With their 1991 hit, “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Nirvana took the raw, authenticity of their Seattle grunge peers, and merged it with phenomenal melodic writing and performance. In doing so, the band changed the course of rock and roll history. “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was released on September 10, 1991, as the lead single from the band’s second album, Nevermind. The album followed two weeks later. One week before the album was even released, Nirvana was scheduled to play a performance at the Beehive Record Store in Seattle. They arrived to an overflowing, sold out crowd that swarmed them, forcing them to escape to the tavern across the street while teenage fans (who weren’t allowed into the over-21 tavern) snapped pictures of them through the window. When they finally made it to the store to begin their performance, it was clear that everyone already knew the song and were fully aware that they were witnessing rock history in the making. “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was an instant success on the college radio circuit, but it also became the unexpected crossover hit that took Grunge mainstream. A couple months after its release, on November 22, the song hit number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart – the same week that the Nevermind album hit number 1. It also hit number 7 in the UK, staying in the charts for 184 weeks! “Smells Like Teen Spirit” has remained an iconic track in the history of rock, even inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s list of “Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll” in 1997 – only 6 years after its release! MTV and Rolling Stone listed it number 3 on their list of the 100 Greatest Pop Songs, and NME named in number 2 on their 100 Greatest Singles of All Time. Rolling Stone’s 2004 list of the 500 Greatest Rock Songs of All Time named “Smells Like Teen Spirit” number 9. It has been credited with transforming the 90s rock landscape, which had previously been dominated by hair bands and polished pop. It ushered in a new sound for rock and roll. A sound which was both revolutionary, and yet somehow still apathetic – paralleling the band’s signature contradictory sensibilities in their sound and songwriting. ❤️My Favorite Plugins:
