"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. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was Nirvana's biggest hit in most countries, placing high on B-side: "Drain You", "Even in His Youth", "Aneurysm".
OK, so they may not be the best cover artists, but it's hard not to crack a smile at merely the idea of The Muppets Barbershop Quartet tackling '90s anthem "Smells Like Teen Spirit," or Camilla and the Chickens clucking their way through Cee-Lo's "Forget You.".
Frequently cited as one of the most important songs in the history of rock music, Nirvana's 1991 single "Smells Like Teen Spirit" almost single handedly popularized alternative rock and simultaneously brought the era of hair metal and pop metal to an end.
