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

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

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

Yuseph Ali : So good to see Dave on 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.

flaming hot cheetos : 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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

Why so serious? : can still feel the fuckin power of daves drumming after all these years. love it!

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.

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

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

OuterSpace : I feel like young spirit got back into Krist

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

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

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.

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

thomas dolan : 25 years later, Kurt you are loved and missed. Your legacy will always live on. Miss you brother.

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

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!!!!!

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

Coltallic : She actually sounds a lot like Kurt Cobain, like a female Kurt. She has rasp like Kurt did.

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.

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.


Daimon Clarke : The reflection in my screen looks like the guy sitting in my bed watching Joan Jett and Nirvana play Smells Like Teen Spirit.

John Martin Cantorne : Oh no! Dave punishing the drums again 😢 Edit: Where are the psychedelic blinking lights and the screw up guitar solo?

Lynn Wright : Ha....Pat played the f###ing guitar solo!! Don't think I've ever seen him do that. I love that guy!

Josh Caudill : Joan Jett was 100% the right choice for this. God this is awesome
