It was a set the band sought to use to establish themselves beyond the grunge chaos that was their breakout sophomore album Nevermind. It included an incredible rendition of David Bowie’s The Man Who Sold The World, and last night the surviving members of the band teamed up with Beck to work the magic once again.
