Weird Hipster Cover Of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” Featured In Horror Movie Trailer

Smells like teen death. The Gallows is the latest film hoping to be the next summer blockbuster this season. The horror film, which is produced by Blumhouse productions (Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Sinister) is about a boy named Charlie who is killed in a horrific accident during The Gallows, a school play that takes place in the fictional Beatrice High School in 1993. Fast forward to 2013, students at the school attempt to resurrect the failed play in an attempt to honor the anniversary of the tragedy – and that’s where things start to go horribly wrong in this new found footage horror flick.

You can watch the trailer below, which features a cover (albeit a weird hipster one) of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Think Up Anger ft. Malia J below, along with the official video for that cover:


  • Thelonious Funk

    This looks stupid

    And that cover of SLTS is atrocious,

    • Piyush Bhatia

      i had to listen the original SLTS like 8 times to get over this abomination 😀

      • Thelonious Funk

        I took a few showers and started to feel like myself again

  • Jamie Coughlan

    You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.

  • Jamie Coughlan

    Also this kind of reminds me of Tori Amos’ cover of Smells like Spirit from the early 90s. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2YkdnrM3aw

  • Eddie Yarler

    Sounds like Lorde’s cover of Everybody Wants to Rule the World.

  • Raj

    Please everyone please stop covering SLTS and butchering it’s not a piano tune and not meant to be one. It’s Cobain full of rage, angst with tremendous anger, I don’t why we need to turn it into some kind of death ballad.

  • fuck them

    my goodness please leave this song alone
