Watch Nirvana Perform “Smells Like Teen Spirit” A Week Before Nevermind Came Out

Nirvana played a 45-minute in-store set at Beehive Records in Seattle just a week before Nevermind came out. Nirvana’s record label DGC expected about 50 patrons, but 200 kids were lined up by two in the afternoon — for an show that was going to start at seven. That’s the first of many indications that this band was going to be big.
