On September 10th in 1991, a little Seattle band called Nirvana released their single Smells Like Teen Spirit. The unexpected success of this song launched their album Nevermind to the top of the charts in 1992, and officially ushered in the grunge era to mainstream rock. Seattle has many great bands, but the breakout of Nirvana's hit did a lot to put a spotlight on our city's music.
