A phrase used to remark on the stupidity of teen, especially high school drama. It is used as a means to put things in perspective, often uttered by an observer of a pointless, fruitless argument that has to do with some aspect of dating.

Etymology: The term was sued in a completely different context by the early 90's grunge band, Nirvana.
Girl 1: "I saw you with my boy at the movies, you whore!"
Girl 2: "He don't like busted girls, bitch. That's why he's on my team now."
Observer: "Damn. Smells like teen spirit..."

1. A brand of deodorant.

2. A song name based on the brand of deodorant. It may be a shitty song but you can deal with it and listen to it anyways because it's by NIRVANA.
"Hey, this homeless guy smells like teen spirit."
