The band’s career was cut short by Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994. His widow, Courtney Love, attended the ceremony.

“You know, I have a big speech, but I’m not going to say it,” she said, before hugging Cobain’s bandmates Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl.

“That’s it,” she concluded. “I just wish Kurt was here to do this.”
