Nirvana has been inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, alongside the likes of Kiss and Beatles manager Brian Epstein.

REM’s Michael Stipe inducted the group, saying: “Nirvana tapped into a voice that was yearning to be heard.

“Nirvana were kicking against the mainstream. They spoke truth and a lot of people listened.”

Nirvana’s career was cut short by Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994. His widow, Courtney Love, attended the ceremony.

“You know, I have a big speech, but I’m not going to say it,” Courtney Love said, before hugging Kurt Cobain’s bandmates Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl.

“That’s it,” she concluded.

“I just wish Kurt was here to do this.”

Dave Grohl, Nirvana’s drummer and now frontman of rock group Foo Fighters, paid tribute to the musicians who formed the early line-ups of Nirvana, in particular drummer Chad Channing, who he singled out for his contributions to the band’s breakthrough album Nevermind.

Bass guitarist Kris Novoselic added: “Nirvana fans walk up to me every day and say thank you for the music.

“When I hear that, I think of Kurt Cobain.”
