VIDEO: Nirvana stream Come As You Are rehearsal from MTV Unplugged In New York

Nirvana are streaming rehearsal video of their 1992 single, “Come As You Are”, from the newly-released expanded vinyl edition of “MTV Unplugged In New York.”

The footage is shared alongside the unedited, final broadcast version of the tune, which followed “Smells Like Teen Spirit” as the second track issued from “Nevermind.”

Nirvana marked the 25th anniversary of the project by expanding it with five rehearsal performances previously only available on a 2007 DVD release.

Recorded at Sony Music Studios on November 18, 1993 and first broadcast by MTV a few weeks later, the performance saw Nirvana deliver a 14-song set that mixed original tunes with tracks by David Bowie, Lead Belly, and The Vaselines, and included a guest appearance on three Meat Puppets songs by band members Cris and Curt Kirkwood.

The Unplugged package was first issued six months after the death of leader Kurt Cobain; it debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 on its way to sales of more than 5 million copies in the country and a 1996 Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album.
