Like Numbah, I prefer Weird Al's version. He's right when he says the song doesn't age well, and I feel this is common w/Nirvana's catalog in general. The only thing that I thought was decent was their 'Unplugged' album.

It was the song that threw Nirvana into the limelight. It isn't my favorite song of theirs, but it's one that you will always think of when you hear Nirvana.

I still think Kurt is rolling over his grave hearing that Miley Cirus sings it at her concerts....

Its aging pretty poorly. I'll take the Weird Al parody over the original, personally.

Anyone here notice that if you slow down the opening riff it's just like Boston's " More than A Feeling?"

ok, nirvana wasn't the most musically inclined band of the 90's, or really just in general, but you have to give it to them, they started a GENRE of music, aka the grunge era! I was 7 when I bought "nevermind" which started my interest in music...This song should be no less than #1, this song IS the 90's, period...

I thought it was the worst rock song I ever heard the first few times. I've mellowed a little and don't turn off the radio for this song anymore.

This song is the 90's. peroid.!! If you don't think so your out of your mind. All original, all genius, chorus might not make senses at some times but it doesn't matter. NIRVANA'S Smells like Teen Spirit will live on far beyond even our time
