What was the song (or songs) of your formative years? What was your teenage anthem?

The song, or songs if plural, need not be from the same time period as your teen years, although for many of us, they were / are.

I will start off--the song of my formative years was this one. I actually *had* a conversation with my parents not unlike the protagonist of the song.

It is also hard to believe the song is over 30 years old now, but it was my teen anthem!

    I like Suicidal Tendencies :)

    For me, I think it has to be Therapy? The Troublegum album, but specifically Screamager
