They met during social interaction in Algebra class.
She was expressionless at first, but then "smiled" to indicate submission.
He rearranged his facial features to appear "friendly."
After determining that their popularity status was comparable,
they decided that a "relationship" would be mutually beneficial.
They were careful to be seen together
at the local fast-food franchises.
He had a stylized speech pattern.
She used all the newest slang.
When they talked on the telephone,
they had troubled generating conversation stimulus.
They programmed "arguments" into their "relationship"
to make their lives seem "meaningful."
They could act "really mad" or "happy" or even "sad"
according to the current pre-fabricated social circumstances.
He had programmed his "personality"
to conform to adolescent trends.
She had synthesized her "emotions"
based on accepted teen sex-role characteristics.
They had copied all aspects of their behavior
from what they had observed in society.
Ego complex, insecurity syndrome
Oo yeah, they were really "goin' gud."
They were killed in an auto wreck as they were driving to and fro.
After drinking two beers, he was pretending to be "drunk."
While the local popular radio station
played the newest pre-designated, youth-oriented "top-forty hit,"
he was decapitated in an explosion of flames and glass fragments.
Her body was found crushed into the dashboard.
A mini-cam report described them as "fine youngsters."
They never got a chance to fulfill their "career dreams."
They were killed in an auto wreck as they were driving to and fro.
After drinking two beers, he was pretending to be "drunk."
While the local popular radio station
played the newest pre-designated, youth-oriented "top-forty hit,"
he was decapitated in an explosion of flames and glass fragments.
Her body was found crushed into the dashboard.
A mini-cam report described them as "fine youngsters."
They never got a chance to fulfill their "career dreams."

    Link(s)LOL I never expected to see it here either.

    youtube.com/…

    Copied from (myspace.com/…)

    Their first release was a 7". "Teen Love," which covered the entirety of side B at 33 RPM, actually became a college hit. One of the most interesting songs ever written, it pairs a pensive, slightly melancholy melody with No Trend's definitive statement of their view of society: A teen couple are reduced to robotic machines, slaves to current trends and societal expectations, their humanity gutted by the emotionless vocal.

    General CommentI remember listing to this song almost 30 years ago I recorded it on a cassette recorder but never got the name of the song or group it was like a wow moment when I heard the 1st 10 seconds of it. Of course cassette finally crapped out about 29.5 years ago. I would play it it my head from time to time until today when out of no where it popped up in my head again. I did a lyric search and found it in 5 seconds awesome going back in time. Great song
