Nirvana has officially been voted into the Rock and Roll of Fame. The 2014 ballot marked the first time Nirvana was eligible for nomination, as its debut single “Love Buzz” was released in 1988. This year was also the second time that the public had the chance to vote alongside the artists, rock scholars and music professionals that make up the RRHOF committee.
Reached for comment, Nirvana members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl had the following to say:
“This is a great honor. Thank you to the people who nominated and voted for us. Thank you most of all to Kurt Cobain. And to everyone who’s kept Rock music going strong for 60 years and counting.”–Krist Novoselic
