The surviving members of Nirvana teamed up with Paul McCartney during a Seattle show last weekend

They’re at it again. On Friday (July 19), the surviving members of Nirvana teamed up with Paul McCartney on stage during the encore of McCartney’s show in Seattle.

Drummer Dave Grohl, bass player Krist Novoselic and guitarist Pat Smear tiptoed onto the stage at Safeco Field and rocked out to “Cut Me Some Slack,” the same tune they performed together for Grohl’s Sound City documentary. Watch some footage of the performance below.

The fun didn’t stop there. The Nirvana members and McCartney went on to perform a handful of Beatles songs, including “The End,” “Get Back” and the Little Richard cover “Long Tall Sally,” according to Rolling Stone.

Novoselic tweeted following the stint, stating, “Thank you @PaulMcCartney for a great show and for having us play with you all.”

Last December, the surviving members of Nirvana and McCartney performed together for the first time at the “12-12-12 — The Concert for Sandy Relief” benefit show in New York City for the victims for Hurricane Sandy.
