Technically written by all three band members, Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic, and Dave Grohl, lyrics by Cobainit was not expected to be the hit that it was. By the end of 91 about three months after the initial release of the songthe single was on heavy rotation at almost any rock station format you could think of: modern rock, heavy rock, album rock, punk rock, and college stations. Yes, even though some of it is a little difficult to pick up on at first-listen, after diving a bit into the lyrics, there is substance.
Kurt Cobain, the band's frontman, wasn't usually very talkative during gigs; he mostly left the witty banter between songs to bassist Krist Novoselic and drummer Dave Grohl. On that night, however, Cobain couldn't help himself. The band was currently mulling over major label offers, and was ultimately two weeks away from signing with DGC, a Geffen record imprint.

For starters, the author of the song Nirvana's lead singer Kurt Cobain did not know what the term "teen spirit" meant when he used it as the title; he thought it was an arcane anti-establishment motto, when in fact it was the name of a mildly popular deodorant aimed at young females. In this sense, the song resembles the Beatles' Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds: the public at the time, quite naturally, thought the song was about LSD, the public's favorite drug, while John Lennon always insisted that it was actually an innocent tune inspired by one of his son Julian's drawings. The fact that the dreamy song alludes to such phantasmagoric entities as "newspaper taxis" and "plasticine porters with looking-glass ties" has led many observers to believe that Lennon was not being on the level here. Smells Like Teen Spirit is generally conceded to be one of the most epochal songs in the history of rock'n'roll.
