Nirvana song that symbolizes grunge and, more than any other song, defines 90's music. My personal opinion is that the guitar riff is pretty good, but if you take a look at the lyrics, they are pretty random. The point of the song isn't really the lyrics, though. This is more about the guitars and practicing the style of grunge, which is more apparent in the music video. What it looks like is a stripped-down performance with excited teens in a sweaty gym.
With the lights out/ it's less dangerous/ Here we are now/
Entertain us/ I feel stupid/ and contagious/ Here we are now
Entertain us/ A mulatto/ An albino/ A mosquito/ My Libido/ Yeah
How much more random can you get? Smells Like Teen Spirit isn't really about anything. The title comes (indirectly) from deodorant. Maybe that's what the sweaty fans need when they're jumping around in the poorly ventilated gym. Hey, just a guess.
