Last.fm Trends: Miley Cyrus’ Tribute To Grunge
Miley Cyrus apparently has grunge roots, and 92.3 has the video to prove it. Covering Nirvana on the opening night of her tour, the starlet gave her own spin to “Smells Like Teen Spirit”.
Miley’s gained 21,888,303 plays from 908,704 listeners overall, although it’s unclear how many of these listeners would like to proclaim themselves fans: one of her top tags is guilty pleasure. “Party In The U.S.A.” is her top track, with 2,222,543 scrobbles from 296,703 listeners overall, and is way out on top of her six-month chart.
Nirvana meanwhile count 120,890,534 plays from 2,834,992 listeners, dwarfing Miley’s popularity. “Smells Like Teen Spirit” still counts a steady amount of weekly listeners, and although many of her fans may not have heard it before, its popularity has never waned. In fact, Miley’s biggest track would only reach #15 on Nirvana’s six-month chart, as an indicator of the difference between them.
