Nirvana’s surviving members – Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic – together with Geffen Records and Universal Music have just given the band’s fans a rare treat. The 1993 performance, Live and Loud is now, for the first time, available in full on YouTube.

The set that the band performed at Seattle’s Pier 48, alongside their unplugged set on MTV, is considered to be one of the best shows played by the band. It consists of 17 songs and was initially performed after the release of In Utero, the last studio album of the band. It contains songs such as “Scentless Apprentice,” “Pennyroyal Tea,” “Rape Me,” “Serve the Servants,” “Sliver,” “Heart Shaped Box” and other songs from the album. The only song from the show that hadn’t made its way to YouTube is their cover of David Bowie’s song The Man Who Sold the World.

It is not the first time this performance became available to the fans. It was included on the 2013 special release of the deluxe edition of In Utero which was released in honor of the album’s 20th anniversary. Earlier this year, Grohl and Novoselic announced that it will also be made available on streaming services.
