Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is one of the most recognizable songs in rock history, but you’ve never heard it like this. Austin band Sleep Good pitch-shifted the song to a major scale, and now it sounds more like bright pop punk than an angsty grunge anthem. This alternate version has been dubbed “Teen Sprite” by Nirvirna, and you can hear it via Vimeo below. You can also listen on SoundCloud here. Shout out to Conner Youngblood for the heads up.
