Comparing Andy Wallace & Butch Vig Mixes - Smells Like Teen Spirit

I thought this was interesting. 2 side by side mixes of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”.
I always assumed the main release mix was Butch Vig.

It mentions, Kurt Cobain liked the original mix because it sounded less polished.
Which always bothers me, when a harder/aggressive song is too cleanly mixed…if that makes sense.
