Teenagers Lyrics - My Chemical Romance

Review The Song (176)



--*OFFICIAL LYRICS*--

They're gonna clean up your looks
With all the lies in the books
To make a citizen out of you
Because they sleep with a gun
And keep an eye on you, son
So they can watch all the things you do

Because the drugs never work
They're gonna give you a smirk
'Cause they got methods of keeping you clean
They're gonna rip up your heads
Your aspirations to shreds
Another cog in the murder machine

Chorus:
They said all
Teenagers scare
sponsored links
The living shit out of me
They could care less
As long as someone'll bleed
So darken your clothes
Or strike a violent pose
Maybe they'll leave you alone
But not me

The boys and girls in the clique
The awful names that they stick
You're never gonna fit in much, kid
But if you're troubled and hurt
What you got under your shirt
Will make them pay for the things that they did

*Chorus*

"Teenagers" is the fourth single and the eleventh track from My Chemical Romance's third studio album, The Black Parade. It is the third U.S. single from the album, but it is the fourth single released in the UK, the Philippines, Australia and Canada. This song is the band's eleventh overall single.

My Chemical Romance surprised many critics by the musical style of "Teenagers". It incorporates elements of pop rock, hard rock and 12 bar blues. This earned them mostly positive reviews from critics. A reviewer from NME Magazine wrote, "Some bands go out of their way to do a song with a sound they're never bound to do, then release it as a single. They usually fail. My Chemical Romance tried a substantially different sound for this song, and it paid off. The message is simple, the chorus is catchy and Ray Toro's solo joins the chorus and bridge together so smoothly." The song managed to grab 5 stars in both NME and AbsolutePunk.net as well as 4/5 from IMDb. From Wikipedia

Frickin Awesome ^^ | Reviewer: Elle | 8/13/13

I seriously love this song. True, not all teenagers do this, but i dont really get to express myself alot and whenever I'm super upset or mad ( 99.9% of the time) this song reminds me there are totally people who are as just as warped as me. And I'm not sure if their parents care as much as mine do about wearing arm bands, beanies, and black all the time, but I bet they're pretty fed up with people judging and would absolutely love to scream their heads off to this song like i seriously crave. But until then... I blast it from my MP3 and pretend like i can :) well done MCR ^^

THIS IS NOT A STERYOTYPICAL SONG | Reviewer: Chloe-Hannah | 1/29/12

I am a teenager. So therefore, according to most people, I must carry around a knife and beat people up. This is just one of the stupid, messed up stereotypes we have in our society.
I get dirty looks if I walk around in the rain with my hood up! I get even dirtier looks when I walk into my local corner shop and start looking at energy drinks!
Does this really seem right?
My Chemical Romance obviously had a strong reason for writing this song, I don't personally think it's to make teenagers look bad. I think it's to stop teenagers from making peoples ideas actually come true.
I mean, there's a message at the end of the music video telling teenagers that violence is NEVER the answer!
People used to say that MCR were encouraging teenagers to go out and do bad things to themselves and others, but obviously they were wrong!
In the society that we live in, people get stereotyped for being different. People get stereotyped for being unique, and this is just WRONG.
I'm not into all that Lady Gaga stuff that everyone else seems to be into, and therefore, that makes me a candidate for disgusting and offensive stereotypes!
If we were all the same, the world wouldn't work properly! I think people need to accept that, move on, and get rid of stereotypes.
MCR obviously want to get this message across, and so do I.
NO MORE STEREOTYPES AGAINST TEENAGERS!

uhh | Reviewer: iris | 11/30/11

This song is about the older generation not understanding teens, trying to box them up and tame them. It isn't meant to be for a specific group of people, like "emo"s (which, by the way, is derogatory and means "emotionaly unstable", so don't go bragging about being one), or "goth"s or, heck, Catholics.

