Nirvana's 1991 single "Smells Like Teen Spirit" has gone in at Number Six in the Official UK Singles Chart's midweek placings.
The song has been released in a bid to become 2011's Christmas Number One. However, the man behind the campaign to score Nirvana a Christmas Number One has played down his chances of success.
, who also started 2009's campaign to make Rage Against The Machine
's "Killing In The Name
" Christmas Number One believes that Military Wives Choir
's "Wherever You Are
" will take the top spot over Nirvana and this year's winners of "The X Factor
", Little Mix
"I think it's going be a lot tougher than the Rage Against The Machine campaign, which was bloody hard. There's a lot more at stake. The Military Wives single has got a very big amount of pre-orders. In complete honesty, I think that's the one to keep an eye out for, more than the actual 'X Factor'."
According to bookmakers Ladbrokes, Nirvana's song currently has a 7/1 chance of winning. "X Factor" winners Little Mix are at 15/8, while Military Wives Choir are currently at 1/2 to finish on top.
