The Top 10 Courteeners Songs


2. Not Nineteen Forever // St Jude (2008)

‘Not Nineteen Forever’ documents the struggles of being a teenager alongside an infectiously jangly riff, making for a seriously big tune. There’s a degree of hindsight to the track which seems to warn against the antics of youth with the final line “it’s not big, you’re definitely not clever”.

Overall, the track serves as a warning that your teenage years don’t last forever and at some point the time will come where you have to “pull yourself together” and get on with life like the rest of us. That said the catchiness and frantic melody provides nineteen year olds everywhere with one last chance to go truly mental, and for that we’re incredibly grateful to the Courteeners.
