This year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction paid epic tribute to Nirvana, and the band's late frontman Kurt Cobain, by bringing together artists from the old and new guard.

In addition to the surviving members of Nirvana, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, Lorde, Joan Jett, Kim Gordon, and St. Vincent's Annie Clark took the stage, each putting their own spin on a Nirvana classic. Lorde, the youngest performer by far and away, impressed in a bubblegum-pink suit and sports bra ensemble and covered the band's 1993 anthem "All Apologies," belting it out with every ounce of her signature teen spirit angst. Very Cobain, indeed.

It's fitting that a troupe of rock 'n' roll's female heavyhitters paid homage to Cobain, who had a feminist agenda throughout his career, denouncing sexism in his ideals, song lyrics, and public interviews.

The event, which also celebrated fellow inductees Kiss, Hall and Oates, Cat Stevens, and more, will air on HBO on May 31. Watch Lorde's performance, below:
