Recorded just six months before Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994, MTV Unplugged in New York became the most successful of the grunge group’s posthumous albums, selling 5 million copies in the U.S. by 1997. An acoustic concert that played like a laid-back hangout session with fans, the album was the last recorded before Cobain’s heartbreaking suicide. His death shattered the band but did little to dim its popularity. In 1996, Unplugged won a Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album, and it was ranked 311 on Rolling Stone‘s 2003 list of greatest albums of all time.
