By now you may be familiar with “Ohio.” The new song, “Teenage Rockstars,” is similarly nostalgic, but instead of tackling an early cross-country move, it dives into Andrew’s music career. The song describes his beginnings with Something Corporate, a punk rock band that made a huge impact in its all-too-brief run. The title suggests a rocking banger, so it’s surprising to discover that it’s actually a reminiscent ballad.
Its music video truly brings the lyrics to life. It knits together footage spanning Andrew McMahon’s time in Something Corporate and into his Jack’s Mannequin days. See the return of his eyebrow piercing and the fluffy blonde hair-do he once sported. See him onstage with Josh Partington, Kevin “Clutch Page, Brian Ireland, and Bobby “Raw” Anderson. Nostalgic feels all the way around!
