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.
