DOWNLOAD: The Teenagers - Homecoming (sluttt 98% Done Remix) (MP3)

The TeenagersThe TeenagersThe Teenagers

The Teenagers are three French dudes from Paris that sing “I fucked my American cunt,” in this popular single, “Homecoming.” Some American girls find the word cunt rude, but for the hundreds of skinny jean wearing girls that fill The Teenagers’ shows, they’ll ignore the word and wait for a French invasion.

Penetrating America are The Teenagers, kicking off their first American tour and cutting the challenges that most bands face in the beginning of their careers. “We didn’t have to go through the shitty van and touring the entire country phase. Thanks, MySpace!” says Michael Szpiner, 26, who used to be a graphic designer before doing the pop star thing. [Format]

The Teenagers make their way to NYC on January 30 for one show at Mercury Lounge, another @ Hiro Ballroom (with Blacklist), a stop in Philly, and then a show at Studio B (the Hot Chip afterparty). The Scarlett Johansson video, and all tour dates, below....
