Watch Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill) Explain How Kurt Cobain Got The Inspiration For “Smells Like Teen Spirit”


I know I just posted about Nirvana and the one song Kurt Cobain hated the most, but this video is too good.

Kathleen Hanna tells a story of when she was with Kurt Cobain (the two were close friends at the time) in 1990 when they were hanging out and getting drunk, vandalizing fake abortion clinics, and creating the inspiration for the title of one of the most popular songs of the 90s.

The video is a bit long, but make sure to watch the whole thing.
