Teenage Head is the third studio album by the American rock band Flamin' Groovies, released in March 1971 by Kama Sutra Records.[4]

Released the same year as the Rolling Stones' classic album Sticky Fingers, Mick Jagger reportedly noticed the similarities between the albums and thought the Flamin' Groovies did the better take on the theme of classic blues and rock 'n roll revisited in a modern context.[2]
