I remember, vaguely, years ago reading some quote from Kurt Cobain saying writing that Smells Like Teen Spirit was an attempt to “rip off” a Pixies song (Debaser, I had thought, but I can’t find a reference to it)
Some months ago I noted in this video (above), at about 1min 15s, Bernard Butler talks about writing Animal Nitrate and says
“inspiration at the time was totally secretly, Smells Like Teen Spirit”.
That is all.
