Throwback Thursday: “Smells Like Teen Spirit”

Written by on November 6, 2014

During this week 23 years ago, Nirvana released their 2nd album-Nevermind. The band consisted of: Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl, and Krist Novoselic. Cobain came up with the name for the album as “a metaphor for his attitude on life” and for its grammatical inaccuracy. Expectations were relatively low for the band but they surpassed these when the album was certified Gold and Platinum in the USA in 1991, and Diamond in 1999. It became their first number one album, bumping Michael Jackson off the top of the Billboard charts. Nevermind helped in bringing alternative rock to mainstream audiences and is listed numerously on different charts as one of the best albums of all time. Here is their most famous song: Smells Like Teen Spirit
