"Teenage Crime" is a song performed by Swedish dance music producer and DJ Adrian Lux, released on 11 June 2010. The song features guest vocals by Linnéa Martinsson[1] of Lune (sv) and was placed at number six on the Triple J Hottest 100, 2010.[2]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Tobias Hansson in Stockholm, Sweden.[3] It depicts a story about a middle-aged mother who cannot hide from her past by leaving her family in the night as a modern-day cougar catching young hipster boys at a partying nightclub to spend and make out with.[4][5]

Cultural Impact[edit]

The "Axwell & Henrik B Remode" of the song was included on Swedish House Mafia's debut album Until One in 2010.[6]

Greenpeace have used the song in an advertisement[7] targeting Coca-Cola for its stance against Container deposit legislation in Australia. This ad was banned by the Nine Network and has since become popular on YouTube.
