De Forest, Emmelie - Smells Like Teen Spirit Lyrics

Load up on guns; bring your friends
It's fun to lose and to pretend
She's over-bored and self-assured
Oh no, I know a dirty word

Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now; entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now; entertain us
A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido
Yeah, hey

I'm worse at what I do best
And for this gift I feel blessed
Our little group has always been
And always will until the end

Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello

And I forget just why I taste
Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile
I found it hard; it's hard to find
Oh well, whatever, never mind

Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello, how low
Hello, hello, hello

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now; entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now; entertain us
A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido
A denial, a denial, a denial, a denial, a denial
A denial, a denial, a denial, a denial

  3. Slightly Sleep Deprived

    The original shows the very angry and confused side of being young, while Emmeline's show the depressed and lonely side

  4. Dazzling RotMG

  14. Luepola

    >btw i dont know what an acoustic cover is

  15. Mozart Herbert

    The dislikes is just from stupid Nirvana fans. I love the original and love this cover. A cover is not supposed to be better or equal the original. She's making her version adapted to her voice and style.

  16. Pavlova Natalya

    Emmelie ❤️


    Everyone sings in the same kind of voice! Pay more attention to the lyrics. Its really sad to see a great song ruined.

  18. Marat Yousif

    Why did you ruin such an amazing song? This song is supposed to be sung with energy and a naturally raspy voice...

    Kenneth Parrish

    she didn't ruin it Kurt appreciated music creativity he probably would have enjoyed it to some extant

  19. derpy videos the eurofan

  27. VendPrekmurec

    This song sucks balls if you try to interpret it through some gay pop, instrumental version.. Hollow, Hollow, Hollow, how low...

  28. Игорь Викторович


  29. Jakob6255

    Nirvana version is best.

  30. Sofia Safaridou

    This song it isn't her but she sing it perfect!

  31. Charlie Button

    Please stop complaining many artists do covers their way in my opinion i prefer this because i prefer her my opinion you cant change it, she has done her version and interpretation, she sings it like this because her voice is more suited to this.

  32. Bohdan Zvenigorodskyi


  33. Джордж Оруэлл

    Очень понравилось, молодцы

  34. Na Za

    True, it doesn't sound like Nirvana, it sounds like Emmelie and it's great like that! :)

    Adam Mcdowell

    No it's terrible

  35. Владимир Сериков

    Занятно. И не дурно.

  36. TopRobbo1970

    This is a steaming turd. (And I love some of her other work.)
    She should stick to being the mother of dragons.

  37. Ricardo Sánchez

    better than Nirvana!!!

  38. Juani Tulian

    Porque mezclaba Come as You Are con Smells Like Teen Spirit? Pero esta zarpado igual!

    Luv ya emms 3

  50. talha merih aydın

    perfect song beatifull

  51. venera


  52. Na Za

    of course it's different, and that's what makes it a good cover! You don't need to be an amazing artist to sing a song in exactly the same way as the original. The key is to make a song that everyone knows in the original version your own and that's what she did perfectly! :) <3

  53. billie

    Stop covering this song! Only the original is good, no one can sing Smells Like Teens Spirit like Kurt Cobain...
    Stop ruining perfect songs. Write own music and try to sing that.


    She's not trying to sound like Kurt.. Unless you've heard a very different edition of Nirvana's version than I've heard. Music is an artform open for enterpretation.. It should be about time people realized that. 
    If you don't like the cover, simply go listening to something else.. You know it's not that hard, what with spotify and youtube offering lots of options..

    Nikolai Henriksen

    @billie hmm.. for your reminder, one of Nirvanas biggest hit was a cover "where did you sleep last night"

    Slightly Sleep Deprived

    Duuude, she DOES write her own music.

  54. rokhstar

    This is how you ruin a good song.


    @George Varndell Nope.


    @George Varndell Everyone have their own opinion. We simply disagree, i dislike this version of the song. No need to hide behind a keyboard with your insults.

