The live material features the band's final touring line-up, Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl, Pat Smear and Krist Novoselic in a show on their home turf widely seen as pivotal.

Amongst the tracklisting sits 'Forgotten Tune,' a song that is exactly that, long forgotten. The 2-minute instrumental jam and pretty raw; it's not likely to make the radio anytime soon but will give avid fans something to chew.

"'Forgotten Tune,' we found it and were like, what is this song? And I don't really remember," Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic tells NPR. "And [we were], like, what do you want to call it? And I'm like, I don't want to give it a name, so let's just call it 'Forgotten Tune' and let people make up their own minds what it is."

Fans in Seattle who bought the 20th Anniversary reissue were treated to free tattoos of the band's iconic smiley-tongue face courtesy of Silver Platters in the SoDo neighbourhood on Tuesday, reports SeattlePi. Mike Batt, the owner of the parlour said that new releases are sometimes accompanied by stickers, posters or lithographs but he called on two NY tattooists to mark the special occasion in a more permanent way.
