Posted by jhochstat on November 19, 2008

On November 19th 1993,  Nirvana records an MTV unplugged concert in New York. The show is shot in one take – imperfections and all – and is aired one month later.  Sadly it was one of the last times Kurt Cobain performed in front of a live audience.

The band played 14 songs, 12 of which were aired for MTV:

About a Girl
Come as You Are
Jesus Doesn’t Want Me for a Sunbeam (The Vaselines cover)
The Man Who Sold the World (David Bowie cover)
Pennyroyal Tea
On a Plain
Something in the Way*
Sweet Home Alabama* (Lynyrd Skynyrd tease – not played in entirety)
Plateau (Meat Puppets cover)
Oh Me* (Meat Puppets cover)
Lake of Fire” (Meat Puppets cover)
All Apologies
Where Did You Sleep Last Night (trad., Arranged by Leadbelly).
