April 17th, 1991. Seattle’s OK Hotel.
Local favorite Nirvana performs “Smells Like Teen Spirit” live for the first time. The lyrics are up for grabs, the guitar solo is a mess and the song screeches to a halt.
And it is absolutely brilliant.
Five months later Nirvana unleashes Nevermind and the whole fucking world explodes.
Twenty years on, still a bone-crushing blast of pop perfection.
