(via mental_floss) MTV Unplugged is a long-running show that showcases musical acts performing with stripped-down arrangements they’re not usually associated with, offering new, sometimes revealing takes on popular songs. It was a phenomenon for both the cable network and the music industry, particularly in the early- to mid-’90s, even though the show’s origins are murky, and the title is a misnomer—at the very least, the microphones are plugged into something. Here are some facts about the series in honor of its 27th anniversary.
