“Smells Like Teen Spirit” is a song by American rock band Nirvana. It is the opening track and lead single from the band’s second album, Nevermind (1991), released on DGC Records. The unexpected success of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” in late 1991 propelled ‘Nevermind’ to the top of the charts at the start of 1992, an event often marked as the point where alternative rock entered the mainstream. It was Nirvana’s biggest hit, reaching number six on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Smells Like Teen Spirit” received many critical plaudits, including topping the Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics’ poll and winning two MTV Video Music Awards for its music video, which was in heavy rotation on music television. In the years since Cobain’s death, listeners and critics have continued to praise “Smells Like Teen Spirit” as one of the greatest songs in the history of rock music.
