London, April 12: US grunge band Nirvana has been inducted into the rock and Hall of Fame.
REM's Michael Stipe inducted the group, saying that the group were kicking against the mainstream, asserting that they spoke truth and many people listened, the BBC reported.
The band's career was cut short by their frontman Kurt Cobain's death in 1994. However, his widow, Courtney Love, was present in the ceremony.
Rock legends Kiss, country queen Linda Ronstadt, Brian Epstein, who guided the Beatles to stardom, and Andrew Loog Oldham, who launched the careers of the Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart and Eric Clapton were among the other inductees. (ANI)
