Someone Played 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' In Major Chords—And We Don't Know What To Say

January 6th, 2018

Okay millennials, now you’ve gone too far! We get it when you giggle over brunch, avocado toast in hand, at the Gen Xers’ high-waisted mom jeans, or how we ran around thinking we were cool with a pager on our hip, dashing to the nearest pay phone to return every call. We can even understand why you mock us old people still clinging to Facebook because Snapchat confuses us.

But when it comes to our music? Keep your grubby little paws off of it.

The ’90s were everything. We lived in our tattered flannel shirts and Doc Martens. We smoked cigarettes, starved ourselves for the heroin chic look, and went to Lollapalooza to see acts like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ice T & Body Count, and Pearl Jam. But the reigning kings of the grunge era were and always will be Nirvana.

The song “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was the anthem of our generation.

Now, 27 years after the release of our defining song, a young band from Austin, Texas, called Sleep Good has remixed it in a major chord and turned it into a happy little pop number titled “Teen Sprite.”

THIS. IS. BLASPHEMY.

So, millennials, let’s call a truce. We’ll keep our music and you can keep yours, m’kay?
