Seminal Grunge band Nirvana and Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band were among the latest inductees to the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last night.
Inducted in their first year of eligibility (25 years must have passed since an act’s debut album for them to be considered), Nirvana were the symbol for disaffected youth in the 90s until Kurt Cobain took his own life in 1994. The remaining members of the band were on hand to perform and pay emotional tribute to Cobain at the ceremony.
Also, 15 years after the man himself was enrolled, Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band were honoured with a spot of their own.
The annual ceremony, which honours some of the foremost names in rock music, also saw Kiss and Peter Gabriel awarded.
