As of today (August 1st, 2016) MTV is officially turning 35 years old. Before it became a collage of teen pregnancy, reviewing youtube videos, and reality dating shows, MTV was the epicenter for music. 

One of the gems MTV blessed audiences was the intimate MTV Unplugged, where great artists would perform some of their greatest hits without the glitz, glamour, and special effects we'd normally see at their shows. Rather than that, viewers had the opportunity to see their favorite artists perform in an intimate acoustic setting, that have already produced some some of music's most memorable moments.

Below are 10 incredible artists featured on MTV Unplugged.

Nirvana



Pearl Jam



Alice In Chains



Staind



Aerosmith



Stone Temple Pilots



Lenny Kravitz



R.E.M.
