Smells Like Teen Spirit

From Encyc

Smells Like Teen Spirit was a song by the grunge rock band Nirvana.

Guitar was played by Kurt Cobain, Fender Mustang or Jaguar with humbuckers.

He used at least two effects pedals into a Mesa Boogie Amp. The innovative use of this equipment is part of what made Nirvana famous.

  1. Electroharmonix Small Clone chorus pedal
  2. Boss DS-1 Distortion pedal

The main riff was inspired by Boston's "More Than A Feeling".

The title was inspired by a deodorant marketed to teenagers.
