I'm not saying that SLTS didnt throw grunge into a whole nother level....it did, but the songs on Bleach were better and off Nevermind...almost everysong is better. I'm saying why was SLTS chosen to be the defining song and not another, better song

MTV didn't force nirvana to put out smells like teen spirit it was their choice to record that video and release that song as a single.

My point is...

Nirvana may have been the first band to take grunge to the mainstream, but they did not invent it. Others did it earlier and better. Smells like Teen Spirit became their revolutionary, ground-breaking single...but really, what ground did it break. The only thing that changed was the label on the CD case. Green River and Soundgarden were making grunge music 6 years before Nirvana and they have songs just as good if not better than SLTS.
