Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” perfectly captured the teenage angst of the early ’90s, a dark and moody grunge track track that helped propel the band from cult fandom to mainstream success.
The song was originally written in minor key (which is sad, bleak and eerie by definition), but a group called Sleep Good decided to take their signature hit and pitch-shift it to a major key, completely changing the tone of the song and turning it into a happy-go-lucky pop punk hit that’s surprisingly catchy.
While I know I should hate it on principal alone, I can’t stop listening to Nirvirna – Teen Sprite for whatever reason. Maybe it’s because it reminds me of Everclear, Weezer, and other bands from the 90’s..
Give it a listen and let us know what you think of it.
