Friday Mixtape: Unplugged Songs

I recently watched the HBO documentary on Kurt Cobain, Montage of Heck. It's a well-made film, offering a noisy, impressionistic window into the head of a complicated artist. But one of the things it points out is how important Nirvana's MTV Unplugged album was, as it showed their songs had reach beyond just being loud and angry, two traits which can always find an audience, even when the songs containing them are really really bad.

But that also reminded me what a great show "Unplugged" was, back when MTV did music. So I rounded up some great performances from the show, along with a couple other acoustic versions that reframed the classics for a mixtape. There's everything from Nirvana and Foreigner, to Scorpions and Jay Z.
