Why I still love watching Nirvana Unplugged every April 8th

  • Pat Smear’s striped guitar
  • Baby faced Dave Grohl
  • All the cover songs
  • The secret electric guitar on Man Who Sold the World
  • Pennyroyal Tea (“Am I gonna do this…by myself?” — and the disastrous duet with Pat during rehearsal in the extras that explains the exchange)
  • The guy who looks like a burly Cliff Clavin in the audience
  • Screwing up the setlist to play Dumb / Polly back to back but requesting a sequencing edit for broadcast
  • Playful, sarcastic, super smart Kurt
  • On a Plain!
  • Sweet Home Alabama!!!
  • “What are they tuning, a harp?”
  • Dave Grohl red-handedly caught smoking a joint on camera in close up
  • Kurt in his swivel chair
  • The vocals on Lake of Fire
  • “Fuckin’ Nirvana”
  • “How are we supposed to play In Bloom acoustically?”
  • When Kurt slowly does the opening riff to Negative Creep while deciding if they can do it acoustically
  • Kurt’s eyes / gasp near the very end of Where Did You Sleep Last Night?
