The now 25-year-old who most people only knew as the naked swimming baby from the cover of Nirvana’s iconic album, Nevermind, has recreated the image for the record’s 25th anniversary.

Spencer Elden initially wanted to honor the band by posing naked, as he did 25 years ago.

But when presented the idea, the photographer responded that ‘he thought that would be weird’ so ‘I wore my swim shorts,’ Elden told the New York Post.

‘It’s strange that I did this for five minutes when I was four months old and it became this really iconic image,’ he said. Nirvana’s album, Nevermind which was released 25 years ago Saturday, was the second album for the American rock band that is arguably the defining album of the grunge movement

Elden, who is now an artist, said the anniversary ‘means something to me’ although he doesn’t remember it, as he was only four months old at the time.

‘It’s strange that I did this for five minutes when I was four months old and it became this really iconic image,’ he told the Post.

‘It’s cool but weird to be part of something so important that I don’t even remember,’ said Elden, who is from Los Angeles.

Nirvana’s album, Nevermind which was released 25 years ago Saturday, was the second album for the American rock band that is arguably the defining album of the grunge movement.
