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.”
Nirvana received their place in the Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility. Artists can only be considered for the honor 25 years after their first release.

Frances Bean Cobain stepped out in LA last week looking just like her late father, Kurt Cobain.
Frances Bean Cobain has clearly embraced his iconic grunge style, with her messy hair dyed pink in a look often favored by the Nirvana singer.
She finished off the look with an Iron Maiden T-shirt, skinny jeans, a Vivienne Westwood handbag and circular sunglasses.

Frances Bean Cobain outing comes as proceedings against her accused stalker Marc James Franco were suspended after he was deemed mentally unfit to stand trial.
She may also have to testify if the case does reach trial.
Marc James Franco, 23, was arrested on October 13 last year after entering Frances Bean Cobain’s Hollywood Hills home and was later charged with first degree burglary.
Frances Bean Cobain has been estranged from her mother for several years, but she broke her silence to wish her mother Courtney Love well on Christmas Day.
Courtney Love, who has made many attempts to reunite with her only daughter, made yet another entreaty on Tuesday to her 20-year-old daughter, but this time, she got a response.
“Merry Christmas Bean!! Love you more than you could ever know. Xmamma,” Courtney Love tweeted to Frances Bean Cobain.
And hours later Frances Bean Cobain responded with a succinct message that only gently poked fun at the Hole singer’s eccentric ways by referring to her mother as “kooksmcgee”.
She wrote: “@Courtney merry Christmas kooksmcgee.”

Courtney Love, rather typically, got carried away and tweeted three additional responses to her only child, all of which were ignored.
“That tweet was the best gift ever, its all I need even if it’s a dammed social network J miss that little head of yours,” Courtney Love she wrote.
“That beautiful little head, and those long legs. Oh and by the way, sorry about the second hand smoke thing re: baby pic.”
Before adding bizarrely: “But am trying these new e-cigs, the @njoyecigs so far are the best ones ive tried. Maybe they should pay us for this plug.”
When she was 17-years-old, Frances Bean Cobain got a restraining order against her mother, and went to live with other family members.
It was later revealed in legal documents that the order was granted due to domestic violence claims against Courtney Love by her daughter.
Frances Bean Cobain now lives in a $1.8 million home in the Hollywood Hills that she purchased with her trust fund set up after her father, Kurt Cobain’s, death.
The micro-blogging website clearly hasn’t banned her mother as Francis Bean Cobain recently suggested they should.
Courtney Love made a public apology to her daughter via her page earlier this year after Frances Bean Cobain asked for her to be banned.
Courtney Love is planning a film about her late husband Kurt Cobain’s life.
Courtney Love, 48, is working on either a musical or a movie about the lives of her and her late Nirvana singer husband, who committed suicide in 1994.
Sam Lutfi, who claims to be her co-manager, said: “[Courtney Love and I] are currently working on a possible motion picture or Broadway musical based on the Nirvana catalogue, based on her life and Kurt Cobain’s. She’s an accomplished actress.”
Sam Lutfi made his claims in a Los Angeles court, where he is suing former client Britney Spears’ parents for libel and breach of contract.
A source close to Courtney Love confirmed the movie plans, telling the New York Daily News newspaper: “She’s been talking about doing a movie or play about her life with Kurt for a long time.
“It’s been her dream to get her side of the story out.”

However, the source also added: “So far, nothing has materialized,” from Courtney’s ideas and she’s “never made any serious actions to do it”.
Courtney Love’s acting career includes appearing in The People Vs. Larry Flynt in 1996, 200 Cigarettes in 1999 and Straight to Hell Returns in 2010.
Many films have been made about and inspired by Kurt Cobain since his death, including Last Days by Gus van Sant, a lose fictionalization based on what the rocker’s final days may have been like, and documentary Kurt and Courtney by Nick Broomfield, which explored the theory Kurt could actually have been murdered.
Frances Bean Cobain stepped out on Friday with a grungy hairstyle reminiscent of her dad.
The daughter of Nirvana legend Kurt Cobain was seen walking through an airport in Los Angeles with pink hair as she channelled the famous rocker.
Frances Bean Cobain, 20, looked quite the rocker as she walked through Los Angeles International Airport with her eye-catching locks, sunglasses, denim jacket, leggings and boots.
Dying her hair the cotton candy hue is certainly an apt tribute to the Smells Like Teen Spirit rocker, who shot himself dead in April 1994.

Kurt Cobain wore his hair in shades of red and pink for much of 1992 up until she was born, having dyed it for an appearance on Saturday Night Live.
Frances Bean Cobain, whose mother is Hole singer Courtney Love, was flying out of California, and looked in fantastic shape as she made her way through the departure lounge.
The budding artist has previously spoke out to highlight the difference between herself and her famous parents.
Describing her style, she said: “I don’t like to look sloppy. I’m a girlie-girl.
“I prefer when [my mom is a] more classy starlet. I don’t really like her hard-metal stuff, or when she doesn’t brush her hair.”
