Did you know?

Cobain came up with the song's title when his friend Kathleen Hanna,
At the time the lead singer of the riot grrrl punk band Bikini Kill,
spray painted "Kurt Smells Like Teen Spirit" on his wall.
Since they had been discussing anarchism, punk rock, and similar topics,
Cobain interpreted the slogan as having a revolutionary meaning.
What Hanna actually meant, was that Cobain smelled like the
deodorant Teen Spirit, which his then-girlfriend Tobi Vail wore.
Cobain later claimed that he was unaware that it was a brand of
Deodorant until months after the single was released.

Category: Rock | Familiar Songs
Load up on guns, bring your friends
It's fun to lose  and to pretend
She's overboard  and self-assured
Oh no, I know   a dirty word

Hello,   hello,   hello,  how Low
Hello,   hello,   hello,  how Low
Hello,   hello,   hello,  how Low
Hello, Hello, Hello

Chorus:

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              yay           

I'm worse at what   I do best
And for this gift I feel blessed
Our little group  has always been
And always will until the end

Hello,   hello,   hello,  how Low
Hello,   hello,   hello,  how Low
Hello,   hello,   hello,  how Low
Hello, Hello, Hello

Repeat Chorus

And I forget   just why I taste
Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile
I found it hard, it's hard to find
Oh well, whatever, nevermind

Hello,   hello,   hello,  how Low
Hello,   hello,   hello,  how Low
Hello,   hello,   hello,  how Low
Hello, Hello, Hello

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
