Nirvana Baby Recreates Album Cover 25 Years Later 2016-10-04 10-49-16


It’s the 25th anniversary of the monster hit album, Nevermind, by Nirvana! That’s mind blowing in and of itself, but the realization that the baby from the cover has grown up to become a man is even freakier!

Spencer Elden, 25, wanted to go au naturel when he made a splash to honor the legendary grunge band, he told The Post.

“I said to the photographer, ‘Let’s do it naked.’ But he thought that would be weird, so I wore my swim shorts,” said Elden, an artist from LA.

The album includes songs like “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “Come as You Are” and has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide.

In 1991, photographer Kirk Weddle asked Elden’s parents if he could use the baby for a photoshoot for the then-unknown band, according to Time magazine. A fish hook with a dollar bill was later added digitally to the image.

The shoot lasted 15 seconds and Elden’s parents made only $200, his dad told NPR in 2008.
