I grew up listening to a lot of Nirvana and Green Day during my college days. It was the time of grunge, skate boards and long ponytail hair. My first Nirvana album was ‘Nevermind’ and it was special edition Gold CD album. Unbelievably, that was 20 years ago. Today, Nevermind remains as one of my favourite album with some of the best songs from Nirvana.
If you’re a Nirvana fan too, you’d probably have the Nevermind album too and you’d probably remember the baby on the CD cover. Yep, the baby from Nirvana’s Nevermind album is all grown up now and he recently celebrated his 22nd birthday.
The 22 year old Nirvana baby is Spencer Elden and he’s now a fine art student at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. His father Rick was an artist rigging special effects for Hollywood and he decided let his newborn baby boy appear as a model for an ‘up-and-coming’ band’s new album in 1991. The photo was taken by a photographer friend of his father and there was no model release agreement signed, so Spencer is not getting any royalty from one of the best-selling album from Nirvana. The picture kind of portrays the situation then, ‘never mind’!

So, feeling old yet?? Haha
