    Bob Dylan

    Year: 1994

    Runtime: 1 hr 12 min

    Recorded in 1994, Bob Dylan - MTV Unplugged is a brilliant, quietly impassioned performance by one of pop music's most significant figures. Fronting his empathetic five-piece band (Bucky Baxter excels on dobro, mandolin, and pedal steel guitar; Bob himself plays frequent "rhythm leads" on his Martin), Dylan performs four of his best-known and potentially most overdone tunes in the 73-minute show; but "All Along the Watchtower," "The Times They Are A-Changin'," "Like a Rolling Stone," and "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" all sound great, with Dylan, as is his wont, re-casting both the arrangements and melodies. Even better is the obscure "John Brown" (written in the early '60s), a driving, biting war protest song of the kind that made him famous, while "Dignity," a lesser-known tune from the '90s, is filled with great lines ("Met Prince Phillip at the home of the blues... said he was abused by dignity"), and "Shooting Star" revisits Oh Mercy, Dylan's best '80s album. Through it all, Dylan says nary a word, although he does smile and shake some hands (even removing his shades) at the end. And as good as it may be, this show is most likely different from every Dylan concert before or since, a sure sign of an artist in no danger of becoming irrelevant.

    Thirty Seconds To Mars

    Year: 2010

    Runtime: 30 min

    Formed in 1998 by frontman Jared Leto and his older brother, 30 Seconds to Mars found success in the 2000s with a mix of post-grunge, screamo, and hard rock. The band gained a modest audience with its debut album, but it was the platinum-selling sophomore effort A Beautiful Lie that officially opened the flood gates in 2005, securing the band a frequent presence on MTV while paving the way for a number of successful tours. By placing all-access passes into 12 copies of the album, the bandmates also showed a savvy appreciation for marketing, which they revisited several years later by putting fans' photographs on the cover of their third album, This Is War.

    Babyface

    Year: 2009

    Runtime: 1 hr 3 min

    As a singer, producer, and songwriter, Babyface was an inescapable presence in virtually every major facet of pop music during the '90s. His own recordings helped rejuvenate the R&B tradition of the smooth, sensitive, urban crooner and made him a staple of urban contemporary radio. Yet their considerable success was eclipsed by his songwriting and production work for other artists, which linked him with some of the biggest stars and hit singles of the decade (and not just in the...

    Kinky

    Year: 2015

    Runtime: 50 min

    In an intimate live performance, Kinky joins forces with MTV for their first-ever 'Unplugged' album, featuring a superstar line-up of guests and new versions of their classic hits. Hosted by Diego Luna, the Unplugged album features collaborations with an international crew of stars including Carla Morrison, La Mala Rodríguez, Banda Los Recoditos, Voz de Mando and Beto Zapata (Grupo Pesado). The first single, “A Donde Van Los Muertos?” featuring Carla Morrison debuted #1 upon its release in Mexico. Kinky originally formed in the musically diverse and culturally rich scene of Monterrey, Mexico. More than 10 years ago, Kinky submitted a demo to the LAMC, where they ended up winning the conference's prestigious "LAMC Discovery Contest." The band has received multiple Latin Grammy nominations for their unique and innovative blend of electronic and alternative rock and has been established as a global touring band. Kinky's self-titled debut album received rave reviews from both international and national press. The album featured massive hit songs and much-synched classics such as "Mas" and "Soun Tha Mi Primer Amor.” Kinky’s music has been featured in numerous soundtracks (Man on Fire, Thirteen), TV shows (Gossip Girl, Dexter, Weeds, NCIS, Alias), TV commercials (Motorola, Taco Bell, Smirnoff Ice, Nissan, Honda), and video games like EA Sports' FIFA and Tiger Woods' PGA Tour. Their popular live shows have allowed the band to constantly tour around the world, performing at festivals such as Coachella, Bumbershoot, Outside Lands and many more. “Kinky’s songs ride funk and rock riffs that hark back to the dance-rock of the early 1980s, with a rough edge on keyboards and guitar — but punctuated, every so often, by accordion lines out of Mexican border music. Meanwhile its lyrics fling images of consumerism as brainwashing and distraction, and of partying toward self-destruction, none of which stopped fans from dancing.” – The New York Times
