The Authorized Concert Films (1993-2011)

While Nirvana only released three albums and an odds-and-sods compilation during their short time together, the past two decades have seen a treasure trove of posthumous and officially licensed Nirvana concert videos hit shelves. Two of the band's greatest live performances are readily available on DVD: Their beautiful swan song MTV Unplugged in New York and Live at Reading, which captures Nirvana's historic 1992 concert at the famed British festival.

Nirvana's legacy is also captured in the rehearsal footage DVD that accompanied 2004's With the Lights Out; the 1994 live comp Live! Tonight! Sold Out!!; the shot-on-16mm Nevermind reissue companion concert Live at the Paramount; and, most recently, a DVD of the band's long-out-of-print Live and Loud concert special that was originally broadcast on MTV to celebrate New Year's Eve 1993.
