"Nirvana Unplugged finally coming on DVD"


Nirvana's Nov. 18, 1993, "MTV Unplugged" taping will make its DVD debut Nov. 20 via Universal Music Enterprises, according to report. "MTV Unplugged in New York" was released Nov. 1, 1994, on CD, the first Nirvana product to appear following Kurt Cobain's suicide that April.

The DVD will include the songs "Something In The Way" and "Oh Me," which did not appear on the original MTV broadcast. The DVD also sports four tracks from the band's soundcheck and previously unreleased behind-the-scenes footage.

Nirvana's "Unplugged" date is arguably the most famous in the long-running series, as the band eschewed most of its hits in favor of lesser-known album tracks and obscure covers (particularly, three Meat Puppets songs). The live version of "About a Girl" reached No. 1 on Billboard's Modern Rock tally.

The tracklisting is as follows:

01. About A Girl
02. Come As You Are
03. Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam
04. The Man Who Sold The World
05. Pennyroyal Tea
06. Dumb
07. Polly
08. On A Plain
09. Something In The Way
10. Plateau
11. Oh Me
12. Lake of fire

13. All Apologies
14. Where Did You Sleep Last Night
