Joan Jett sang “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, Kim Gordon took on “Aneurysm”, St. Vincent performed “Lithium” and Lorde covered “All Apologies” with bassist Krist Novoselic, drummer Dave Grohl and guitarist Pat Smear.

Earlier, the band had been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Michael Stipe, who said, “Nirvana were artists in every sense of the word. Nirvana tapped into a voice that was yearning to be heard. Nirvana were kicking against the mainstream. They spoke truth and a lot of people listened.”

Grohl and Novoselic gave speeches upon accepting their awards, along with Wendy Cobain and Courtney Love, who buried the hatchet with her husband’s bandmates, embracing them for a hug.
