NIRVANA: Rock Hall Was Just A Warm Up

Nirvana's four song set at Thursday night's Rock and Roll hall of Fame induction ceremonies was just a warmup for a full show.

Rumors about the band playing a post-induction set started during the ceremony and fans started lining up at Brooklyn's Saint Vitus club -- which holds 230 people -- at about 10 p.m. After the ceremony was over, Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear hopped in a SUV and headed to the club. They went on around 2:00 a.m. and played with five different vocalists -- Joan Jett, St. Vincent's Annie Clark, Dinosaur Junior's J. Mascis, Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon and Deer Tick's John McCauley. (McCauley might have been the best qualified to lead the band, as his group has been playing all-Nirvana shows as Deervana for a few years.)
