    Rehearsal Footage from Nirvana's "Unplugged in New York"

    This is one of my favorite albums ever, which I fully expect to get lambasted by most of you for. That said:

    Eleven minutes in, this is rough as hell. Kurt looks, and sounds, high as shit, the band seems to be still trying to pull it together, and you feel like the wheels could fall off at any moment. Listening to this, had I not known the album that came out of the actual concert so well, I'd have expected this to be a disaster.

    EDIT - and yet, as this goes on... Moments of "The Man Who Sold The World" are pretty rough, but moments you feel like something's coming together, and they just might pull it off...

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    Definitely one of my favourite albums. Nirvana are a top 5 band for me. They're the band that really made me dive into music when I was about 12.

    AIC's unplugged show was fucking tragic too, due to Layne's being high as fuck on whatever-the-fuck. They had to restart at least one song that I know of cause he forgot the lyrics

    This is really an amazing album. The internal struggles of the band really show through in the performance. The raw emotion displayed in these already resonant songs is breathtaking, it both tragic and triumphant at the same time. It's poignant that the stage was designed to look like a funeral, given the events that would unfold soon after. The set list choice was clearly a bold move, as was performing with the Meat Puppets. I also think there's never been a finer rendition of In the Pines ever committed to tape.

    Truly, a ground breaking album.
