    Smells Like Teen Spirit

    Nirvana


    Intro: Main Riff x2 (clean)

               Main Riff x4 (distortion)

     

    w/Verse Riff (clean):

    Load up on guns
    Bring your friends
    It’s fun to lose
    And to pretend
    She’s overboard
    Myself assured
    And now I know
    A dirty word

    w/Hello Riff (distortion & phaser):
    Hello (x 16)

    Chorus w/Main Riff (distortion):
    With the lights out it’s less dangerous
    Here we are now
    Entertain us
    I feel stupid and contagious
    Here we are now
    Entertain us
    A mulatto
    An albino
    A mosquito
    My libido
    Yeah!

     

    Hey Riff x2

     

    Verse Riff x2

    w/Verse Riff:
    I’m worse at what I do best
    And for this gift I feel blessed
    Our little group has always been
    And always will until the end

     


    w/Hello Riff (distortion & phaser):
    Hello (x 16)

    Chorus

     

    Hey Riff x2

     

    Solo: Main Riff x8

     

    Tacet 2 Measures (bass only)

     

    w/bass only:
    And I forget
    Just what it takes
    And yet I guess it makes me smile
    I found it hard
    Its hard to find
    Oh well, whatever, nevermind

    w/Hello Riff (distortion & phaser):
    Hello (x 16)

    Chorus w/no “yeah” at the end

     

    w/Main Riff x4

    A denial

    A denial

    A denial

    A denial

    A denial

    A denial

    A denial

    A denial

    A denial

     

    End on F5
