how to i get the "smells like teen spirit sound". what i mean is what would be settings on my amp and guitar, neck/bridge pickup, humbucker/singlecoil. i have a boss DS-1 which i think is the same one kurt used which settings should i use on that (it has tone, level and distorton). thanks
bridge pickup and crank everything...

i don't think it's a very desirable sound to begin with I'm sure you could do better.
give your guitar a unique tuning by simply detuning 5 of the 6 strings... that's pretty much how it's done.
Belief is a beautiful armour but makes for the heaviest sword.
Really all you need is some distortion for the main parts and clean for the intro. Also crank up the tone on it. It's a really simple song and really simple settings.
Also, make sure to have a nice chorus pedal for the clean section.
