The Kids was a Norwegian band from Trondheim founded in 1979, not to be confused with the eponymous Belgian punk rock band. Their most familiar hit was Forelska i lærer'n (translated to "In love with the teacher"), in 1980. Norske jenter ("Norwegian girls") was another hit; the band released music in Sweden with Swedish language versions of the songs.

The Kids became known for their platinum blonde hair, and were the first in Norway to produce a music video.[citation needed] The video was aired by the program Zikk Zakk, the only rock music program on NRK; the Kids sold to platinum. After the band broke up, Dag Ingebrigtsen took part in the founding of TNT. Meanwhile, Torstein Flakne founded Stage Dolls. In 1996 they had a reunion tour in Norway, and released the "Greatest Hits" on CD.
