Yes palm muting a very simple move that even a man with no hands could pull off, well im trying to learn to play Smells like teen spirit, bear in mind ive been playing mabye a month and a week, im having a lot of trouble upstrumming a palm mute, i think it may be the way im holding the pick, but everytime i go to upstrum, it either gets caught on a string, or my hand comes up and a note rings out, ive been trying to get this right for two days, i can't figure out what im doing wrong
(i know this is a easy technique and song so please don't flame, im no expert guitarist)

thanks in advance

try muting with just your fretting hand, rather the strumming hand... it's always worked for me, well just that song...

the upstrum mutes can be a little tricky at first, just practice and try to throw mutes into your stuff every now and then
but for smells like teen spirit they are fret mutes not palm mutes anyway i believe lol

on smells like they're fret mutes.
and don't worry, alternate picking while palm muting is pretty annoying to me too.

This. Trying to do that with your pick hand probably can be tricky, but that song, and a lot of faster like pop-punk songs do that.
