Dave Grohl Inspires Future Nirvana

Dave Grohl Speech

Summing up 25 years of Nirvana into one speech was a feat only Dave Grohl could pull off.

Nirvana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last we and in true Grohl style his speech was a nod to aspiring bands to be the next Nirvana.

“You look up to your heroes and you shouldn’t be intimidated by them; you should be inspired by them” he said.

 “Don’t look up at the poster on your wall and think, "Fuck, I can never do that." Look at the poster on your wall and think, "Fuck, I’m going to do that!”

Grohl thanked his family and the drummers before him.

“I was the quiet one in Nirvana. I was the drummer. But most of you don’t know that I was the fifth drummer of Nirvana. For whatever reason, I got to be the luckiest person in the world and also be in Nirvana.”

Artists such as Joan Jett, Kim Gordon, St Vincent and Lorde joined following the speeches and paid tribute to the band described as defining a moment.

R.E.M front man, Michael Stipe described Nirvana as “a movement for outsiders: for the fags; for the fat girls; for the broken toys; the shy nerds; the Goth kids from Tennessee and Kentucky; for the rockers and the awkward; for the fed-up; the too-smart kids and the bullied”

“These are a few artists who rub each other the wrong way, and exactly the right way, at the right time: Nirvana.”

Standing alongside the two were Krist Novoselic, Courtney Love, Pat Smear, Kurt Cobain’s mum Wendy and sister Kim who briefly appeared to speak on the band’s induction.
