Lorde may not have been alive when grunge music, Kurt Cobain, and Nirvana were blowing up the charts but that didn’t stop her from honoring the legacy of Nirvana at the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony on April 10.
Lorde, 17, performed in all pink the song “All Apologies” from Nirvana’s 1991 Album In Utero. Four different female singers sang in Kurt’s place right beside the remaining members of the iconic grunge band. Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear, performed on stage also in an event that saw Kurt’s music played for the first time since his death.

Additionally, Joan Jett performed on stage to honor Nirvana by singing their classic hit “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” Joan was one of four women who were also inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame that evening.
Former Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters frontman Dave performed and spoke on stage at the induction — giving a sort of remembrance speech for Kurt, who died 20 years ago on April 5.
