Lorde Still Freaking Out About Playing With 'True F---ing Rock Stars' Nirvana At Hall Of Fame Ceremony

St. Vincent called Thursday the 'F&$%-ing best night of my life.'

It's rare to get a chance to jam with one of the most legendary rock bands of all time. It's even rarer to get to do it when you're 17 and you were born two years after that group's singer committed suicide.

Which might explain why Lorde was still pinching herself and freaking out Thursday night after sharing the stage with surviving Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic at the 2014 [article id="1725917"]Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony[/article]

Lorde was one of four rock ladies who had the honor of singing in place of late Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain, joining leather rocker Joan Jett, former Sonic Youth bassist/singer Kim Gordon and St. Vincent during the band's set.

Vincent (born Annie Clark), 31, couldn't stop gushing about her chance to rage with the group on "Lithium," calling the set one of her career, and life, highlights.

F&$%-ing best night of my life. NIRVANA. #NIRVANA #NIRVANA

The show of female rock power thoroughly impressed a woman who knows all about making a holy noise, "Portlandia" star and former Sleater-Kinney guitarist/singer Carrie Brownstein.

My heart hurts. @KimletGordon and @st_vincent performing #nirvana at #rockandrollhalloffame.

One of the other highlights of a night when even the battling members of greasepaint light metal rockers KISS put their legendary animus behind them was the seeming peace made between Cobain's widow, Hole singer Courtney Love and longtime rival, Grohl.

The most magical part of the evening. Thank you Dave, love you. I know this made him smile up there
