‘Nirvana’ was joined by Joan Jette, Lorde, St. Vincent, Kim Gordon, Deer Tick and more last night.

Nirvana (With Special Guests) Played Barclays AND Saint Vitus Last Night

For a few brief hours, Nirvana was reunited last night. Kurt Cobain obviously wasn't there, but Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear had some pretty incredible guest stars front the band in his place at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony last night: Joan Jett, Kim Gordon, Annie Clark (St. Vincent) and Lorde.

That's right, Lorde. It got all Royal at the Barclays Center, and based on the video, I wouldn't be opposed to a Nirvana spin-off band between Lorde, Grohl, Novoselic and Smear. Sign me up.

It was a star-studded affair at Barclays Center for Nirvana's induction, but the reunion didn't stop there. The Nirvana All-Stars took the party to Saint Vitus, a small metal bar/venue in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Lorde didn't make the trip, but filling in for her were John Macauley (of Deer Tick and Deervana, his Nirvana cover band) and J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr.

Translation: it was a fucking party last night, and Nirvana was at the epicenter. Check out video/images/set lists below via Uproxx and Brooklyn Vegan and rock out like it's 1993/2014.

Now the only question that remains is which Nirvana "reunion" band is the best: with Sir Paul McCartney, or the assorted female-fronted groups from last night?
