Default Band with Best Unplugged Set.

Its one thing to go on stage with a wall of amps behind you, but it takes some real gusto to go on acoustic. What band, in your opinion, has the best unplugged performance? My personal favorite is KISS. While I'm not a huge KISS fan, they do amazing unplugged.

meh. It had a few songs that really worked, and more that just came across as forced.

"Nutshell" "Down in a Hole" and "Over Now" are the 3 main highlights. The rest is good, but not great. a few really awful versions as well kill it, such as "Rooster", "Would", "Brother" and "Killer is Me"... the rest worked better in their original format already.

What made Nirvana's great was that they didn't just try and play the hits, and made it unique and more memorable as a result. The only song on it I thought didn't really work for me was "On a Plain", but the rest did them justice.

I'll say Daft Punk on condition they finally grow the balls to do it.

Nirvana unplugged is great, just not as good as AIC, to me. I think AIC is the better band all around.

Nirvana's was best in my opinion, but the only others I have heard were Alice In Chains and Lauryn Hill, although I hear they did a Rap one, with De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest and a few others. That sounds great.

It would be very close between Nirvana and Alice In Chains. Both did a great job.

Both are great in their own right. I think Layne's lyrics were more bleak and depressing... Kurt's were... well.... more like the ramblings of an insane junkie, never really following a specific pattern.

I do love AIC, and their unplugged had it's moments of greatness.... just do yourself a favor, and never watch it on LSD. Believe me, it is frightening.
