Lorde, St. Vincent, and More Honor Nirvana at 2014 Rock Hall Induction
4/15/2014 2:45:00 PM
This past Thursday, April 10th, Nirvana got recognized in one of the biggest ways possible: they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
REM's Michael Stipe inducted the trio and Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic were joined on stage by Kurt Cobain's mom, sisters, and widow Courtney Love (who shared a hug with Grohl and Novoselic, despite previous beef) for acceptance speeches.
After speech time, the two remaining Nirvana members performed an awesome four-song set, with each tune helmed by a different female vocalist.
First was "Smells Like Teen Spirit," with rock queen Joan Jett at the forefront:
Then "Aneurysm," with Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon:
St. Vincent took the mic for a cover of "Lithium":
And finally, Lorde jammed with Grohl and Novoselic to "All Apologies":
Here's a pic of the four rad ladies together for good measure:
Bonus cool induction: Coldplay's Chris Martin inducted Peter Gabriel ...

New Music from Bleachers and Cherub On-Air

Keep an ear out for more new music on-air. Here are a couple of tunes from Bleachers and Cherub to start your day.
Bleachers - "I Wanna Get Better"
Does the guy in Bleachers look familiar? For those of you who don't know, that's Jack Antonoff from Fun. Bleachers was originally formed as a side project from Jack while Fun was on the road. But Bleachers was officially announced as a "band" (which only consists of Jack) and the first single "I Wanna Get Better" is playing on 101X now. Keep an eye out for an album coming out this spring.
And check out this uncut interview with Jack during SXSW when he stopped by our Live Broadcast to talk about Bleachers.
Cherub - "Doses and Mimosas"
Cherub consists of Jordan, Jason and a lot of electro-pop. "Doses and Mimosas" got the group a lot of attention and was ...
Pics from the Arcade Fire Meet & Greet, Arena Show

Arcade Fire made their Austin stop on the Reflektor tour last week and we've got some pics! A few lucky ducks even won Meet & Greet passes because they were listening to 101X on Free Ticket Friday.
Check out the pictures from the concert (including giant plaster heads and Win Butler in a cowboy hat) and the photos from the Meet & Greet (including fans in fancy dress).
Some of you may already know this, but Arcade Fire sometimes like to put on smaller shows under the secret names. After their gig out at the Austin 360 Amphitheatre last Thursday, they played late at The Continental Club under the name of Phi Slamma Jamma. If anyone made it out to that show, let us know!
