30 Years Ago Today – Nirvana Films “Smells Like Teen Spirit” Video

30 years ago today (8/17/91), Nirvana shot the video for ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ at GMT Studios in Culver City, California. The shoot features real Nirvana fans as the audience and is a brown-hued high school gymanisum gone grunge, while Kurt Cobain in his green and brown striped shirt is now that of music legend. The video won Nirvana the Best New Artist and Best Alternative Group awards at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards, and in 2000 the Guinness World Records named ‘Teen Spirit’ the Most Played Video on MTV Europe.
