It is said that Kurt Cobain (1967-1994) grew to hate this song and did not wish to play it live. ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ is seen as a teenage song of rebellion, but Cobain always stated that he was no voice of the people.
Kathleen Hanna, the lead singer of a band called ‘Bikini Kill’ spray painted ‘Kurt Smells Like Teen Spirit’ on Cobain’s bedroom wall after they had both been out drinking. ‘Teen Spirit’ was a deodorant often worn by Cobain’s then girlfriend Tobi Vail. Cobain thought those words would make a great song title.
The songs lyrics were not printed when first released on the bands second studio Album ‘Nevermind’ (see also best songs 788,) and because of the difficulty of trying to hear what Cobain was singing, this only added to the speculation of what the song is really about.
Even with the lyrics in front of you, ten different people could come up with ten different meanings. I personally think the core element of the song is about Cobain’s Heroin addiction, he knows he is harming himself, and his band but he can’t help himself.
‘With the lights out it’s less dangerous, here we are now entertain us.’
