  Smells Like Teen Spirit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The meaning, however, was that Kurt smelled like "Teen Spirit", the deodorant that Tobi Vail, Hanna's bandmate and Kurt's then-girlfriend, wore.
"Smells Like Teen Spirit" is in the musical key of F minor, and is based around a riff using four power chords (F-Bb-Ab-Db) played in a syncopated 16th note strum.
The "Smells Like Teen Spirit" single was released on September 10, 1991 as the lead single from Nevermind.

 "Smells Like Teen Spirit" - Salon
The first time I heard "Smells Like Teen Spirit," I was sitting in the passenger seat of a pickup truck in Tampa, Fla. It was the fall of 1991 and I was a washed-up baseball player who had just graduated from college.
The story of "Smells Like Teen Spirit," and the success that this five minutes and two seconds attained, is the story of rock 'n' roll: ugly and beautiful and triumphant and tragic.
Songs like "Blew," "School," "About a Girl," "Floyd the Barber," "Negative Creep" and a roaring cover of "Love Buzz" had a decidedly raw sound, a guttural collage of grunts and screams that every once in a while found middle ground in gorgeous melodies powered by Cobain's sugary, coarse vocals.

 Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana Songfacts
Vail wore Teen Spirit deodorant, and Hanna was implying that Cobain was marked with her scent.
Smells Like Teen Spirit changed the entire face of music, and Nirvana was and remains the last important rock band.
What i feel from the lyrics in Smells Like Teen Spirit and many other of his songs is that he isn't trying to make you see a big picture but feel an emotion through the sound of the words and his voice.

 "Smells Like Teen Spirit" - Salon
Grohl -- like Ringo Starr, the late addition to the band, but one you can't imagine missing -- hit the skins so hard they had to change them every couple of songs during those recording sessions.
His pounding in "Teen Spirit," as much as Cobain's overwhelming guitar, shove the song down the listener's throat.
"Teen Spirit," too, was one of those rare moments when a song was pulled from the air of a scene -- Seattle and its spreading ethos of youthful malaise and artistic meanderings -- and became greater than the sum of its parts.

"I did a tribute to Kurt Cobain with Teen Spirit and American Pie this night in Dublin because American Pie is what I heard over and over in my head the night he killed himself.
I played it to 2,500 kids; it started like a whisper, and then in perfect pitch, in perfect rhythm, very softly, they all sang American Pie with me. None of us in the crew had ever experienced anything like it....I felt like I knew him.
In Dublin, two days after the Nirvana front man’s 1994 suicide, her live version of Smells Like Teen Spirit was a choker.

Like driving, suborbital flight is no big deal to the adults at NASA and the Russian Space Agency, who mastered it a generation ago.
For the Baby Boom generation, efforts to re-create an Apollo program for the Moon or Mars are an attempt to regain their Camelot, that high school team-spirit feeling of solidarity, enthusiasm and purpose.
Those of us a bit younger felt that magical teen hormonal rush in the late 1990s, in the founding days and nights of the Mars Society and the Roton rollout.

 Rolling Stone : Smells Like Teen Spirit
Producer Butch Vig first heard "Smells Like Teen Spirit" in early 1991, on a boombox cassette recorded by bassist Krist Novoselic, drummer Dave Grohl and singer-guitarist-songwriter Kurt Cobain in a barn in Tacoma, Washington.
"Teen Spirit," named after a brand of deodorant for girls, was Cobain's attempt to "write the ultimate pop song," he said, using the soft-loud dynamic of his favorite band, the Pixies.
In 'Teen Spirit,' a lot of that vulnerability is in the tone of his voice."

And although "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is easily the band's finest radio hit, I don't doubt the fact there's a few hundred fanatics who'd rather hear "Even In His Youth" over and over and over instead of track one twice.
Teen Spirit was a teenage anthem with good reason, it had amazing sound, the supreme rocking riff, deep relatable lyrics, and passion.
Following Teen Spirit is another one of Nirvana's best works ever Even In His Youth.

 GetReligion: October 27, 2006
While some critics say the statistics are greatly exaggerated (one evangelical magazine for youth ministers dubbed it “the 4 percent panic attack”), there is widespread consensus among evangelical leaders that they risk losing their teenagers.
Among the leaders speaking at the meetings are Ted Haggard, president of the evangelical association; the Rev. Jerry Falwell; and nationally known preachers like Jack Hayford and Tommy Barnett.
She goes to great lengths to document just how ridiculous the 4 percent claim is. But she tries to get at the heart of the story by interviewing teens and others who seem to earnestly believe that Bible-believing Christians are threatened.

Described in 1975 by music magazine NME as "a toilet, an impossibly scuzzy little club" and by its own admission "a small, dirty, beer-soaked, dark pit", CBGBs nonetheless earned a reputation as sacred ground for the punk generation.
Its walls are caked with layer upon layer of flyers while its bathroom is a rock legend of its own and the line-ups who have graced the stage since it opened in late 1973 read like a punk rock hall of fame.
Credited with discovering Patti Smith and "The Godfathers of Punk", The Ramones, the club is facing a massive rent hike and owner Hilly Kristal says he can't afford the $65 000 (almost R500 000) a month the landlord is demanding.

Tobi Vail (‘Kurt smells like Teen Spirit’), a reference to a popular ladies' deodorant.
When Tobi eventually dumped him, he poured his rage into the lyrics, which widened in scope to become the perfect encapsulation of Generation X angst and ennui.

 Smells like teen spirit
The many adult characters in Spring Awakening are secondary, all portrayed by two actors, and their constant condescension drones like the “mwah, mwah” of Peanuts cartoons.
Perhaps if these teens had the freedom of driver’s licenses to look forward to, things would have ended less tragically for all of them.
‘Spring Awakening,’ is in essence, much like the part of life it portrays —problematic and frustrating, but crackling with energy and a sense that something new and wonderful might just be floating on the horizon.

Kathleen Hanna (of the band Bikini Kill) once wrote "Kurt smells like teen spirit" on one of Cobain's walls.
Kurt mistakenly thought Hanna was referring to the "teen revolution" people used to talk about in Olympia, so he took it as a compliment.
For the music video, Cobain was inspired by a 1979 film about the rebellious adventures of a group of teens called Over The Edge.
