Listen: Amy Shark covers ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ by Wheatus

A Wheatus cover with a Pixies twist

“Adore” singer Amy Shark has just released a cover of “Teenage Dirtbag” by Wheatus for the Spotify Singles series.

Her cover is stripped back and she adds a bit of a Pixies style twist, and includes a peculiarly lovable Hawaiian style guitar riff. Shark also spoke on the Under Cover podcast to explain the inspiration for her cover choice.

“The first time I heard ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ by Wheatus, I was in high school and I was crazy obsessed with it … it was in my head all day, every day,” Shark explained. “If I was going to have a theme song [at the time] it was that song.”