This is obviously a topic MCR felt strongly about, and I respect them for that. As a teenager, I can thoroughly relate to this song, even though I don't fit a stereotype (and nor do my closest friends). I'm a self declared Christian, but by no means devout. I'm pretty optimistic but that doesn't mean emotion is alien to me. I'm a TEENAGER, but not a THUG. Above all, I am a human being. I think this is what the song is trying to say.

It's good music, not emo or goth music. Ffs.

ALSO, mature 11 year old reminds me of myself at that age, having a bipolar mother. Try not to lose yourself under a label that makes you feel stronger, just BE strong, as yourself. Childhood doesn't last forever. I'm close to moving out, going to university, getting away. The most important thing is to be true to yourself, and have faith in your own strength.

Realy? | Reviewer: Lauren | 10/24/11

Are you people going to seriously believe the post that summer made? That's retarded. Being a teenager doesn't mean you have to play the part. The person who posted about singing at 4 in the morning, well they didn't have to try. Natural born teenager right there. ;D I'm only 11, so i'm not quite there yet. But according to my mom, i've got the atittude for starters. I find pride in the fact my mom basically restricts me from everything, yet i can always twist her words and get my way. A little hobby i reccomend to people with abusive and unaccepting parents. Only good part of the abuse, is i can take some pretty hard punches because of my past with them. But my mom is more than dreading the second im a teenager. She's scared out of her mind. For one, i swore that i was going to play this song nonstop, the day i turn 13. I can, it'll be on a sunday. For two, my mom and i agreed i could go anywhere i wanted. Three, my mom told me when i was thirteen i could kiss my boyfriend in front of her. Not like i don't already kiss him, but you know how moms are. But hey, what could an abused, underhanded, emo kid want more than this? Well i would like my mom to accept i'm emo, but other than that i'm good. I'm not saying MCR is emo. That's the image, but they truly aren't. To look like one thing is different than to be it. Trust me there. I find plenty of emo look alikes who don't act emo.

Hmm... | Reviewer: Dave | 8/18/11

I'm not sure what to think about this song. On the one hand, it seems to contain well-crafted irony. On the other, "My Chemical Romance" are confirmed idiots. I'll assume they're just idiots, I think.

So Epic That... | Reviewer: Your Face | 8/1/11

I was singing this at 4:50 AM because this is totally me. I'm 15, and I'm just like that teenager. Then I said "...the living shit outta me..." and I woke my mother up. Woman doesn't like me cursing, so I guess I'm grounded. :P Great song to relate to, though. c=

Well... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/18/11

Oh? | Reviewer: IzzyPuff | 11/1/10

Which Ring the English or Japanese? (Really? People.)

Amusing song definitely points out the stupidity of a lot of teenagers and the ridiculous use of drugs and crap. It's amazing how low the human race has gone down. Ah and it's not just the younger generation, the adults aren't anymore.

And from the Catholic point of view, people sure fall to the inclination of sin pretty easily what with drugs, sex, and the satisfying of one self, and not caring of others, and are slowly going down in IQ. That's why we're bombarded with stupid comments.

World hater or just annoyed?

Well whatever, I'll just drown the world out in a notebook and with my headphones out.

Oh yeah I'm an otaku not a goth. Look it up.

This song seriously reminded me of the cast of Disgaea, and bunch of other demon manga.

kool | Reviewer: slipknot lover | 10/6/10

get over it | Reviewer: baybmother | 10/4/10

I am a young 47 y/o mother of a 15 y/o boy , I love this song and i love MCR! I dont consider myself EMO and I dont know why you have to put a classification on everything either! Sooooo if I like MCR I am EMO? EMO is a lifestyle not a type of music and if you saw me I really doubt you would call me EMO! I love all good types of rock and roll! I am punk at heart! However, MCR reminds me of a punked up version of Queen! love u MCR! excellent in concert too!

wtf? | Reviewer: crap | 6/29/10

I can't believe how many superstitious morons there are in the world. Oh yeah and if you don't repost this on three different pages you die. I'm dead and scary looking too by the way. Pretty shit song compared to the rest of the songs on the album in my honest opinion.
