Nothing against her, but I think when you’re doing a tribute to someone that’s dead, generally it should be the person’s peer. Lorde is not Kurt Cobain’s peer. No matter if she killed the performance or not, I just don’t think it’s appropriate.

Watch Kim Gordon perform “Aneurysm” with Nirvanafrom the HBO telecast of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

Had to post this one, too: St. Vincent (Annie Clark) performs “Heart-Shaped Box” with Nirvana at the after-party.

Frances [Bean] went to Dave [Grohl]’s house and had dinner and made up her mind about him on her own. I’m not gonna speak for her, but basically… he’s Dave. And that’s not my problem; I’m not in his band, and I don’t have to deal with it. But Pat [Smear] and the Cobains have been really close. Pat’s been really close to our family.

The surviving members of Nirvana will be fronted by St. Vincent, Lorde, Kim Gordon, and Joan Jett during tonight’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Read more.

Not sure if this is true, but it would be pretty crazy. (Yet still no PJ Harvey!)

The audio snippet of Joan Jett and the surviving members of Nirvana practicing “Smells Like Teen Spirit” has been yanked, but you can still enjoy Krist Novoselic's twitpic of the “glamorous backstage life.”

UPDATE: Video has been pulled. If you’d come here earlier you would’ve heard the Joan Jett–fronted Nirvana rehearse “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” Recorded somewhere in the bowels of Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, the site of this evening’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. (Video was courtesy of AlternativeNation.net.)

Nirvana with a little bit of Joan Jett.

That’s Joan Jett’s guitar in the middle, suggesting she may be performing with Nirvana at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony (or maybe on tomorrow evening’s Tonight Show?). Thoughts? Personally, I would love to see PJ Harvey perform with them.
