Release Nirvana's Unplugged in New York Performance onto DVD sign now

On November 18, 1993, arguably the best MTV Unplugged performance ever, aired for the first time. It was Nirvana's unplugged performance which for the first time, and sadly the last, gave Nirvana fans an intimate look at the one of most influential bands of their time.

One year later, in November 1994, the album for Nirvana's MTV Unplugged in New York performance was released. It was Nirvana's first album to be released following the sad and unexpected death of the band's front man, Kurt Cobain. The album opened at #1 on the Billboard 200 charts. It also won a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 1996.

Despite the huge popularity of the performance, and nearly 12 years since the initial release of Nirvana's MTV Unplugged in New York album, it has yet to be released onto DVD. The thing that bothers me most is that when the newly revived MTV Unplugged aired for the first time in over 11 years in September 2005, it's newest performance by Alicia Keys is out on DVD the very same day that it aired! Now, I respect Alicia Keys and have nothing against her, but why is it that her performance gets automatically put onto DVD, yet Nirvana's award winning Unplugged performance has never been released in ANY kind of home video or DVD format? It's ridiculous.

The purpose of this petition is for an official DVD of Nirvana's Unplugged performance to be released and available to fans everywhere. Specifically, we'd want the DVD to show all of Nirvana's performance, including unaired segments, and other extras. A director's cut, so to say. Nirvana fans should be able to go to the store and buy an official, MTV released copy of the beloved performance, instead of having to settle for poor-quality bootlegs bought on eBay because it's their only way of ever owning a copy of the performance due to the fact that MTV has overlooked the fact that a DVD of Nirvana's performance is in high demand among dedicated fans around the world.

Nirvana fans everywhere should be able to buy an official, high quality DVD of Nirvana's Unplugged performance. So why hasn't MTV acted on that demand? We really don't know, but with your help - and the help of others that sign this petition, we'll be able to bring this demand to MTV and finally put to end the years of wishing and hoping that someday we'd be able to own an official copy of Nirvana's Unplugged performance.

We hope to reach 10,000 signatures, to prove to MTV that there is indeed a high demand for the DVD.

We encourage you to send your thoughts on this subject to:
