I second the notion i like about a girl better and other good songs are deppressed,polly,and come as you are. Flag Rick23 on March 01, Excatly MAN!!!! Flag whokilledbob on March 12, No, actually it is "A Denial" But yes, i agree with WhoKilledBob, there are atleast 3 different recorded versions, lyric-wise, that is. P Flag kurt4ever on October 03, I think this song is overrated. I mean, it's good. But, frankly, it disgusts me how this is really the only song a lot of people know him for.
He was better than this. I third that. Still an awesome song. Flag Metallica4Dead Im Tired Of Hiding - Millie Jackson - Caught Up March 07, I agree. Most Nirvana songs are better than this major hit. The melody of this song is not Nirvanas anyway.
But I would place about a girl as the worst song, at least it is the worst Nirvana song to play on the guitar cos it is to simple and you get bored of The Truths Outside My Door - The Marvelettes - In Full Bloom. But the lyrics is far from the worst.
Flag algerial1 on May 12, Whether or Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana - The Best Of this song is their greatest is debatable, but it was definitely the most influential. This single song completely revolutionized the music scene in the nineties. The other songs you mention are great, but they're not as good because they didn't resonate with popular culture the way this one did. You think that doesn't Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana - The Best Of for anything but it does! Flag modulo on March 08, Or you know you're right Flag raghdasnowfall on February 12, General Comment i think this song is about fitting in in school, and what kurt thought about it, see,where it says "Load up on guns bring your friends It's fun to lose and to pretend She's over bored and self assured Oh no, I know a dirty word" he's talking about all the crazy thing's kids do to fit in with the rest of society which is why i am anti-government and anti-society Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana - The Best Of Comment I don't understand why some of you argue over whether this is the best or the worst song.
The great thing about this SongMeanings website is that people have the chance to speak intelligently and emotionally about music, but its hard Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana - The Best Of understand that the people who post comments don't realize that what is important isn't how great a song is in general, but what it means to you. Personally, I find the sex interpretation to be a stretch. Yes, "how low" might refer to a blow job, and alternatively it could refer to a low between taking heroin.
But it has so many possible meanings -- depression, for example. And since "hello" comes before it, you could even take it to mean the depression, emptiness and ugliness inherent in a teen world where teens are forced to be polite to the older generation, even though they don't want to -- when teens are forced to be something they're not. I think, in general, this song is just about teen life.
MrSkaPunk is probably right; Kurt didn't put much effort into the meaning of the lyrics, but what he wrote down can nonetheless be analyzed. And I think that its best taken as a multitude of emotions, actions, diversity mulatto, albinoacceptance, rejection, and the ups and downs of teen life.
My Interpretation Load up on guns, bring your friends It's fun to lose and to pretend She's over-bored and self-assured Oh no, I know a dirty word Guns are a metaphor for defense mechanisms. He is saying bring your shields, bring your armor, come with your friends.
Think of "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" by Dylan. For him it was fun to be the opposite of what he felt to be oppressive: jocks, school, authority, conformity. There was a satisfaction in being a "loser," and "pretending. Overboard, over-bored, selfish, self-assured.
I feel shame, and also exileration, but it's still a dirty word. Hello, hello, hello, how low Hello, hello, hello, how low Hello, hello, hello, how low Hello, hello, hello building the charge, building the charge.
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, hey with the lights out Then comes the resentment.
I feel Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana - The Best Of and. Those feelings and experiences in high school. You remember them? If you don't believe me, think back to your high school life. How much of who you took yourself to be are you reenacting Bat Macumba - Various - The Number 1 Brazilian Album Great imagery. Together they empower someone who is different, someone who doesn't fit in.
What he does best is nonconformity, which is worse in the eyes who want him to conform. This is a blessing, of a kind, for your opinion of me is evidence of my authenticity.

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 A denial, a denial, a denial, a denial, a denial A denial, a denial, a denial, a denial Please, for the love of God, validate my experience.
Everything that Kurt ever wrote was about shame, rejection, mood swings, abandonment and self hatred. He suffered immensely, which is why he chose heroin over life.
But there is another way, though it may not feel like it now. You may justify it now. Your life may feel Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana - The Best Of now, like Kurt felt his life was. But this is an illusion. How you feel now, what is meaningful today, may be completely different from how you fee tomorrow. Don't throw your life away for a transient feeling.
God Bless you man! Thanks for the song meaning! I love that the meaning could have its own little meaning to everyone, so even though this song has a specific meaning to it, any one can put there experiences into the meaning and make it there own. This is one of the reasons why I love music! I listen to this song, if I feel this way. I really like songs written like this, and songs that relate to how I feel! People you are not alone! And keep listening to music it really helps!!
Flag DJN8 on October 28, Thank you for recogizing Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana - The Best Of appreciating the puns.
They are his genius signature. Flag raghdasnowfall on February 12, General Comment That was the greatest song ever written, or at least since the Beatles. The song name comes from the deodorant.
