Classic rock may get a makeover at the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, where reports indicate Joan Jett is poised to front Nirvana's performance.

The Hall of Fame induction is set to take place Thursday. HuffPost Entertainment contacted one of Jett's reps to confirm the rumor and will update this post upon receiving a response.

The speculation arose when drummer Dave Grohl posted an Instagram photo to the Foo Fighters' account that features, according to Stereogum, Krist Novoselic’s bass, Pat Smear’s Fender Stratocaster, Grohl’s drum set and what appears to be Jett’s Melody Maker. (We guess that means original bandmate Chad Channing won't be part of the lineup after all.) If this conjecture proves true, it will quash the rumor that R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe, a close friend of Kurt Cobain, will sub as the group's lead singer. (Regardless, Stipe will preside over Nirvana's induction.)

Jett and Grohl have collaborated together previously, including on a track from the "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" singer's 2013 album "Unvarnished." They also presented an award together at last year's American Music Awards.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction takes place at Brooklyn's Barclays Center and will be telecast May 31 on HBO. In addition to Nirvana, other 2014 inductees include Cat Stevens, Daryl Hall and John Oates, KISS, Linda Ronstadt, Peter Gabriel and The E Street Band.
