Just a few days after the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death, Nirvana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last night, and the surviving inductees, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, performed some of the band’s biggest hits. In a year that saw only one female inductee—Linda Ronstadt—Nirvana’s rotating roster of musicians who stood in for Cobain included solely women: Joan Jett, Lorde, Annie Clark of St. Vincent, and Kim Gordon.

Full footage of Gordon’s performance doesn’t appear to be online yet, though Stereogum does have a snippet of it from Vine. You can check out the rest of the performances below.
