Watch one of Nirvana’s most notorious sets of their career

On October 30, 1992, Nirvana performed one of the most notorious sets of their career in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The folks over at Dangerous Minds recently dug up a video of the band's performance from that night, which you can watch in full below.

This show in particular proved to be memorable for a variety of reasons. One in particular being the all-female band that Nirvana had brought with them to open the show, Calamity Jane, had everything from mud and rocks to even money thrown at them throughout their set. 

This enraged Kurt Cobain so much that he threatened to cancel the show indefinitely. After deciding to not take that avenue, Nirvana performed a 22-track set that was comprised of songs most of the audience didn't know. They even performed a track that has, to this date, never been released: "Nobody Knows I’m New Wave." As Consequence Of Sound pointed out, some believe the song was made up on the spot.
