TOM MORELLO REMINISCES ON HEARING “SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT” FOR THE FIRST TIME
In another gem from the Rolling Stone Q&A, Morello talked about hearing the Nirvana staple “Smells Like Teen Spirit” for the first time.
“They [the band] cranked that thing in the truck, and we listened to ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit,’ like, 15 times,” Morello recalls. “I mean, now it’s a song and a band and a record that is oversaturated in a way that I don’t know that I’m ever going to get off on ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ again. But I remember that first night, very clearly, those guys cranking it up. We were moshing around in the parking lot of our rehearsal space.”
