Nirvana “Smells Like Teen Spirit” – This killer song was written by the masters: Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic, and Dave Grohl. It became a major hit in 1991 and shot “Nevermind” (the album it hails from) to the tippy top of the charts. Thanks to this song, alternative rock made its way into the mainstream market – not an easy feat. Some call this song the “anthem for apathetic kids” but I like to call it “awesome.”
