 Smells Like Teen Spirit

Please give comments and feedback.
Either post on this page or email
me at Noata@hotmail.com, thanks.

Go ahead and look at the lyrics at
the bottom of the page, go ahead 
and sing your ass off! I'm tired
of looking at shitty tabs on the net.
                                          
I think this is pretty damn accurate
I used labels on the lyrics so if you
are tone deaf you can still play along.

Note: If this doesn't sound like the 
recording, learn to read a tab. 'Cuz
this tab's got everything...all work
is done by me which is a shit load,
even the bloody lyrics!!!!!!!

Tab Legend:
x     - muted note
/ & \ - slide (up and down)
(#)   - non-essential note(don't have to play it)
~     - vibrato        \
b(#)  - bend            it's just used for the
                        high high notes in the chorus
                        which are mostly accidental(I think)
                        (they sounds different each time...)

Tuning:
Standard (EADGBE)

Dictionary for Lyrics(LOL):
mulatto: a child with a black and white parent
albino: a person whose skin is very white(pale)
libido: one's sexual desire
mosquito: an insect that drains blood(you should know this one...)

Tempo:
this one's for metronomes, about 80-90
you could get the rhythm easily so this
can be ignored

                                               Play along with drum beat.

(Every power chord is played with downstrokes and upstrokes, if you can't tell.)

then:     my shitty attempt at deciphering the high notes...

               The high notes are accidental, I presume.
               Sound pretty cool though :).

Lyrics:

Verse:
Load up on guns
Bring your friends
it's fun to lose
and to pretend
she's over bored
and self assured
oh no, I know a dirty word

hello hello hello how low
hello hello hello how low
hello hello hello how low
hello hello hello

Chorus:
with the lights out
it's less dangerous
here we are now
entertain us
I feel stupid
and contagious
here we are now
entertain us
a mulatto, an albino
a misquito my libido
yeah!

Hey! YAY!:
hey
hey

Verse:
I'm worst at what
I do best
and for this gift
I feel blessed
a little group
has always been
and always will
until the end

hello hello hello how low
hello hello hello how low
hello hello hello how low
hello hello hello

Chorus:
with the lights out
it's less dangerous
here we are now
entertain us
I feel stupid
and contagious
here we are now
entertain us
a mulatto, an albino
a misquito my libido
yeah!

Hey! YAY!:
yay
yay

Verse:
and I forget
just why I taste
oh yeah I guess it makes me smile
I found it hard
it's hard to find
oh well whatever nevermind

hello hello hello how low
hello hello hello how low
hello hello hello how low
hello hello hello

Chorus:
with the lights out
it's less dangerous
here we are now
entertain us
I feel stupid
and contagious
here we are now
entertain us
a mulatto, an albino
a misquito my libido
a denial
a denial
a denial
a denial
a denial
a denial
a denial
a denial
a denial
