(hennemusic) Nirvana's 1991 smash, "Smells Like Teen Spirit", has passed 1 billion views on YouTube. Posted to YouTube in June of 2009, the clip reached the landmark view milestone in ten and a half years.

The band announced the milestone achievement on social media, with bassist Krist Novoselic sharing the news with a retweet, adding "Thanks to you all!!!!"

Directed by Samuel Bayer, the video filmed on a soundstage in Culver City, CA on August 17, 1991, just a few weeks before the song would be issued as the lead single from the Seattle outfit's second studio album.

"Smells Like Teen Spirit" would reach No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 while "Nevermind" would go on to become the group's first US chart-topper when it knocked Michael Jackson's "Dangerous" out of the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 after that record sold four million copies in its first month following release.
