    It kicked a$$ for a grunge song at a time when metal was starting to suffer. The first time I heard it was super loud on the dance floor at a bar and I was super drunk and slam dancing.

    Absolutely nothing.  "Stinks like teen feet,"  It never went anywhere in Calgary.  

    Wow!  LOSERS who also want to eat a shotgun!  Go for it!

    I think it was the first grunge song to make it big in mainstream music. 

  • It was a breakthrough Grunge song.

  • Erm, I'll be honest I wasn't blown away with it at the time and it's still wouldn't make my Top 30 Nirvana songs but for it's time I think it blew away a few cobwebs from a tired music scene.  The 90's didn't have great start with Rap and Boy Bands dominating the charts so it did sound very new, very fresh and of course slightly dark for it's time but I personally prefer Patti Smith's version.
