Smells Like Teen Spirit
Get it on
I love this song. Nirvana is one of my favourite bands ever! I really miss Kurt Cobain
Best song ever, we can smell his spirit, laugh out loud (i didn't understand. The best songs smell like going for the best. I love nirvana. NiRVANA NIRVANA NIRVANA! BEST SONG EVER ANYONE CAN LISTEN TO. Nirvana is part of rock's history, and deserves to be remembered from generation to generation. T smells like a perfect made delicious song that deserves to be in this list. Kurt was such a genius. This song has so much between the lines, it's awesome. I will always love NIRVANA. First time I voted another song.. The song is nice... But after listening this song I have changed by decision...
This song makes me want to run naked down the street... And I don't run Naked for just any song. It's like waking up in Russia lying on a moose rug.
Kurt Cobain has a unique voice and talent to make music in his way because Smells Like Teen Spirit is not like other songs in this list -"comercial"- he just put in this what he feel, and maybe he wasn't happy with the succes that this song had but we must face:"this song really rocks"...
Before hearing this song, I was a idiot, dumb, not cool etc. After hearing this song I felt like my past boring myself is dead forever... A new born of myself... Cool, intelligent, smart etc.. In one worn this song changed my life... My everything... Since then it's my favorite song... And all ways will be... No song can beat this one... In past, present or future. The lyrics, music, drum beat, bass and of course the guitar solo it's just amazing! It was released in 1991, now it's 21 century... And it's still sounds like new. Every time I hear this song, I learn something new... I remember I heard this song 20 times a day... Can't stop listening again and again. Kurt cobain was really a genius... Thank you kurt for this all time best song and all time best album NEVERMIND!
One of the greatest songs ever written... , not because of the nonsensical lyrics but simply because this song alone changed the world of music forever and without songs like this today our music would be much different.. I love the song and its one of my bands specialties, also I'm gonna throw in that kurt kobain was, to some people, including me, a very, very inspiring songwriter and a musical genius R.I. P
I wouldn't say that Smells like teen spirit is great in the sense of it's very understandable lyrics, or even its powerful and heavy riffs. I'd say this song is one of the greatest because it changed a musical generation permanently, bringing rock/grunge/punk back into the mainstream and because of this, has had an immense effect on all mainstream music since.
Load up the guns and bring your friends
its fun to lose and to pretend
she is overbored and self assured
on no, I know a dirty word
hello hello hello how low?
hello hello hello how low?
hello hello hello how low?
please vote for smells like teen spirit of nirvana.
i can surely say its best song ever.
if kurt cobain would have been alive, I m sure he would have made nirvana best band ever.
R I P kurt cobain respect...
not sure it's even the best nirvana song, as I love lithium as well, but for it's mainstream appeal, its cultural significance and just pure power combined with melody and amazing unique vocals by Kurt, it's one hell of a song, and probably deserves to be number one overall on this list
Best song I have ever heard. NIRVANA is the greatest band ever. Every time I hear this song it gives me awesome feeling. Lyrics is perfect, music is excellent. Its simply the best. Best alternative song ever.. I'll listen to this song daily till the end of my life.
This is the song that defined an era, turned most of a nations teens more punk, and was responsible for the death of it's creator. Despite the fact that the lyrics are so deep that they can't be understood fully, it was the most impactful song of its time. Once listening to it once, kurt cobains screams are cemented into your mind.
This is the stuff I grew up on, seriously. I grew up on trying to figure out what the eff he was saying half the time, and just enjoying the music.
If you've ever seen the footage from SNL, I love how Krist Novoselic bounces around while playing the bass.
This song is amazing.. THe music is over the top and the lyrics make you wanna run a marathon...
This is pure genius- it should be number 1..
This is the best the rock world has had to offer, the singing and the scream, they're both just incredible...
This song is an "end of an era" song. We all listened it hundreds of times and enjoyed it each time as well as the first time we heard it on the radio. Such music is not being created anymore. They just can't do it another Nirvana song. Full of emotions accompanied by loud music is the best thing you can get in this life.R.I. P Kurt.
Nirvana themselves said they hated playing this song, it isn't really one of their quality songs; they made it to get some mainstream attention. They hated playing it during concerts, and I don't blame them because it doesn't really capture the true sound that Kurt and the rest of the band was trying to present. A good song, but shouldn't be on this list.
I feel sad for people who judge this epic song technically that is it only has 4 chords n stuff,
Most addictive song ever
Try listening fade to black by mettalica great intro and solo but you would listen it for week atmost & then just the intro & you will change it but "teen spirit" you can listen for eternity
I got addicted to it every time I heard it after a gap & also should mention that though I loved fade to black but now can't go through with it
" SLTS" is a evergreen song
Please vote for it & make it a #1 song
For sure, a great music, simple, and perfect
Has a powerful intro, and, excellent Lyrics, Cobain is a Genius, he know how to make a song, and, Nirvana, revolutionized the Rock, with a proposal for a song shortly worked, with pointless letters, but that makes the listener freak. Great
This is the oldest song I like, apart from ABBA. I think the sound, the sound, the energy, etc, are so awesome it's hard to believe it's a song from 1991! I Love it and it must always come with me! People, if you don't think this is the best song ever is because your musical taste is a real crap!
This list is obviously made up of deaf people. Are you kidding me? The only good thing about nirvana is that their not around any more. The bad thing is that kurt didn't kill himself 6 years earlier so we didn't have to be exposed to his WAH WAH, I'm not happy BS. BURN IN HELL DOUSHBAG!
Every person I play this to likes it even people who hate rock best song I have ever heard. And I still here it every where.
The title really says it all; I've never heard a song that has inspired in me such strong feelings of angst, aggression, and sadness. I think the fact that the singer blew his brains out further validates the emotional aspect of the song; the feelings are legitimate. This isn't some fake crap.
This song brings best of the rock that will entertain not only our generation but the generations to come. SIMPLY ADORE NIRVANA FOR GIVING US NOTHING BUT PURE MUSIC. I wish he lived for few more years as I am addicted to his music and want more and more of it.
I don't know good words to say what I feel when I'm hearing this song. When I saw it here I don't think about other songs, I just vote on it! Nirvana songs were awesome, what more can I say, Kurt definitely had GIFT FROM GOD!
This Song Refresh The Meaning Of The Rock And Roll on 90s! And Nirvana Is the King Of Rock Music On the History There Legend! This Song Also Gives Me Energy, So people Vote Smells Like Teen Spirit-Nirvana!
For years, I have grown up listening to this tune, never fully realising what song it was, and it was complete coincidence that I decided to come onto this page today, and I am so glad that I did, the top 10 really deserve to the top 10.
