Remember that smell....?

...the smell of teen spirit!

Would anybody like to share memories of the first time they listened to the Nirvana classic?


Personally, I hated it at first! Of course I was into a lot of pop at the time.. MJ's Dangerous and stuff. So really, I started appreciating Nirvana, Pearl Jam and the like only later on like the mid-90s. But oh man... when it did hit me, it just blew me away!




I found it hard... it's hard to find, oh well... whatever, nevermind!

It's a great song. One of the best from the 90's.

I heard it about five years ago. I decided to go outside afterward to make sense of what I heard.

And yes that does sound a bit cheesy/cliche, but it's the truth.

i remember hearing it that summer and going to like, 5 different music stores and no one had ever heard of it.

anyway, thus began my phase of flannel shirts, ripped jeans and doc martens.

I remember seeing it a lot on MTV at the time. My sister one day asked me if I liked them and for some reason I said, "yes". She acted like she was impressed, so I decided I should buy the album. I either bought it at K-Mart or ShopKO (nothing but high quality shopping in my home town!)

I listened to that album at least once a day for about a year and a half (at least that's how I remember it). I listened to it so much, and I really liked it. That being said, it's the only album of theirs I really like as a whole. Honestly, I personally felt like they were never as good as they were on this album (though they did have a few great moments after that). Unfortunately, I feel like they got a little more credit for things than they deserved just because of Kurt's tragic death. This opinion has kind of soured my opinions on them and their "influence" on music. That being said, I can still put that album in ever few years or so and really enjoy it.

I believe my first thought was, "A mosquito? My libido? The hell? I wonder what the real lyrics are..."

That song was in my head when I woke up this morning.

In fact I think I'll give that cd a spin right about now

When I first heard this song, all I heard was the glassy guitar in the verses. I remember wondering if it was the new U2 single. As 'Teen Spirit' hit a few weeks before "The Fly" came out. I had been waiting a LONG time for AB to come out, so I was desperate for new U2. So desperate that I initially confused Nirvana for U2. Which is pretty embarrassing since I was a freshman at the University of Washington in Seattle, at the time and had already heard of Nirvana before Nevermind came out.

The fall of 1991 is easily the best time of my life, musically speaking. I remember recording "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "The Fly" off the radio on my little cassette tape and repeating those over and over. Awww, the days before the Internet.

Exactly what I set out to achieve with this thread. Nostalgia for 1991/1992.
