It literally smells like teen spirit.

Thursday night in Brooklyn, the surviving members on Nirvana reunited, just four days after the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death, to celebrate their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The band invited several guests to join them on stage, filling in for Cobain, including Joan Jett, Kim Gordon, St. Vincent’s Annie Clark and Lorde, who took on the group's "All Apologies."

R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe introduced the band, and thanked them for being an "outsider voice for the fags, the fat, the fed-up and the bullied." Cobain's widow Courtney Love also made a brief speech.

While Nirvana may have broken up two years before Lorde was (allegedly) born, she does a pretty excellent job here. Following the induction ceremony, Nirvana played a surprise show at St. Vitus in Greenpoint, joined by Jett, Gordon, Clark and Dinosaur Jr.'s J. Mascis.

This year's Hall of Fame inductees also include KISS, The E Street Band, Peter Gabriel, Yusuf Islam (a.k.a. Cat Stevens) and Hall and Oates.
