my seattle boys
******
Yes...it really smells like teen spirit. One of the best songs in 90's! What a rifle! I am not a grunge fan but I love this song.
****
yeah
******
!!!
***
Keskmik!
******
brilliant
*****
Another one of those songs regurded by most critics as one of the best of all time. I acknowledge those sentiments but to me it's over played & there are other Nirvana songs that are better. It does have a timeless feel to it even to this day & for generations to come.
***
Good, but overrated. 3+
******
Goes without saying that this is a timeless classic. 1st UK top 10. 15 weeks in the UK top 100. UK#7 and Ireland#15. US#6. 400,000 copies sold in the UK.

Re-chart: UK#11 - due to campaign for Christmas #1 - December 2011.

Their biggest selling single in the UK.

Classic.
****
Good but it is quite overrated for me. It is still one of those songs that will never be forgotten though.
******
AWESOME SONG!

Has to be one of the best 90's songs, or one of the best rock songs ever! Brilliant from start to finish, and never gets old.

classic if slightly overrated
******
I don't mind if it's overrated at all, it is what it is, and it's freaking fantastic!
******
Wicked rock track.
******
Outstanding song! Not my favourite of theirs, but close to.
****
pretty good, not really my thing though, so 4* is VERY good, especially for the genre
***
I understand its role in a new sound revolution, but I find it ridiculously overated. Bordering on 2*. Perhaps if I was a few years older to appreciate it when it first came out it would rate higher.
*****
cool song. very cool
******
Great!
******
A classic like no other Grunge track!
******
Is infact a great song.
***
I hated this song when it was charting. It just wasn't my thing. Over time I have come to tolerate it and have lost my irrational hate for it. However, I don't think it's as awesome as critics like to make it out to be and often wonder if Kurt was still alive would this song have been elevated to the iconic status it has.
****
Good, but this song never massively excited me. Not a big fan of grunge, but this song proves grunge can sometimes be catchy.

Really cool and will never be forgotten.
***
For a song that is considered such a classic I find it hard to remember much about it, except for the fact it is supposedly such an awesome song ::) :P

Personally find it nothing special at all and at times it's quite boring. Also as I said above it's not very memorable to me and the only parts I can remember about it 30 minutes after listening to it are parts that have been sampled in other songs. I loathe the last 30 seconds and it's nearly enough to make me want to give this a 2.

Like D Man I can understand its importance in popularising grunge / alternative rock, but that doesn't mean I'm going to give it a higher rating.

6 stars
***
Timeless 90's grunge classic. Only OK to me though.
*****
classic
*****
The best song of all time? I disagree. It definitely made its profound footprint in history, but there have been plenty more fish in this sea of musical breakthroughs.
******
Brilliant song. Love the build-up and the chorus.
*****
The lyrics are all nonsense to me and a bit stupid, but the sound of it is enough for me to compensate for it, plus more.
