My Chemical Romance; Teenagers sounds familiar.

The song in question.

The tune seems very familiar to me. Any ideas what i’m half-remembering?

That sounds really familiar to me, too. After a google search, I listened to this clip of Whitesnake’s ‘Steal Away’, and it sounds a lot like the MCR song.
But I don’t remember having heard ‘Steal Away’ before, so I wonder if somebody else lifted the tune as well…?

It’s a pretty standard blues shuffle and the melody probably bears a resemblance to dozens of 1970s blues and glam rock tunes.

I immediately thought of Bang A Gong by T-Rex, but I think there’s an even closer resemblance to I Hear You Knockin’ by Dave Edmunds.

Edited to add: Yeah, that Whitesnake clip bears an uncanny similarity.

I can’t quite place it. It reminds me a bit of an Offspring song.

This is kind of a stretch, but after watching the linked video I was humming the tune but the lyrics that I kept thinking of were from “You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morisette. Compare the second verse of “Teenagers”

Because the drugs never work/They’re gonna give you a smirk/'Cause they got methods of keeping you clean
They’re gonna rip up your heads,/Your aspirations to shreds/Another cog in the murder machine


Did you forget about me/Mr. Duplicity/I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner
It was a slap in the face/How quickly I was replaced/Are you thinking of me when you f— her?

(lyrics from

Dunno if this helps.

Sounds a lot like “Keep your Hands to Yourself” by the Georgia Satellites to me.
They really need to be paying somebody some royalties for that.

On second look, it’s definitely “Steal Away”. Wow.
