and the band still tours both countries, with Brown as the only original member left. They’ve also struck up a friendship with Weezer; the similarly named bands now cover each other’s songs in concert.
