Can We Get Teen Spirit to One Billion?

Nirvana’s music video for “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is on track to cross a high mark on YouTube shortly.
Posted a decade ago, the Nevermind album opener is currently at 993 million views on its way to 1 billion.
The second most-watched video of a 90s song, according to the streaming site, only Guns N’ Roses has it beat with “November Rain”.
GN’R also tops YouTube’s most-watched rankings for an 80s tune with “Sweet Child O Mine”.
I think it’s the most iconic 90s music video, so I’m not surprised it has so many views. Also, there’s so much mystery and intrigue surrounding Kurt Cobain’s death, and a new generation is discovering him and the band.
