In the same interview, regarding the possible reasons for its continued success, Brown recalled his father's words: "Every teenager has to go through that 'being an outsider' thing, at least a little bit.
So that story is still the same for people, even if it's thirty years after I went through it.
The song's vocals are all performed by Brown, including the segment in a high-pitched falsetto voice meant to emulate a female singer. Ayhan Sahin of Billboard magazine reviewed the song favorably, calling it a "gritty, on-the-edge track" and saying that its "keen melody, inventive production, and cool lyric about those who have felt like underlings during high school will entice listeners who prefer hanging out behind the gym with a smoke to Latin club.

It spent four weeks at one in Australia and also topped the charts in Austria and Flanders. In Marchthe song returned to the UK Singles Chart at 43 and climbed to 35 the following week,  nearly 11 years after its initial release. Radio edits usually omitted the word "dick" or edit it so that it sounds like the less offensive "prick", but most modern versions of the song have the words "gun to school" covered by scratching sounds.
When asked why "gun" is frequently censored, Brown stated that it is because the day he presented the song to the band's record label was around the time of the first anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre. The music video for "Teenage Dirtbag" is based on the film Loserwhich the song features in, and tells a different story from the film based on the song's lyrics. Jason Biggs plays a nerdy character and Mena Suvari is the love interest who unexpectedly invites the protagonist to an Iron Maiden concert, and in the end scene they dance together on prom night.

He then wakes up, revealing his brief romance with Suvari to have been all a dream. For the film, see Teenage Dirtbag film. Pop rock  alternative pop . Mainstream rock active rock radio.
