“At the night’s end, Nirvana—who had suffered more than any other inductee, and had complained about nothing—brought everybody to a higher plane. Hearing Nirvana there felt much the way hearing Nirvana had in the first place, circa ‘Bleach’ and ‘Nevermind.’ It was the sound of joy, rage, crisis, calm, love, vitality: the reason we love rock and roll.”
