Nirvana's album Unplugged in New York is featured at number two in the Top Ten Live Albums by

Nirvana's MTV Unplugged, a somber album that revealed much about the band. The quieter, acoustic versions of their songs showed a band that had been hiding underneath all along while also giving some hints as to where the band may have gone in the future if not for Kurt Cobain's suicide. Like with Jeff Buckley, Cobain's death hangs over the entire show, but it also gives the show a context that makes it much more emotional than it would have been otherwise. The pain in Cobain's voice is almost uncomfortable at times, and it doesn't get easier when you remember what would eventually happen.

The chart also includes the likes of Johnny Cash, Jeff Buckley and Neil Young.
