Bored Teenagers

Album: Punk Singles Collection (1977)

Songfacts®:

  • Written by guitarist Tim Smith, "Bored Teenagers" was released as the B Side of "Gary Gilmore's Eyes", and also found its way onto a live compilation album The Roxy London WC2 (Jan-Apr 77). A fair uptempo track, it is certainly in the spirit of the bored teenager, and not a bad complement for the rather more innovative A Side. >>
