September 24will mark 20 years since the release of Nirvana's seminal album "Nevermind."The Seattle band, led by the late Kurt Cobain, spawned a nation of young people wearing flannel shirts and listening to grunge in the '90s. Nirvana's remaining members, KristNovoselic and Dave Grohl, will reunite for a Q&A session to be broadcast onSirius XM satellite radio — moderated by none other than "Daily Show" host JonStewart.

While Stewart's current occupation as acomedy pundit might cause some to question Sirius XM's choice of host, the New York Times pointed out that he wasan MTV employee in the '90s, so perhaps Nirvana has a dear place in his heart.

"Nevermind" producer Butch Vig will also joinNovoselic, Grohl, and Stewart for the two-hour program, which Sirius XMChannel 34 will broadcast live on September 24 at 8 p.m. Both callers and alive studio audience at the station's New York studios will have a chance toask questions.
