It Was Only A Matter Of Time: Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ In Classical Latin

This is Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ covered in classical Latin (75 BC to 3rd Century AD) as arranged by Youtuber the_miracle_aligner with instrumentals by Sir Stantough and translation by AB. It’s not bad. Although I didn’t take Latin in high school so I’m not sure how the translation holds up. What language did you take? I took three years of Spanish. “¿Cómo te llamas?” Bien, gracias.

    I’m surprised how much of it actually maintains a rhyme.

    Though quite a bit of latin does in in ‘us’ – so maybe it’s as big a deal as I think?

    Actually quite catchy.. From my 7 years if Latin, I only remember this verb best: facere..
