"Smells Like Teen Spirit" Alternate Lyrics - Nirvana [YouTube]

Watch this incredible rendition of Nirvana's hit song Smells Like Teen Spirit. Kurt Cobain chokes on the microphone in this video made for UK's Top of the Pops. Listen for the poetic change up to the lyrics 'Load up on drugs, kill your friends' while he drags out his voice in a deep baritone drawl. Cobain slides his hand listlessly and carelessly up and down the fret board. Meanwhile, Krist Novoselic is wildly swinging his bass around and Dave Grohl is hitting the drums like a caveman offbeat making it completely, ridiculously obvious that noone is actually playing their instruments.

This is what happens when grunge meets pop.
