The single, taken from their album “Nevermind,” has arguably becoming Nirvana’s biggest hit. It catapulted Nirvana into mainstream success, and reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. While becoming a rock classic, the single has been the target of mixed criticism. While many praise the single as an anthem of teen / youth revolution, many have critiqued it for it mainly being a song composed of screaming.
