Hailing from a city more popular because the birthplace of rock and roll & move, Nashville’s Teen Idols — never to become puzzled with the early-’80s D.C. hardcore music group — experienced some severe angst against nation music. Sick and tired of their redneck environment and “hee-haw” environment, Keith (vocals), Phillip (acoustic guitar/vocals), Heather (bass), and Matt (drums) met up making use of their Ramones information and leather overcoats to create the Teenager Idols as their very own method of flipping the parrot on the Grand Ole Opera. Merging ’50s rock and roll & move attitude and snotty pop-punk got them some interest from Honest Don’s Information, which would down the road discharge their debut in 1997. Pursuing some large touring along with a nomination for Greatest Nashville Independent Musician in 1998, their sophomore record, Pucker Up, premiered in 1999, accompanied by a divide EP with Japan’s Pass on. Full Leather Coat followed a season afterwards. In 2003, the Idols released both Dysfunctional Shadowman EP as well as the full-length Nothing at all to Prove (through Asian Guy and Fueled by Ramen, respectively).
