Tori Amos

Tori Amos' version of "Smells Like Teen Spirit," which appears as the B-side of her 1992 single "Crucify," is one of the earliest known covers of the song. Cobain was a fan – he once described her pretty solo piano cover  as "a great breakfast cereal version." This performance of the song was filmed at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland in 1992.
