Watch the Tenacious D rocker joined by local bassist Júnior Groovador for a rendition of the iconic 1991 Nirvana track.
A video has emerged of Jack Black covering a Nirvana classic.
Tenacious D played Brazil's Rock in Rio on Saturday (28 September), where they treated fans to a rendition of the grunge band's Smells Like Teen Spirit anthem.
The performance was a duet with local artist Júnior Groovador, which came about after Jack Black shared his bass version of the track on Facebook in the Forró party music style.
Watch a clip of the moment above in a post shared by Foo Fighters fan account, Foo Fighters team, above.
See Jack Black's original post earlier this month where he asked to be put in touch with the amazing bassist here:
Tenacious D is Coming to Rio Sept 28th...can someone please put me in touch with Júnior Bass Groovador?Posted by Jack Black on Wednesday, 18 September 2019
Júnior Groovador later shared a photo with himself and the Tribute rocker, with a caption which roughly translates to: "Super groovy meeting with the super energetic star that is @jackblack Brazil x United States doing rock in Forró for the high spirits".
