While everyone is rounding up their favorite everythings of the decade, Patrick Carney, the drummer for The Black Keys, decided to call out an album he found particularly meaningful. On Wednesday, December 18, the musician decided to highlight Farrah Abraham‘s 2012 record, My Teenage Dream Ended. Sharing a screenshot of his Spotify page as he listened to the first track, “The Phone Call That Changed My Life,” he praised the work as “trendsetting.”
“The time has arrived. My absolute favorite album of the decade. My no. 1. An album that shouldn’t surprise you much … It’s of course My Teenage Dream Ended by Farrah Abraham. A trendsetting album at the forefront of the auto-tune movement. If you are looking for 27:30 minutes of pop that really delivers the goods, please look no further. Let’s hope next decade is as fruitful as the 2010s were. ❤️”

The time has arrived. My absolute favorite album of the decade. My number one. An album that shouldn’t surprise you much… it’s of course “my teenage dream ended” by Farrah Abraham. A trend setting album at the forefront of the auto tune movement. If you are looking for 27:30 minutes of pop that really delivers the goods please look no further. Let’s hope next decade is as fruitful as the 2010’s were. ❤️
In the comments, fans and friends were quick to jump in on the gag. “Patrick, this has been the only list that matters, and thank you for it. However, Paris Hilton‘s ‘I Need You’ from 2018 is a legit bop,” responded TV writer Jake Fogelnest. “I can’t believe my wedding song is at the top of your list!” teased another Instagram user. Even singer Michelle Branch, who tied the knot with the drummer earlier this year, commented to add, “#teenmom.”
The album was one of many the musician has been ranking over the past week. On December 11, Patrick, 39, let his followers know he’d “share some of [his] favorite albums from the last ten years” as we “get closer to the end of the decade.” The rest of his list was rounded out by artists like Train, Steven Seagal, Jeremy Renner, will.i.am, John Daly, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Kathie Lee Gifford, Brad Paisley, LL Cool J and Brooke Hogan. Eking out the spot just ahead of Farrah — no. 0, if you will — was Corey Feldman for Angelic 2 the Core.
Farrah, 28, seemingly hasn’t acknowledged the honor on social media. However, over the years, she has reminded fans to listen in. “Sophia [Abraham] & I are singing in the car to My Teenage Dream Ended soundtrack,” she tweeted in August 2016. “Guess what her favorite [is]? LOL.” Two years later, she reminded her fans to tune in once more. “Check out my album My Teenage Dream Ended that started it all!” she added in March 2018. “Distributed live on iTunes!” Well, we know what we’ll be listening to for the last few weeks of the year.
