Only a Lad is the full-length debut album by American new wave band Oingo Boingo, released in 1981, following their self-titled EP. The album's musical arrangements, by vocalist Danny Elfman and guitarist Steve Bartek, completed the group's evolution into a new wave rock band (see Oingo Boingo – The Mystic Knights Years)

Only a Lad is the full-length debut album by Oingo Boingo, released in 1981 following their self-titled EP. Contents. On the cover of the album, the drawing of a cat by Louis Wain that previously appeared on the cover of the Oingo Boingo EP is visible on the shirt of the scout

Only a Lad introduced the world to a man who would later become one of its most recognizable popular composers. Danny Elfman, later to write the score for The Simpsons as well as countless movie soundtracks, formed Oingo Boingo in 1977, but it wasn't until Only a Lad's 1981 release that they achieved national recognition. Only a Lad contains obvious new wave elements, but it doesn't stick to any one style long, undulating over a vast musical terrain. Ska, new wave, classical, heavy metal - they all make at least cameo appearances.

Johnny was bad, even as a child Everybody could tell Everyone said, "If you don't get straight, you'll surely go to hell". But Johnny didn't care He was an outlaw by the time that he was ten years old He didn't wanna do what he was told Just a prankster, a juvenile gangster. His teachers didn't understand They kicked him out of school At a tender early age Just because he didn't want to learn things Had other interests He liked to burn things
