Smells Like Teen Spirit

"Smells Like Teen Spirit" is a song by American rock band Nirvana. It is the opening track and lead single from the band's second album, released on DGC Records; the unexpected success of the song propelled Nevermind to the top of several albums charts at the start of 1992, an event marked as the point where grunge entered the mainstream."Smells Like Teen Spirit" was Nirvana's biggest hit in most countries, charting high on music industry charts around the world in 1991 and 1992, including topping the charts of Belgium, New Zealand and Spain. The song received critical plaudits, including topping the Village Voice Jop critics' poll; the song was dubbed an "anthem for apathetic kids" of Generation X, but Nirvana grew uncomfortable with the attention it brought them. In the years since Kurt Cobain's death and critics have continued to praise "Smells Like Teen Spirit" as one of the greatest songs in the history of music; the music video for the song is based on the concept of a school concert which ends in anarchy and riot, inspired by Jonathan Kaplan's 1979 film Over the Edge and the Ramones' film Rock'n' Roll High School.

It won two MTV Video Music Awards, in heavy rotation on music television. In subsequent years Amy Finnerty of MTV's programming department, claimed the video "changed the entire look of MTV" by giving the channel "a whole new generation to sell to". In 2000 the Guinness World Records named "Smells Like Teen Spirit" the "Most Played Video" on MTV Europe. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's list of The Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll. In 2001, The Recording Industry Association of America ranked the song at number 80 on their Songs of the Century list. In 2002, NME ranked the song the number two on its list of "100 Greatest Singles of All Time", while Kerrang! Ranked it at number one on its list of the "100 Greatest Singles of All Time". In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked "Smells Like Teen Spirit" ninth on its list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. In 2017, it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain said that "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was an attempt to write a song in the style of the Pixies, a band he admired: I was trying to write the ultimate pop song.

I was trying to rip off the Pixies. I have to admit it; when I heard the Pixies for the first time, I connected with that band so that I should have been in that band—or at least a Pixies cover band. We used their sense of dynamics, being soft and quiet and loud and hard. Cobain came up with the song's title when his friend Kathleen Hanna, at the time the lead singer of the riot grrrl band Bikini Kill, wrote "Kurt Smells Like Teen Spirit" on his wall. Hanna meant that Cobain smelled like the deodorant Teen Spirit, which his then-girlfriend Tobi Vail wore. Cobain said he was unaware of the deodorant until months after the single was released, had interpreted it as a revolutionary slogan, as they had been discussing anarchism and punk rock."Smells Like Teen Spirit" was, along with "Come as You Are", one of several songs written following Nirvana's first recording sessions with producer Butch Vig in 1990. Cobain began writing it a few weeks before recording Nirvana's second album, Nevermind, in 1991.

When he presented the song to his bandmates, it comprised just the main guitar riff and the chorus vocal melody, which bassist Krist Novoselic dismissed as "ridiculous". In response, Cobain made the band play the riff for a half. Novoselic began playing the riff more inspiring drummer Dave Grohl to create the drum beat; as a result, it is the only song on Nevermind to credit all three band members as writers. Prior to the Nevermind recording sessions, the band sent Vig demos for songs including "Teen Spirit". While the sound was distorted due to the band playing at a volume, Vig felt. Vig and the band recorded "Smells Like Teen Spirit" at Sound City recording studio in Van Nuys, California in May 1991. Vig suggested changes to the arrangement, including moving a guitar ad lib to the chorus and shortening the chorus; the band recorded the basic track in three takes, used the second take. Vig corrected. Cobain recorded. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was recorded in the original key of F minor and follows a Fm-B♭–A♭–D♭ chord progression, with the main guitar riff constructed from four power chords played in a syncopated sixteenth note strum by Cobain.

The guitar chords were double tracked to create a "more powerful" sound. The chords lapse into suspended chord voicings as a result of Cobain playing the bottom four strings of the guitar for the thickness of sound; the riff resembles. Cobain said: "It was such a clichéd riff, it was so close to a Boston riff or The Kingsmen's'Louie Louie.'" During the verses, Cobain used a Small Clone effect pedal to add a chorus effect. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" uses a "somewhat conventional formal structure" consisting of four-, eight-, twelve-bar sections, including an eight-bar verse, an eight-bar pre-chorus, a twelve-bar chorus. Musicologist Graeme Downes, who led the band the Verlaines, says that "Smells Like Teen Spirit" illustrates developing variation. Elements of the structure are marked with shifts in volume and dynamics, moving from quiet to loud several times; this structure of "quiet verses with wobbly, chorused guitar, followed by big, loud hardcore-inspired choruses" became an alternative rock template.

During the verses, the band maintains the same chord progression as the chorus. Cobai

Didier Dagueneau

Didier Dagueneau was a winemaker in the Loire Valley who received a cult following for his Sauvignon blanc wines from the Pouilly Fumé appellation. He died on 17 September 2008, in an ultralight plane crash in the Cognac region of France, he is survived by two children with his ex-wife Martine and Charlotte, who work at the domaine, two children with his partner Suzan Cremer, Aaron and Léon. Dagueneau was born in 1956 in Nièvre, Burgundy, his winery with 12 hectares of vineyards was in the town of Saint-Andelain, in Pouilly Fumé. He was seeking to make "the best Sauvignon blanc in the world", he made a variety of different cuveés, including Buisson-Renard, Pur Sang, Asteroïde, Silex. Somewhat unusually for the appellation and grape variety, many of his wines were meant for cellaring and some had a clear influence of oak, he was developing vineyards in Jurançon. An ex-motorcycle racer with no formal enological training Dagueneau clashed with other winegrowers about "typicité" while achieving unprecedented prices for the region.

His vineyard practices were a combination of the exacting with the unusual, such as using horses to plow the soil between vines. He was described as a risk taker and an experimenter, with perfectionist attitudes to his work, cutting yields to achieve greater ripeness. Footnotes

TWA Flight 358

Trans World Airlines Flight 358 was a domestic flight traveling from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport to New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport. On June 11, 1971, a ticketless man named Gregory White boarded the Boeing 727 aircraft using force and demanded a machine gun, $75,000, to be flown to North Vietnam. After murdering a passenger, White was soon apprehended at the John F. Kennedy International Airport by FBI agents and arrested, it was the first attempted hijacking in the United States. On June 11, 1971, Gregory White bypassed security at O'Hare International Airport and entered onto the tarmac, preparing to board TWA Flight 358; when flight attendant Cathy Culver asked White to present his boarding ticket, White took out a pistol and held it to Culver's head. He entered the aircraft and demanded to be flown to North Vietnam, in addition to demanding a machine gun and $75,000; the pilot Captain Robert Eugene Elder and co-pilot Ronald Dupuis contacted TWA Operations for help.

Passengers were allowed to exit the aircraft, while they were doing so, U. S. Deputy Marshal Joseph Zito boarded by climbing a rope into a window in the cockpit. One passenger, Howard Franks, reentered the aircraft after forgetting an item and was shot dead by White. Captain Robert Elder dragged Franks' body back to the terminal, returned to the aircraft, negotiated with the hijacker to stop at John F. Kennedy International Airport for a larger aircraft better suited for travel to North Vietnam. While en route to New York, Zito gave an extra firearm to Don Welsheimer, the flight engineer, both exchanged gunfire between the cockpit and the cabin with the hijacker. Once on the ground in New York, a FBI agent shot White in White surrendered; the pilots, flight engineer, flight attendant, Deputy Marshal escaped down an escape slide. White was arrested and taken to Queens General Hospital. White was deemed too incompetent for trial and was committed to a state mental hospital in Chester, Illinois.
