November 20th will see the enhanced DVD release of Nirvana’s famed MTV Unplugged performance, unedited and in its entirety, complete with previously un-aired footage (“Something In The Way” and “Oh, Me”). While Nirvana’s cover of the Meat Puppets “Oh, Me” was available on the accompanying soundtrack, the visual performance, and rehearsal outtakes, are sure to lure buyer’s holiday dollars.

As we have mentioned previously, it was this performance that turned us on to both the music of The Vaselines as well as the Meat Puppets. If you have yet to explore this seminal post-punk band from the Arizona desert – it is time to get on board. The below three tracks can be found on Meat Puppetts II (which itself has been reissued with bonus tracks), and were all covered by Cobain and company on Unplugged.

  1. i had ‘too high to die’ and thought it was the best thing ever. thanks for these tracks. just might have to pick up some more puppets.

  2. “II” is really one of the best albums ever made. Nirvana covering those songs showed how good taste those guys had. Too bad the Puppets had to be with Nirvana in order to play on the MTV. A full half hour of Puppets Unplugged would have killed. Between this and “Sound of Lies” being given star treatment i’m starting to feel like the AQDrunkard is piflering through my Top Ten of all time discs on purpose. Whats next “XO” and “Mighty Joe Moon” maybe “Too Far To Care” or “Still Feel Gone”?
