Yes I believe Kathleen Hanna (pictured) once mentioned to Kurt that he smelled like Teen Spirit back in the day. Can't remember the details, it's been a long time since I read about it.

Y'all are leaving out the part about Courtney Love beating the shit out of Hanna in a jealous rage.

A beauty beaten by a beast.

Why did she do that? Wasn't Kurt going out with one of the other girls from Bikini Kill at the time (can't remember her name)? - she was the one who used the Teen Spirit deodorant. And Kurt didn't even realise it was a deodorant brand until after he wrote the song.

You could spend a lifetime asking why Courtney Love does anything.

My theory is that she's fucking crazy.

here's the real story

Cobain got the song name when friend Kathleen Hanna, lead singer of the riot grrrl punk band Bikini Kill at the time, spray painted "Kurt Smells Like Teen Spirit" on his wall. Since they had been talking about anarchy, punk rock and similar topics, Cobain took it to be a slogan in that vein. The meaning, however, was that Kurt smelled like the roll-on deodorant brand that Tobi Vail, Hanna's band mate, and Kurt's then-girlfriend, wore. Cobain claimed that he did not know it was a brand of deodorant, and in retrospect was unhappy that a commercial product was named in the song.

In the months after the song became a hit, Colgate-Palmolive created an ad campaign to try to cash in on the connection. One TV commercial featured lines including "Do you smell like teen spirit?" and "Deodorant made for your generation".

On a tennis-related note...

Gabriela Sabatini beat Jennifer Capriati in straight sets in the one and only Teen Spirit Challenge back in 1991.

"If you practice for ten years, you may begin to please yourself, after 20 years you may become a performer and please the audience, after 30 years you may please even your guru, but you must practice for many more years before you finally become a true artist—then you may please even God." --Ali Akbar Khan, 1922-2009
