Despite the ill will I harbor for MTV as a whole, I have nothing but good feelings about MTV Unplugged. Of course, that’s probably because the Nirvana performance sticks out in my mind far more than Korn’s appearance on the show. Selective memory is a beautiful thing. Vampire Weekend recently brought their jaunty tunes to the Unplugged stage. Check out the full performance at MTV if you like what you hear from “Cousins” below.
