Nirvana, MTV Unplugged, 1993

The Nirvana exhibit will trace the band's roots from Cobain's bedroom demos up through the band's legendary MTV Unplugged performance. "A lot of people that perhaps didn't get into Nirvana because of Nevermind or before that, Unplugged really was that entry point. For a lot of people that would've once felt like, 'Punk rock is a bunch of mohawked, scary people beating the shit of other people,'" McMurray said. "Unplugged sort of distilled down those kind of Beatles-esque qualities of Nirvana and Kurt's beautiful voice, and provided an entry point for them."
