Former Nirvana stars Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic were secretly relieved when the star-studded finale was dropped from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony earlier this month due to time constraints.

The rockers had been due to join a number of the night’s other inductees, including Bruce Springsteen’s The E Street Band, for an all-star jam session at the end of the show performing AC/DC classic “Highway To Hell.”

However, the big finale was ditched after a number of speeches over-ran, leaving Nirvana’s collaboration with pop star Lorde on “All Apologies” as the final performance of the night.

Bassist Novoselic admits he was secretly pleased the finale was axed, telling Rolling Stone, “I wasn’t into it. I love AC/DC and I love Bruce Springsteen. I grew up listening to them. But we kept saying, ‘We have the big finale. We have our finale!'”

Grohl was also unconvinced by the finale as it meant they had to learn another song for the show. He adds, “They expected Nirvana to learn that song. It’s hard enough for Nirvana to learn a (expletive) Nirvana song.”
