Looks and sounds like the not-so-secret “secret”that Joan Jett will indeed perform with Nirvana at this evening’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Ceremony. Take a listen! (Wait…look at Dave Grohl curled up like a toddler in The Naughty Chair!) Okay, now go listen.
Alternative Nation was roaming the halls of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn in advance of tonight’s festivities and captured the audio in the player above from the Nirvana rehearsal. Though not visible, the voice singing ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ does sound an awful lot like Joan Jett. It will mark the first time the members of Nirvana play the song live since Kurt Cobain’s death 1994.
Is there any reason HBO can’t air this thing LIVE instead of editing it within inch of its life? We have to wait til May 31, for eff’s sake.
