So Rad: 4 Women Fronted Nirvana At Last Night’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony

4 Women Fronted Nirvana At Last Night's Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony
Watch Lorde Sing "All Apologies"

This is awesome. Last night, Nirvana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, just days after the 20 year anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death from suicide, and when the remaining members of the band took the stage to perform, they were joined by four female rockers filling Cobain’s shoes/vocals. Joan Jett, St. Vincent, Kim Gordon and Lorde each joined bassist Krist Novoselic, drummer Dave Grohl and guitarist Pat Smear on stage to sing a song from Nirvana’s catalogue, and I have a feeling Kurt, a feminist, would have loved it. The RRHOF ceremony won’t be televised until May 31 (on HBO), but some video has already leaked of a few of the performances, including Lorde singing “All Apologies” (above). Not only that, but after the ceremony, Nirvana played a secret show at a club in Brooklyn — check out video of the band, plus Joan Jett, slaying “Smells Like Teen Spirit” after the jump!
