Wheatus Share ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ Cover Played by Fans

Clint Drieberg

What happens when you have a whole heap of Wheatus fans, in Quarantine and looking for something to do?

Result, “Quaranteenage Dirtbag”

Wheatus themselves were behind the making of this and the band released the video on their website last night. It includes dozens of fans performing the song, playing everything from flutes, guitars, cellos, drums, violins, shakers, even the kitchen sink!

“We received submissions from 106 contributors, across 16 countries,” the cover’s description reads. “Thank you to everyone who shared their time and talents with us.”

“Quaranteenage Dirtbag” arrives on the heels Wheatus’ own remaking of “Teenage Dirtbag,” which was released earlier this month.

Frontman Brendan Brown spent the past year or so painstakingly recreating Wheatus’ self-titled 2000 debut album because he no longer has the record’s master recordings.
