Nirvana’s official Twitter account unexpectedly shared a post for the 30th anniversary of their monumental album, ‘Nevermind.’ To celebrate this special day, the band shared an audio in which Kurt Cobain explains how he came up with the title ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit.’ After hearing Kurt’s voice, fans shared dozens of tweets saying the audio feels like he’s still alive.
Nearly all of you know that ‘Nevermind‘ is Nirvana’s second studio album, released on September 24, 1991. The record is considered the band’s breakthrough album as it reached No. 1 on the US Billboard 200. The album has also sold over 30 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time.
The lead single ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit‘ peaked at No. 6 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and its music video was as successful as the song and was heavily rotated on MTV. Now that it has been 30 years since Nirvana released one of the greatest albums in rock history, they shared a post on their official Twitter account, which is unusual.
With their tweet, the band revealed a voice recording that belongs to lead singer Kurt Cobain in which he talks about how he came up with the title for ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit.’ As expected, fans were moved after hearing the late singer’s speaking voice after all these years since he passed away in 1994, at the young age of 27. Many fans commented that the audio made them feel like Cobain is alive, and the post received over 3k likes quickly.
A fan tweeted:
“KURT IS ALIVE???”
Another fan shared:
“NO WAY HE’S BEEN ALIVE THIS WHOLE TIME”
A fan spoke for all Nirvana fans:
“This makes it feel like he’s still here man.”
