There is no ambiguity with "Smells," but there is with other song titles. I'm simply being consistent in my naming. How would you propose we distinguish Three Dog Night's "Joy to the World" from George Frederic Handel's "Joy to the World"? --the Epopt
That really is a disambiguation issue with those two songs, not with teen spirit. --maveric149
Okay, you win. Remove the possessive at will. --the Epopt
The text of the article implies (unsourced) that the Red Hot Chili Peppers parodied this Nirvana video for their Dani California video... I just watched it (Dani California) on YouTube and DID observed a parody of the /Nirvana Unplugged/ event ...but nothing related to the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" video...
Yeah, they didn't even play "Smells Like Teen Spirit" at the Unplugged concert. Nevermind the fact that even if they did, it wouldn't be referring to the actual "Smells Like Teen Spirit" music video. Fixed.
The Dani California video is reminiscent of the video for In Bloom.
I believe the Dani California video is just a 'style parody' of Nirvana in general.
If you reverse the song you get Kurt saying things like: "I hate you" and "Say yes to me" really freaky. I think that should be mentioned in the article (if not). That's why it's hard to understand what he is saying, because this song is actualy two songs. Check it on youtube, search for: Smells like teen spirit lyrics backwards. I can't get the song out of my head it's just playing in reverse!!!
There is a policy discussion in progress at the Manual of Style which affects this page, suggesting that the capitalization of "like" should be removed. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. — LlywelynII 10:54, 12 February 2016 (UTC)