    Adam Mcdowell

    No he's right she ruined it

    Jonathan Bremer

    I think this recording definitely shows that they have talent, though I also think that this song just isn't supposed to be acoustic.

  55. Kredes

    My god it sounds fake as fuck..

  56. Autokeybot


  57. Jens Nielsen

    Wow... well that's one way to completely neuter one of the best rock songs ever made!!! If that was the goal, I would say mission accomplished.

  58. Marco Medrano

    Cagala ._.

  59. Will Lloyd

    Ruined it.

  60. Karina

    ... and that's how you destroy a great song, ladies and gentlemen! 

  61. Jørgen P.V. Jørgensen

    virkeligt smukt, men   det er bedre du holder stemmen lavere, du skal    ikke overanstrenge stemmebåndene

  62. Advemtures

    I love this! Best wishes from your fans in the UK ;)

  63. Suburb Wigger

    Nirvana cries at the moment


    @xRescueMe to who? Kurt? he's dead i don't think he gives a shit

    Nana Verschaeren

    @Manekdk But fans can give a shit. So you should watch your language on the internet. 


    @Nana Verschaeren sounds to me like they need to harden the fuck up.

    Ricardo Sánchez

    She did it better than Nirvana



    actually because the style of this video seems to be very contemporary and seems to be for commercial appeal... kurt wouldve hated it.

    Put it this way, kurt hated when the song was made popular (along with other tracks).

    So if he hated the popularity of his own song and how commercial it went, i think he wouldve probably hated this version.

    My personal opinion? I kind of like this version. My favorite version of this song is done by matthew mayfield.

    But i like this version as well. It has a sort of folk vibe to it which i can appreciate.

  65. akljurt

    Really sad! I don't care if she do this coverversion. But this is just a way to get more Money from fans without actually giving anything real or new of her own! Sad!


    @Manekdk Yeah. But in that process of getting revenue, they just (most of them) treat there fans bad. Like selling songs up to an album-release so they sell them 2 times (also sell them when the fans buy the album), selling acoustic versions, coverversions (isn't always that bad - just don't make any sense here), or don't upload there music on Youtube - or at best wait with it for weeks (mostly Danish and japanese music-industry). None of it makes any sense to me. Fans should be treatet as gold instead of just somebody to get gold from. Like I call this EP/song easy Money. The idea is stupid - and yes maybe desperat. I don't think it'll help her in anyway forward. It may give her and the Company Money now, but eurovisionsfans love her already, and some will think this is stupid. None-eurovisionsfans will NOT get fans because of this cover. But even more important - megastars (like I'd like to brand her for ) will never do this. 


    @akljurt you can't really compare the danish market and the japanese, it's still possible to sell millions of albums in japan, in denmark? not so much.
    She' probably s never going to be an international megastar, at least i highly doubt it, i suspect her label sees it too.


    @Manekdk No but the 2 markets has the same way to treat the fans. It seems like the Danish market is inspired by the japanese. The way to not upload the songs and to be focusing on fast/easy Money instead of actual hits that will sell. I guess Denmark is still in Top 25 of the biggest music markets in the World, so it doesn't look as bad as the industry claims (as always!). No I don't think so anymore either. But I think the big reason for that is her label/Danmarks Radio. I don't know were the responsibility lay for the bad promotion for her 2 great songs are. 


    @akljurt eh the business is in a horrible state and it's hurting the creative people. This we must not deny. Danmarks Radio is not her label, Universal is. Danmarks Radio doesn't work as a label.


    @Manekdk It may be bad, but thats because they focus is on earning the biggest possible amount of Money, instead of making the best music. And no I know thot dooh - the comment was on the fact that she's not gonna be a big star. And that's because of her label AND Danmarks Radio - whom I guess had a good deal to say about the budget for promoting atleast "ONly Teardrops" and maybe also "Rainmaker".
