's final record "In Utero
" and grunge veterans Pearl Jam
, Rolling Stone
editorial decided to give Miley Cyrus
the advantage and place the controversial young pop star on the front cover of upcoming issue, Alternative Nation
The Nirvana feature piece consists of an interview with the band's former drummer Dave Grohl
and his memories of final conversation with late frontman Kurt Cobain
, while the Pearl Jam article revolves around vocalist Eddie Vedder

regarding "rock is dead"
comments in one of the ceremony reports, while Queens of the Stone Age
frontman Josh Homme
took a quick jab at Cyrus, announcing a "twerk-free" show
at the same venue.
The same source also included footage of Miley's 2011 "Smells Like Teen Spirit
" live performance along with a snarky question: "Could she be an early candidate to front Nirvana at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?"
