MTV's 120 Minutes Live is a 1998 compilation of performances from Music Television's long-running showcase for alternative rock. Typically, the artists performed live in MTV's studios in New York, usually without an audience. These recordings have the general feel of BBC or radio session recordings.

Weezer makes an appearance with a 1994 reading of their first single, "Undone - The Sweater Song". Interestingly, this compilation seems to be fairly under the radar of the vast majority of Weezer fans, as it is rarely mentioned on boards or traded digitally.

Other artists of note that appear on the disc are Oasis, Radiohead, and a recently reunited Sex Pistols.

From the liner notes:

"When this young L.A. band came in to visit us following the release of their '94 self-titled debut album, no one could have predicted how huge this song or the follow-up single "Buddy Holly" would become. They played both songs that day and it was a truly grueling task deciding which one to include here."
