What do you get from the lyrics? I always thought it was kind of bleak, that they are so disillusioned with the current state they are just going to do whatever they do. Or am I wrong?

You're aware, I assume, that the song's working title was "J Masicis For President"?

Ah, that'll be because I got my facts very slightly wrong:

"...the song's working title was "Rock And Roll For President"; the song was supposedly written about a fantasy world where J Mascis is president."



"Its (DDN's) opening track, Teen Age Riot, is a manifesto for the slackerdom that would reach its apotheosis with grunge's apathetic shoulder-shrug. Written as a tribute to J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr (who, along with Pixies and Sonic Youth, helped create the atmosphere that made Nirvana's success possible), it starts off with beautiful washes of guitar, before jump-starting with the most immediate riff the band had even written. It imagines a world in which Mascis, who comes "running in on platform shoes, with Marshall stacks, to at least just give us a clue", is the president. Hoping for a revolution - "it takes a teenage riot to get me out of bed right now" sang Moore - it was, in the end, instrumental in creating one."
