Nirvana Nabs Award For Best Vintage Viral Video

Posted October 25

Nirvana is having a pretty big fall. First, the 20th anniversary of Nevermind, now this: The grunge band that scored our tortured adolescence has won itself the O Music Award for Best Vintage Viral Video.

The video in question depicts the band’s 1991 appearance on Top of the Pops, where they were not allowed to play their instruments on air. In defiance of that rule, the band chose to elaborately pantomime “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” Smells like a winning moment in history to us.

Keep it here for more info on the iconic vid in the coming week or so — and congrats to the band for being so historically epic.
