Nirvana Jams Out At Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Ceremony


Kurt Cobain left Nirvana and the world far too early 20 years ago, but his soul lived on last night at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

The event took place at the fairly new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and bandmates Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear were joined by Joan Jett on the vocals in “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”

Many of the comments were critical of Joan’s performance, but given the insanely high bar set, she pulled it off very well.

Sonic Youth front-runner Kim Gordon also graced the stage in support of Nirvana, performing a cover of “Aneurysm.”

Other covers included recent song of the year Grammy winner Lorde, and Annie Clark.

Last night was also a time to let go of long-running grudges, and Courtney Love seems to have buried the hatchet so to speak.

The original members of KISS all accepted awards into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and reports say they kept it cool and classy.

After the event was over, Nirvana made it over to Saint Vitus Bar on Manhattan Ave to play a surprise show with Kim Gordon.

Other Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees included E Street Band, Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates, Linda Ronstadt, and the artist formerly known as Cat Stevens.
