Pearl Jam was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Friday a speech from recent Stern Show studio visitor David Letterman, who was a last-minute replacement for an ill Neil Young. While the speech itself was a fitting tribute, an audience member at the ceremony made a point to add a little Stern Show flavor to the occasion.

“Hit ’em with the Hein,” someone from the crowd yelled, marking the popular catch phrase’s latest foray into the public eye. Check out the clip of the speech published to YouTube (below) and listen for the Stern Show shoutout at 10:26.

The 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony airs April 29 at 8 p.m. on HBO. Tune in to see whether the “Hein” makes it to air.
