Kiss and Nirvana Inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Apr 11, 2014

Theatrical rockers Kiss, Grunge pioneers Nirvana and troubadour Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens) were among the artists inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at a ceremony in New York Thursday.

Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, the two surviving members of Nirvana, performed with four female singers — Joan Jett, Lorde, Kim Gordon from Sonic Youth and Annie Clark from St. Vincent — stepping in for the late Kurt Cobain, Rolling Stone reported.

It was the first time the two remaining members of Nirvana performed their music together since Cobain killed himself 20 years ago.

Two of the other inductees, Kiss and Linda Ronstadt, announced ahead of the ceremony that they would not perform, while the other inductees — the E Street Band, Peter Gabriel, Islam, and Hall and Oates — graced the stage with several of their respective hits
