Nirvana - MTV Unplugged In New York
I like the 'Meat Puppet' cover songs. The cover version of David Bowie's song 'The Man Who Sold the World' isn't very good though.

I've just been listening to the BBC iPlayer of a couple of the 6Music shows "Heroes or Zeroes - Rock Icons Dismantled" , hosted by Mark Radcliffe.
