MTV Unplugged 2.0 is a live album released by Dashboard Confessional in 2002. This CD/DVD package is the band's first live album. The band already recorded an acoustic instrument-based LP and is also the first non-Platinum selling artist to be on MTV Unplugged. After a few months, RIAA certified the album Platinum, indicating shipment of between 100,000 and 200,000 units, as it is considered a long-form video. The album is the first one to have peaked at #1 on the Top Heatseekers chart and the Top Independent Albums chart. The album peaked at #111 on the Billboard 200. It is the only Dashboard Confessional LP album with a platinum certification.

The songs featured on this album are slightly changed and are more up-beat versions of the songs from Dashboard Confessional's previous albums, The Swiss Army Romance and The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most and their So Impossible EP.

This is the first time Dashboard Confessional performs the tracks "Remember to Breathe", "The Sharp Hint of New Tears, "So Impossible", "Turpentine Chaser", "Living in Your Letters", "For You to Notice" and "Hands Down" as a full band unlike the ones on their original albums which featured only Chris Carrabba, who is sometimes accompanied by John Lefler.
