Talk To Me is way better live than the studio version.

The sound quality is shit.. but. This was the first version of Old Age I heard, and still have a slight preference for the vocal performance.

Old post but, definitely "Drain You", as fantastic as the studio version sounds, there's a certain raw brilliance in hearing that track live, and Pat Smear definitely added a thing or two to it in the later days.
Whenever I hear a live rendition of "Smells Like Teen Spirit", hearing Cobain murmur "Our little tribe" as opposed to the usual "Our little group" does arouse a smile from me.
"Blew" too -- for certain the performances of that song on the Utero tour emphasised the heaviness of those opening riffs, and by that time, Cobain's voice had developed to the point where it complemented the song better than it ever had done before.
It's hard to start things over, You can feel the fire around us, All the time. It's still unfashionable to beleive in principles.Let the Music Play.

Among competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected.
