4Ever Songs: Nirvana ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’

Smells Like Teen Spirit is THE Nirvana song. It’s the ultimate grunge anthem, the filler of a million indie club dancefloors.

Released as a single on 10 September 1991, the track was the trailer for the mammoth Nevermind album, released later that month. Smells Like Teen Spirit became a HUGE anthem and propelled this up and coming Seattle trio into the stratosphere. The song became the calling card for Generation X – a nihilistic, revolutionary call-to-arms that was… nothing of the sort.
