The internet is blowing up with reports that surviving members of Nirvana will be hitting the stage to perform songs with Paul McCartney tonight at the 12/12/12 Hurricane Sandy benefit in New York City. The source of the rumor is the British rag The Sun, who is reporting that the surviving members of Nirvana (David Grohl, Krist Novoselic, along with Pat Smear) will be playing songs with Paul McCartney on vocals.

According to the report McCartney called up Grohl who invited him to come jam with some friends. He did and reportedly didn't even realize WHO he was playing with. A "source" reported to the Sun:

He [McCartney] said: “I didn’t really know who they were. They are saying how good it is to be back together. I said ‘Whoa? You guys haven’t played together for all that time?

“And somebody whispered to me ‘That’s Nirvana. You’re Kurt.’ I couldn’t believe it.”

The full report (with the most ridiculous picture ever)is posted here.

The Hurricane Sandy benefit at Madison Square Garden is also expected to feature a collaboration between Eddie Vedder and Roger Waters (Vedder/Waters officially confirmed the collaboration via Twitter last night). Other acts include The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, The Who, and more. The concert begins at 7:30 pm ET and will stream live on the net (via a Fuse feed).

UPDATE: According to reports McCartney will NOT be performing Nirvana songs with the band (though it's possible Nirvana songs may be performed WITHOUT McCartney). Krist Novoselic confirmed via Twitter that they will be performing a new song (described as heavy - "Helter Skelter" meets "Scentless Apprentice") with McCartney. The Sun has also modified their original report to read that McCartney will join the ex-Nirvana members to perform a new song.

UPDATE: Courtney Love has weighed in on tonight's performance and told TMZ she is "not amused" after hearing about McCartney's involvement.
