‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ Reaches Billion-Stream Milestone

Nirvana’s iconic hit “Smells Like Teen Spirit” has reached a new milestone in the streaming era – one billion streams on Spotify.

That makes it just the second song from the 90’s to reach that mark, joining “Wonderwall” by Oasis.

The song will be added to Spotify’s exclusive “Billions Club” playlist, which also includes tracks like “Don’t Stop Believin'”, “Africa”, and “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

How do you listen to music these days – do you still listen to physical albums, or is it all digital?
