FABTV: Nirvana "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

FABTV: Nirvana "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

Wait! Before you play this video close your eyes. I bet you can recite not only the lyrics but exactly what Kurt Cobain wore in this video. If you can't, Marc Jacobs certainly can. After all, this was the look that spawned his infamous "grunge collection" for Perry Ellis in 1992. Ironically, he was soon dismissed from the house — no matter, he obviously found his path. But back to Kurt. You know the look: striped shirt over long sleeve tee, dirty jeans, beat up Chucks and dirty cardigans. Oh, and don't forget the flannels! It was the anti-fashion look that made fashion history. Kurt was a singular sensation.

I was 16 when this came out and remember well how bitterly disappointed I was that JUST as I was old enough to start dating, all the guys I knew suddenly stopped taking showers and washing their clothes. I still haven't forgiven Nirvana for this. However, credit where credit is due... Kurt Cobain did a lot to make me open to trying music in other languages. I couldn't understand a single word of the lyrics in "Teen Spirit." So when I later encountered songs in French, German, and Japanese, it didn't bother me in the least that I had no idea what the lyrics were about.

I'm too young to know this kind of stuff. I was born in 1992. Obviouxly I've heard of him and listened to a few songs by him but...

ironic that fashion was probably the least of his concerns.

I never knew that about Marc Jacobs. I'm sure the house was kicking themselves a little after letting him go, especially during the grunge wave.

Oh. My. God. Thist is so weird, I just listen to this song about an hour ago for the first time in months and I was thinking about how much I loved the video and those dead-eyed cheerleaders when it first came out. I thought, hmm, I must look it up on YouTube sometime. Freaky!!

I was SO into the grunge/"riot girl" look in high school...this song came out my freshman year and everyone I knew was dressing "grunge-y". I actually had a Gap t-shirt that resembled Kurt's in this video...I wore it all the time.
