A clip from HBO's official footage of Nirvana's induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame last month has been placed online.

Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic hailed the Nirvana reunion performances as a success, saying that the all-female frontperson line-up at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction "conjured the spirit of the band". As well as St. Vincent, Lorde, Joan Jett and Kim Gordon, formerly of Sonic Youth, joined the remaining members of Nirvana – Novoselic, drummer Dave Grohl and guitarist Pat Smear – for a special performance to mark the band's induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

Writing about the night Novoselic published a blog post in which he stated: "I feel we conjured the spirit of the band, and we could not have done that alone. This, for me, is a bittersweet notion as we all miss Kurt so much. But considering we were inducted, the show had to go on. Joan Jett was first on my list to be out front. I spoke to Dave about it and he ran with the idea of having all women lead. We felt that would be a good tribute to Kurt and what Nirvana was about."

The band followed their Hall Of Fame performance by playing an intimate show at Brooklyn's Saint Vitus where they were joined by a series of guest singers, beginning with Joan Jett, who opened the show with 'Smells Like Teen Spirit', 'Breed', 'In Bloom' and 'Territorial Pissings'. Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis, Deer Tick's John McCauley and Kim Gordon also appeared at the tiny gig, which had a capacity of 230.
