Nirvana top 1 billion streams on Spotify

Posted by on June 29, 2021


Grunge legends Nirvana have sold enough copies of their album Nevermind to go diamond, that is 10x platinum. Perhaps more challenging is their most recent accomplishment, the single, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” reaching one billion streams on Spotify… that’s one million, a thousand times over. Let that sink in. “…Teen Spirit” has joined an extremely rare group of songs ahead of such mega hits as AC/DC’s “Back in Black,” Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” and Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” all closing in on a billion. Ed Sheeran currently resides at the top of the list with “Shape of You” which clocks in at over 2 billion streams.
