10. Nirvana (1993)

In 1993, Nirvana took to the Roseland stage. The show was a last minute addition to the New Music Seminar, and was definitely the highlight of the series. The show got off to a bumpy start as Kurt Cobain almost didn’t make it to the stage, but he was revived minutes before their performance. Despite Kurt’s frail physical state, the group gave their fans the show of their lives. They previewed songs such as “Serve the Servants” and “Scentless Apprentice,” and topped it off with “Come As You Are,” “Breed,” and “Lithium.” The show ended with “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and Kurt lying on his back, playing his heart out on his guitar. This was one of the most memorable Nirvana concerts for years to come.
