Mehrunes Dagon : That dead empty spot on the stage looks like Kurt Cobain

flyinglittleducks : I love that Krist mentioned how Joan was not inducted, and then the following year she finally was!

they call me crybaby : Welcome in the comment section 60% the singer from Foo Fighters looks like the drummer from Nirvana 20% what happened to Krist's hair? 10% Joan Jett looks like the singer from Joan Jett 10% RIP Kurt

bf __ : Teen spirit may be the most overplayed Nirvana song but goddamn it stands the test of time.

kilerkai : this drummer looks like the singer from foo fighters

Rainbow Bridge : I can imagine 47 year old Kurt standing there laughing playing the song.

Abbey Rose : I’m glad that they brought out someone like Joan Jett to stand in for Kurt, especially since she’s a woman and Kurt would’ve loved that

Adam Kendall : Yeah, Krist and Pat are up there...but Dave continues to steal the show for me! He puts so much passion into beating the ever-loving-hell outta those drums!

Alex4Lolz : You can really see Dave Grohl put all his passion into this. It's like he's letting out all his pent up anger over Kurt's death on those drums. Overall great guy.

Ripley : Joan Jett looks like the singer from Joan Jett

Mr. R. : Imagining this...Frances Cobain singing smells like teen spirit with Dave and Krist would be awesome.

SnazzyBoxx : Joan Jett had that raspiness in her voice which made her the perfect candidate for this song

Sam Hibron : Dave Grohl on the drums is one of the greatest things I'll ever see in life

Tassy McCormick : Damn. That was awesome. Dave on drums again, Crist killin it on bass, Pat Smear having the time of his life, then, ladies and gents Joan Fuckin Jett.

Stoneblazer : Damn...Dave hits those drums with the same passion from over twenty years ago. The man has to be the best drummer of his generation.

Love thy neighbor and his wife : “Our little group has always been and always will until the end...”

Anthony Sclafani : Joan Jett: so influential, yet so underrated

Jane Doe : His mom is fake. She says he was an angel and kicked him out when he was a kid cuz she couldn't handle him.

HMC27 : Pat Smear covering Kurt’s solo for him. 😢

Yuseph Ali : So good to see Dave on those drums!

Adi : This sounds like smells like teen spirit

LadyTaraJo : Joan Jett did the it damn well but..... nobody can do it quite like the original. RIP Kurt Cobain. You will be missed. :(

Derrick Lake : i know everyone that was a teenager back then or in there early twenties back then had a very emotional time watching this!!!! i really had a hard time and i never met any of them powerful!!!!!

shaishai : Damn Dave is so fine banging on those drums with all that passion..

Waffer : I feel like young spirit got back into Krist

Fackunator : At first (say 8+ months) I disliked so much this version because I though Joan Jett's vocals didn't fit to the song, but now that I know Jett's work and heard a shit ton of her songs, I absolutely love this version

Xerathon : Wait was Pat Smear in Nirvana?

KJ Singh : We can't imagine how hard it was for Krist and Dave for performing this song without Kurt. Nirvana will live forever !!

Carolina Z : Krist Novoselic looks like the bassist from Nirvana...

Stephanie Rodriguez : Although Kirst and Dave have already said they hate this song, they look like they loved playing it here.

AV87 : At first I wasn't sure about her singing this but by the end she sounded a perfect sub

Renier Aripal : Why Joan Jett??? MY LIBIIDOOOOOOWWWWWWWW HELLLOWWWW HOW LOOOWW Sounds awful and very bad

lluminAscent : By far my most favorite of the women i've seen performing on here! Kurt must be proud :)

Kyle Walter : there are two things missing : Kurt and dancing Tony

Austin Adams : The bottom line is that Joan Jett has the soul for this. She has so much rock in her veins it's not even funny. And she tours constantly. I've never seen an artist stay on the road for as long as Joan Jett has. She must have played billions of dates. She lives to do this. And even though she is universally respected, she still manages to live a quiet lifestyle. Not a tabloid celebrity at all. I can't help but admire her humility.

Professor Marius Rodriguez 1965 : I wonder what would happen if Axl was the one they choose? hmmm.....

Renata Montanha : No one can replace Kurt Cobain

CThuC0 : The way Krist and Dave look at each other @4:08 has me HOLDING BACK TEARS. It must have felt so overwhelming for them.

Shannon Fields : Who would dislike this video?? This was heart wrenching and wonderful to watch at the same time. 💔💔💔

Si Y : How could you be in that audience and not be moshin though!!?

Anthony Sclafani : 3:23 Is that Matt Sweeney from Guitar Moves?

PenacHo 13 : It would be epic if they broke the guitars and the drums at the end

Seth Thomas : Much respect to Dave Grohl. Damn the guy is not only musicly talented but respects those that have gone before, seems like a nice guy too.

dave latumbo : Pat smear is awesome. Im a pat smear fan!

Dane Greenwood : If you flushed the comments of foo references there would be 10 left Minus mine too....

Paul Donovan : I remember watching this show. Absolutely awesome. Most Rock and Roll HOF induction shows are like geritol advertisements. Nirvana raised the bar ...

historias de terror y mas : el grunge siempre lo chevare en mi 💓pues es muy importante para mi

Jacob Stephens : Most toxic fans are Nirvana fans (the ones who likes like 3 songs, which there's alot of em) and Slayer fans. Straight Facts.

blueangel0925 : Personally, I think it was this performance by Joan Jett that got her into the Hall of Fame. It only took another year for her to be inducted.

Nick Gaver : Joder no dió el kilo esos zapatos son muy dificiles de llenar ...
