Smells Like Teen Spirit


"Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana is a grunge rock anthem released in 1991. The song is in the key of F minor and was written by Kurt Cobain, the band's lead singer and guitarist. It became a massive hit, marking a defining moment in the grunge movement of the early 90s. The lyrics have been widely interpreted, but generally reflect themes of teenage angst and rebellion. Interestingly, the melody of the song was inspired by another track, specifically "More Than a Feeling" by Boston.
