After their performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony, Joan Jett and Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth again joined the surviving members of Nirvana again for a ferocious post-show last night that continued into the wee hours at a tiny Brooklyn club.

Jett sang “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” while Gordon took over lead vocals for the late Kurt Cobain on “Aneurysm,” just as they had during the induction. They were backed by Nirvana’s Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, along with their former touring guitarist Pat Smear.

Also on hand were J. Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.), Annie Clark of St. Vincent and John McCauley – whose band Deer Tick occasionally perform as a Nirvana tribute band named Deervana. The supergroup reportedly performed 19 songs in all, not wrapping up at the 350-seat Saint Vitus club until 4AM The complete setlist, as reported by Brooklyn Vegan, is below.

Nirvana, which lost Cobain to suicide 20 years ago, joined performers Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates, Cat Stevens and the E Street Band as the Rock Hall’s 2014 class were honored earlier at the nearby Barclays Center. Kiss and Linda Ronstadt were also inducted, but did not take the stage.
