Crazy Song, but great nevertheless - bhargavsai
Oh come on! This song is way better than territorial pissings and negative creep. I know it's not very famous, but should be at least in top 15...!
I wouldn't say it was the single best ever Nirvana song, but it's up there with You Know You're Right and Scentless Apprentice. Smells like Teen Spirit is the most overrated Nirvana song and really doesn't define Nirvana as a grunge band. Probably not even worthy of the top 20.
Should be top 10, underrated songV 31 Comments
Highly underrated, milk it is by far one of Nirvana's top songs. Powerful ass, high energy chorus which gives you that 'feel awesome' feeling. Should be way up there!
Want to hear REAL grunge? Look no further than this song. Nirvana were a grunge band, this song is actually worthy of the title grunge. None of that mainstream pop crap
Like "Heart-Shaped Box" and "Drain You," this song explores many medical themes. It also appears to be about love in some form.
DOLL STEAK! TEST MEAT! awesome - Kfox101V 3 Comments
This song is so awesome, heaps of energy.
it should be at least top 12
And why is Teen spirit at the top? Its not even that great,
most of Nevermind is better than it
Yeah, teen spirit is probably my favourite but if you've seen the video for this you'll know that it shows the TRUE nirvana!
I really hate the fist 10 sec. when Kurt's talking: come on people now... but the moment when the guitar part starts is just so powerful, I can't even describe it with words. Personally I think it should be in the top 3 along with polly and lithium. This is one of the songs that made nevermind one of the best albums ever!
First off it's Krist singing the intro, Second, Hoe can you hate he intro?!?!? It makes the song the song! This is the punkiest song on nevermind. But the best Nirvana song is AneursymV 8 Comments
even though songs have better lyrics... this is still the best one for me... just... can people be so deaf? this has to be AT LEAST in the first 15!
Fantastic and underrated track
Where the bad folks go when they die
they don't go to heaven where the angels fly
la la la
Honestly this is quite a difficult list to have a top 10. Instead it should just say that almost all Nirvana songs are musical genius and could easily be swapped around on this list. In my opinion this one really hits the spot with that guitar.
According to me, this should be in the top ten. Wait.. It should be the no. 1 in fact. Liked it more than the original song.
Beautiful guitar riffs with powerful voice of Curt Cobain.
This is not in the top ten? What! This song is god dude! Love it! It's way better than a lot of these other songs! Must be put in the top ten dude, must! It's one of there best! Sick rift!
An amazing opening song for an amazing album. Its basically the anti-Smells Like Teen Spirit, with its loud and exciting verses and its calmer choruses. My favorite Kurt Cobain guitar riff and one of my favorite Kurt Cobain guitar solos, just behind In Bloom and Sappy. Overall my favorite Nirvana song, it is completely underrated.
Best opening line on an album! "Teenage Angst has payed off well, now I'm bored and old." Genius. I love Nirvana and all of their songs, but this one just stands out more than the rest. Although I don't feel that "Smells Like Teen Spirit" should be number one, it's still a great song and without it, Nirvana might not have such an ever lasting legacy on music. RIP Kurt
Why do people have to say their favourite songs are the underrated ones, Sappy is not the best nirvana song jees, it's great song, like every nirvana song, Serve the servants is my favourite song. But I'm not going to say that all the other songs are overrated they're all amazingV 8 Comments
What I like about this song is that, although Kurt wrote it in a couple minutes, and only to "fill" the album, there's something about the rhythm and the lyrics that's somehow catchy.
I'm on a plain
I can't complain
Just a fun song:) even kurt said it was just total gibberish. Always underrated with nirvana songs, along with dumb and sappy
I love this song. It isn't even the band's best effort but it still manages to make my top 10. The unplugged version is my favorite.V 4 Comments
Amazing song with very good lyrics. 'To come back as fire to burn all the liars and leave a blanket of ash on the ground'. Just everything in this song sounds so perfect.R.I. P Kurt Cobain
The best Nirvana song my opinion. Deep dark meaningful lyrics, powerful chores, loud distorted guitars, Kurt's haunting voice just makes this song 10x better every time you listen to it.
Wow. People need to start listening to more nirvana, this is definitely my favorite song by them. From lyrics to the melody, just perfect
Best nirvana song by far. SLTS is overratedV 7 Comments
The greatest song I've ever heard of about a turtle.
I named my pet turtle Sappy
This is a awesome song that is about a turtle and it... ROCKS!
Why not top 10V 5 Comments
Really underrated! At least Top 20 surely! Listen to this song from their Live and Loud Concert, it's brilliant!
Why is this # 40? The lyrics are awesome & it is very heavy and loud. How can you guys rate this #40.
The best Nirvana songs get no airplay. There's an ugliness to this most people can't relate to... And it feels genuine.
Definitely underrated. Only Cobain could create an intro from distortion.V 3 Comments
School in 54th place. you mad or something? This is the third best song of Nirvana after Lithium and Come as you are (Smells like teen spirit is 4th :))
Pretty amazing song. One of the best opening riffs ever. Not the best of all time, but certainly higher than 42nd place.
23!? This song is so bad ass! Sure there is only 10 words but it is more of a instrumental thing. I love this song especially the live at reading version. If you are a Nirvana fan and you haven't heard this song, I would definitely check it out
Powerful opening riff and demonstrates that a song can be a simple aka punk! Kurt was able to convey the angst of childhood here in just a few words. By far my favorite track off of what I view as their best album Bleach..V 5 Comments
You must be kidding me! This song is one of the best songs I've ever heard! There are so many qualities, I can't even dare to pretend that I can list them all. The most obvious are: Kurt's incredible voice, great lyrics (the chorus sounds SO GOOD), and mind blowing guitar... just listen to it!
Yes, I agree. This song IS very good, however, it's not theirs. They covered it from a band they admire called "The Meat Puppets". If it was theirs, I would say it deserves a top 10 spot. The song is very catchy and awesome.
Smarten up kids. This is top 5. If he wrote the list
DADDY'S LITTLE GIRL AIN'T A GIRL NO MORE!
many people don't know about this one, WHAT'S WRONG WITH THEM! - rock2metal
Great song, I listen to it when I'm angry and I turn into a 'Negative Creep' laugh out loud
Seriously underrated, should be in the top ten at least
If your a true Nirvana fan you should know this one! - flippermafatpatty
...and I'm stoned.V 6 Comments
Some amazing songs in their discography haven't even got a single vote! I suppose that's testament to how many great songs they had. Still, as great as it is, 'Smells like teen spirit' is their only song that I can't even listen to anymore. Very surprised to see that at no. 1.
How is this not in the top 10, or 20 even?
This should be number 1. It's really great.
! It is on 50th Position.
Why is this #74? Really? This song is great! It should at least be in the top 20! WHY
What?!? HOW IS THE MOST BADASS SONG OF ALL TIME #73!?! - Kfox101
This is actually an excellent song. It is the paragon of grunge.
It's underrated. Should be in top 3. Nothing more to say. UNDERRATED!
Such an awesome song.. Why is it, for God's sake, numer 31? It should be at least top ten. Especially the riff is really good and catchy. As said already, it is amazingly underrated.
How is this number 28? This is easily in Nirvana's top ten songs. Amazing catchy tune
Are you kidding? This low? I really like this song and think it deserves to be in the top ten.V 8 Comments
Kurt said that paper cuts and smells like teen spirit are the two songs that describe nirvana. Definitely one of the best songs of nirvana!
An intense combination of a badass drum rhythm, distorted guitars and a killer chorus, certainly better than the majority of Nevermind
The good non-mainstream Nirvana!
" The lady whom I feel maternal love for cannot look me in the eyes. But I see hers and they are blue and they cock, and twist, and masterbate! " One of Nirvana's heaviest songs.10/10! - Kfox101
One of the best songs and its history which shows the respect and affection Dave has for Kurt makes this even more special
The song has a very good (a bit sad) vibe to it that always gets me thinkin'
Great song. Really reflects how awesome of a musician Dave is. - MontyPython
Shut up it's good but not the best in history idiotic retard
Blew on 38th position? Really? This song should be at least on the 15th position, where it's more deserving.
"If you wouldn't mind I would like to blew
If you wouldn't mind I would like to lose
If you wouldn't care I would like to leave
If you wouldn't mind I would like to breathe"
Come on dudes, this song rocks!
Wow 43?! SHAMEFUL! This song embodies Nirvana! M/ Someone using this site to find good Nirvana songs would completely overlook this song with it being buried all the way down here at 43. Come on people! Kurt would be disappointed.
One of the best Nirvana songs and the best from Bleach in my opinion, Kurt's voice is so powerful in this song...
I would go for "Love Buzz", but that's a cover song. Blew is sludgy, hard, heavy, and is a prime example of Nirvana's early years.V 5 Comments
Oh my god this is the top song of nirvana..46th you guys kidding me.. Listen to this song man!... Then you'll know the truth of Kurt Cobain...
This one should rate higher, but it's not the most well known.
Not much talk.. just thinking..
Maybe that's why you did die.V 2 Comments
Deserves to be in the top 10 at least! This is like Breed 2.0 and rocks just as hard as that song so get this up there immediately!
I love this song it makes me feel happy. Rip kurt
It should be on the top 10... I think this song is the most powerful song by nirvana.. Very strong.. Very good
It's a very very powerful song! this should be on top 15!V 4 Comments
