The surviving members of Nirvana reunited this week for a special set at charity organisation Art of Elysium's Heaven Is Rock and Roll benefit show in Hollywood.

Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear performed on Saturday evening, tearing through five classic tracks with help from St. Vincent, Beck and Grohl's 13-year-old daughter Violet. 

Opening with St. Vincent fronting the 1991 single Lithium, the band followed with In Bloom with Beck taking over lead vocals. Then came Been a Son, with Beck introducing the track saying: "Pretty good mosh pit right here. Pretty good. I was in the most insane mosh pit of my life in this room. I remember being lifted off the floor for the entire show. It was so packed in. Then I walked out of the mosh pit, and my hands were bleeding, and I didn't know why. And the band was Nirvana."

Violet Grohl then joined the band as lead vocalist for Heart-Shaped Box

The group then rounded out the set with Beck fronting for a cover of David Bowie's The Man Who Sold The World
