About Unplugged

  1. MTV's acclaimed acoustic music series showcases the work of today's top artists and introduces the stars of tomorrow. The series' roster runs the gamut from pop mainstays like Katy Perry, Paramore, Adam Lambert, and Alicia Keys, to indie darlings such as Phoenix, Silversun Pickups, and Lykke Li. ‘Unplugged' is an unrivaled listening experience that exposes the raw talent of your favorite artists. The beloved franchise got its start in 1989 and in the span of more than two decades has featured such iconic artists as Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Mariah Carey, Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Kiss, Lauryn Hill, and Oasis. The explosion of renewed interest in Folk and acoustic music in general in the late 80s led to the birth of the series, which now also appears on MTV sister networks Vh1 and CMT. Vh1's ‘Storytellers' is a direct offshoot of ‘Unplugged' with behind-the-scenes and interview footage interspersed with the performances.
