The band did the recording back in May and Jared talked about the importance of MTV's Unplugged series to this generation of music listeners:
"I think our generation, it was kind of a rite of passage, and if you were invited to do 'MTV Unplugged,' it certainly was a pretty big deal," Leto said. "And so many of our favorite bands did 'Unplugged' and still do it, so we were really thrilled to be asked."
Their "Unplugged" set features standards like "Hurricane," "Kings and Queens" and "Closer to the Edge," plus a pair of iconic covers: the Police's "Message in a Bottle" and U2's "Where the Streets Have No Name," the latter of which Leto said holds a special place in his and his brother Shannon's hearts — and what better place to perform it than "Unplugged"?
