Nirvana really killed it, even just for their cover of "Where Did You Sleep Last Night."

I have also really been loving this recently:



Need to see the rest of it.... I know it won't match Nirvana's.... but I still love Chris.

that one was painful, haha.

but this is good for an occasional (awkward) laugh:



Korn was always dreadful from day 1, but this managed to make them even worse to my ears.

I feel sorry for Robert Smith and Simon Gallup for being part of this freak show.

Haha I think it'd be better on shrooms, considering I tend to have dark trips. But then again, it could be even scarier. It is frightening. I love how they achieve such a dark sound. I don't know how they do it. They were great. Even the drumming had this real mellow bleakness about it.

But what made Nirvana's best I believe is they did not follow the usual Unplugged format.. you know, come out play your hits and leave, even if they sound awful (*cough*Pearl Jam*cough*). They took chances, played obscure covers, had an obscure (at least to mainstream audiences) band join them on stage and play even more obscure covers of that bands...

Doing that made their episode an experience, and something unique.

I hear ya. But to me, what made AIC unplugged so good is they showed how damn versatile they were. They tend to do that on record as well, in my opinion.

You leave Pearl Jam out of this.

But I also think the difference was:

Kurt Cobain on Unplugged: foreshadowed his own death. So many subtle hints of death. The star gazer lilies, virtually every cover relating to death in some way.... just a few. Many did not see his death coming.

Layne Staley on Unplugged: looked dead already, second he took off his glasses (that was the scariest LSD moment actually watching it for me, seeing him take off the glasses and seeing his corpse eyes). Many saw his death coming.

That gave the AIC one the most darkness. When i saw it I said, he is already dead man... he shows no life, he looks like he is ready to collapse at any second.
