Nirvana Never-Before-Seen MTV Footage Surfaces

Starting the week off right, MTV and VH1 have premiered never-before-seen Nirvana rehearsal footage. Filmed at Seattle’s Pier 48 on Dec. 13, 1993, during preparations for an MTV concert special called ‘Live and Loud,’ the unearthed footage shows the Pat Smear lineup of the band playing through ‘In Utero’ tracks ‘Radio Friendly Unit Shifter’ (watch below) and ‘Very Ape’ (above). The latter features Kurt Cobain manning the drum kit during one section.

The entire ‘Live and Loud’ special will be included in DVD form as part of the super deluxe version of the 20th anniversary reissue of ‘In Utero’ hitting stores tomorrow (Sept. 24). The remastered collection will also include B-sides, unheard demos, compilation tracks and live recordings.

‘In Utero’ wasn’t the commercial smash its predecessor, ‘Nevermind,’ was, but it’s still imprinted on many a Nirvana lover’s soul. And come tomorrow, the group’s most fervent fans can show their devotion by having the group’s smiley-face logo imprinted on their skin, as tattoo shops in Seattle, Southern California and Long Island are offering freebies to those who purchase one of the new versions of the ‘In Utero’ set, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
