Nirvana Rehearsal Audio Leaks Ahead of Rock Hall Induction Performance

Subscribe to Loudwire on

There’s now even more credence given to the rumor that Joan Jett will be joining the surviving members of Nirvana tonight (April 10) at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony tonight.

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.

This follows the photo┬áposted on Nirvana’s Facebook earlier this week of an instrument set-up that showed what appeared to be Jett’s guitar amidst Dave Grohl‘s drum set, Krist Novoselic‘s bass and Pat Smear‘s guitar.

Meanwhile, Novoselic tweeted a new photo to his followers in advance of tonight’s ceremony. It shows the restless members of Nirvana and their extended friends hanging out in a room with the caption, “Glamorous backstage life.”

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony takes place tonight, with an edited version of the festivities airing on HBO on May 31.
