    Celebrating the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's genre-defining second album Nevermind, VH1 Classic will televise a special, never-before-seen concert "Nirvana: Live At The Paramount" Friday, Sept. 23 at 11 PM ET/PT. The 60-minute, hometown concert will also be simulcast on VH1 and Palladia, MTV Networks' high-definition music channel.

    Shot at Seattle's Paramount Theater on Halloween night in 1991, the historic and riveting concert will remind viewers how one band changed the music scene with an inspirational bounty of seminal songs including their '90s anthem "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Launching the 11 song set with a brilliant cover of the Vaselines' "Jesus Doesn't Want Me For a Sunbeam," the band tears through Nevermind hits including "Lithium" and "Breed," plus other favorites including "Aneurysm," "Polly," "Sliver," "On A Plain," Blew," "Territorial Pissings" and "Endless, Nameless."

    It's been 20 years since Nirvana's groundbreaking 1991 album Nevermind was released, VH1 Classic is celebrating and honoring the punk trio Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl on Friday, Sept. 23 at 11 PM ET/PT. Tune in to VH1 Classic for a front row seat to Nirvana: Live At The Paramount and witness how an alt-rock trio from Seattle became one of the most renowned rock bands in history.

    Will you tune into this TV event?
