5. Nirvana - 'The Man Who Sold The World'
Until Nirvana taped their MTV Unplugged special in late 1993, "The Man Who Sold The World" was known only as one of David Bowie's earliest hits. After Kurt Cobain's suicide the song became his, and the tale of a man who had the world and gave it away seemed eerily prophetic. When Bowie revived the song on his 1995 tour with Nine Inch Nails many of the young fans in the audience had no idea it was his song, assuming he was doing a special Nirvana tribute.
