Holding at #1 is pretty rare (among the top 5, I Want to Hold Your Hand has repeated). And a broad exegesis of punk and post-punk is brought to culmination in a song that both kicked off great things for rock and kicked it out of the mainstream. I'll put it this way: there has been no top ten hit since Smells Like Teen Spirit that has been more important. And that's that.
