Joan Jett is reportedly set to jam onstage with the surviving members of Nirvana on Thursday night as the grunge rockers are inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame.

Kurt Cobain's band will be part of the Class of 2014 inducted into the Ohio music museum during a ceremony in New York, and remaining rockers Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic are expected to reunite for a special performance after the bassist dropped a big hint about rehearsing for the gig on Twitter.com last week.

Now rumours suggest Jett will be joining them onstage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn after a photo of instruments belonging to Grohl, Novoselic and Nirvana musician Pat Smear was posted on Instagram.com alongside what appeared to be Jett's distinctive Gibson Melody Maker guitar.

The group will be inducted by former R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe, and other reports indicate he could also be standing in for late frontman Cobain alongside Jett.

The stars have not commented on the claims, but Jett and Grohl are no strangers - the Foo Fighters star previously teamed up with the I Love Rock 'n' Roll hitmaker for a U.S. TV performance on the Late Show with David Letterman.

Nirvana will join KISS, Peter Gabriel, Linda Ronstadt and Hall & Oates among this year's inductees.
