Teenage Kicks

Snow Patrol performing a cover of "Teenage Kicks" at BBC Maida Vale Studios as part of their 75th anniversary in 2009. Snow Patrol plays The Orpheum Theatre on April 12.

The song may be most famous for being John Peel's favorite song. A lyric from the song is inscribed on his gravestone: "Teenage dreams, so hard to beat".

The studio may be most famous as the site of the Peel Sessions, which included such bands as Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Joy Division, Nirvana and The White Stripes.

The Raconteurs also did a rockin' version of the song in London, as a tribute to Peel, who was one of the earliest and biggest supporters of Jack White's previous band The White Stripes. The song starts at about 4:38 in the video below.

Below is the original by The Undertones
