The Comedy Central star will host the two-hour event on 24th September 2010. It will feature fans of the Seattle group, as well as drummer Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Butch Vig, the producer behind their classic album.

Grohl has since found success as lead singer of Foo Fighters, now one of the biggest bands in the world. To tie in with the anniversary, SiriusXM will also launch the all-Nirvana channel 'Nevermind Radio' on September 23rd 2011, which will run until 28th September.
