Nirvana's Smash Single "Smells Like Teen Spirit" Turns 25 Years Old

The surprise 1991 hit from the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Famers took the country by storm, gale, cyclone, and hurricane when the song was released on September 10, 1991, amidst the rise of generation X. A Cobain admitted Pixies rip-off, Smells Like Teen Spirit is an oscillating track, with pleasant melodies in the verses and loud, brash, and hard riffs drums fills, and Cobain's trademark gruff voice leading the charge. The opening number from Nirvana's classic sophomore album, Nevermind is a classic itself, being covered relentlessly in the years since its arrival and being included in conversations about the best songs of the Grunge era, the 1990s and of all time.
