Darkness is something both the Batman superhero films and Nirvana (and grunge, really) have in common. The latter is currently experiencing a viral surge for one of their most popular non-singles, too. Nirvana’s “Something In The Way” is already one of the band’s most-loved tracks by fans, and now many newcomers to Nirvana are experiencing the song for the first time – thanks to the very popular new Batman movie.
According to ScreenRant and reported by Spotify themselves, the song experienced an approximate 1200% spike in Spotify streams on the platform, managing to land itself in Spotify’s Viral 50. Said chart tracks the most viral songs going at the moment. In fact, the song is the band’s latest to reach over 100 million streams on Spotify – an achievement for any band or musician, to be sure. The movie is even getting high grades, with Twilight megastar Robert Pattinson proving he can tackle roles you wouldn’t expect.
