Nirvana is reuniting, with Paul McCartney replacing Kurt Cobain.
No, my brain didn't just fall out of my head.
McCartney will play with the surviving members of Nirvana at the 12.12.12 concert for victims of Superstorm Sandy on Wednesday night, according to the U.K. publication The Guardian.
I don't think McCartney has smelled teen spirit in a long, long time.
McCartney will join Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl, bassist Krist Novoselic, and Foo Fighters guitarist Pat Smear on stage in New York to play a new song after secretly working with the band. A spokesman confirmed that Grohl recently asked McCartney to come along to "jam with some mates".
The former Beatle suggested they "just make something up" and found himself playing with Grohl, Novoselic, and Smear, who toured with Nirvana for the last six months of the band's career.
Kurt Cobain took his own life in April 1994.
McCartney said: "I didn't really know who they were. They are saying how good it is to be back together. I said: 'Whoa? You guys haven't played together for all that time?'
"And somebody whispered to me: 'That's Nirvana. You're Kurt.' I couldn't believe it."
Paul McCartney: Grunge God.
The Rolling Stones, Jon Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and Kanye West will also play at the 12.12.12 concert for victims of Superstorm Sandy at Madison Square Garden in New York.
