Big news for die-hard Nirvana fans: the smashed bass guitar from the band's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" music video is reportedly up for auction.

The Independent reports that the bass will be sold by auction at Christie's in London on Nov. 29. Christie's is estimating a price of £25,000 (a little over $40,000).

Bass player Krist Novoselic bought the guitar at a local pawn shop before Kurt Cobain trashed it in the making of the music video.

Other items up for sale in the auction include Indiana Jones' whip from the movies and a high school yearbook featuring Bob Dylan (pictured as Bob Zimmerman) with a personal message from the singer.
