All of Wheatus joins Phillip at the Wayne Music festival for a conversation and music outdoors

In This Episode

  • All of Wheatus sits outside and Phil still manages to make it work!
  • We hear about the idea of a “One-hit wonder” and what it means to the band
  • The members talk about getting involved over the band’s 20+ year history
  • A special acoustic performance of “Valentine” that happens to get a funky background bassline (you will have to check it out!)
  • The band name songs from their catalog to explore “More than a dirtbag“. Phillip dropped them into a Spotify playlist to check out!


Teenage years may be fleeting, but it seems ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ is for life, as Wheatus’ debut single popped up yet again in 2022, making itself known in a way never seen before in the form of a TikTok trend. The “Teenage Dirtbag photos” trend has now been embraced by nearly a million people.

They continue to spend as much time as possible on the road, both for headline shows and as a support act across North America. Wheatus have also made a triumphant return to festival stages, playing high profile events like Audacy Beach Fest, and will be playing Musikfest 2023 this summer on Fri Aug 11th at 9:30pm on the Americaplatz SteelStacks stage.

To date, the eclectic rock outfit has released six studio albums, two live albums, and multiple additional singles.
