  1. Spencer Elden is suing the band for child ***ual exploitation, saying he was unable to consent to having his image used for the iconic 1991 album Nirvana’s surviving members and the estate of Kurt Cobain have been sued by Spencer Elden, who appeared as a baby on the cover of 1991’s Nevermind. Elden claims the band violated federal child ****ography statutes and argues child ***ual exploitation, TMZ reports and documents viewed by Pitchfork confirm. Pitchfork has reached out to Nirvana’s representatives for comment. In a lawsuit that also named photographer Kirk Weddle and the labels behind the album’s release, Elden claims he has suffered “lifelong damages” and says his legal guardians never signed a release “authorizing the use of any images of Spencer or of his likeness, and certainly not of commercial child ****ography depicting him.” He’s also suing for distribution of private ***ually explicit materials, negligence, and what’s described as a “s** trafficking venture” where Elden “was forced to engage in commercial ***ual acts while under the age of 18 years old.” Elden is seeking damages, attorney fees, an injunction to prohibit all parties “from continuing to engage in the unlawful acts and practices described herein,” and a trial by jury. “The permanent harm he has proximately suffered includes but is not limited to extreme and permanent emotional distress with physical manifestations, interference with his normal development and educational progress, lifelong loss of income earning capacity, loss of past and future wages, past and future expenses for medical and psychological treatment, loss of enjoyment of life, and other losses to be described and proven at trial of this matter,” the lawsuit states. Weddle was a friend of Elden’s father Rick, which is how young Spencer ended up on the album cover. “[Weddle] calls us up and was like, ‘Hey Rick, wanna make 200 bucks and throw your kid in the drink,’” Rick told NPR in 2008. “I was like, ‘What's up?’ And he’s like, ‘Well, I’m shooting kids all this week, why don’t you meet me at the Rose Bowl, throw your kid in the drink?’ And we just had a big party at the pool, and no one had any idea what was going on!” Spencer was reportedly sent a platinum copy of Nevermind and a teddy bear by Geffen Records in 1991. Elden recreated the image multiple times over the years and had the word “Nevermind” tattooed on his chest, but in a 2016 interview with GQ Australia, Elden revealed that he had recently become unhappy about the Nevermind artwork. “It’s ****ed up,” he said. “I’m pissed off about it, to be honest.” "For the album's 10th, 17th and 25th anniversaries, Elden recreated the front cover shot for photographers. He wanted to do the 25th anniversary shoot nude but the photographer preferred that he wore swim shorts." https://pitchfork.com/news/nirvana-sued-by-baby-from-nevermind-album-artwork-for-child-****ography/ https://nypost.com/2016/09/23/nirvana-baby-recreates-iconic-album-cover-25-years-later/ Recreations: "In the past you’ve said it was cool. When did that change? Just a few months ago, when
 I was reaching out to Nirvana to see if they wanted to be part of my art show. I was getting referred to their managers and their lawyers. Why am I still on their cover if
I’m not that big of a deal? Why’d you reach out to them? I was trying to do an art show with the photographer who took the picture. I was asking if they wanted to put a piece of art in the ****ing thing. " So he is suing them for not coming for his show.... The irony of a person chasing a bill as a baby and 30 yrs after- still chasing that bill I guess
  2. There are songs that define moments and there are songs that define the generations attitude, way of life..everything.. Nirvana's Smells like teen spirit defines what Generation X is and launched Grunge as the top mainstream genre, which would last until Kurt Cobain's suicide in 1994.. The track is their most successful track, and propelled Nirvana's Nevermind to the top of Billboard 200 where it infamously ended Michael Jackson's Dangerous album, after a brief 4 week run on top, mainly was number one during the Christmas season of 1991, as it was the most asked album on kids Christmas wish lists. Like Madonna's material girl defined the attitude of The 80s, where power and status was respected, Smells like teen spirit defined the anger of generation X as most knew they were gonna be the first generation to suffer From the baby boomers spending habits of the 70s and the 80s. Congrats nirvana
  3. In what was to be expected. The top 3 spins most influential of the 35 years. Pretty much represented Generation X. Reading the list. Outside Billie Eilish, the entire top 35 was everything Generation X was, Anti establishment The Spice girls was the only girl group to be in that list, cos they represented britian and forced British music industry to create girl group's and all are molded after them. Lady gaga was also included so was beyonce. But very few millenials. The list was definitely 90s MTV Tupac Shakur, No doubt, nine inch nails. So it's no surprise. The top 3 was the definition of rule breaking artists Madonna who spin said to call her the queen is just disres8, she is pop and she djd it better cos it was political, even though it wasn't meant to be that way. She represented communtites6, turned and showed the evil of the catholic Church, and to do it at a time where men ran the industry, and she said I'm nobody's bish, but my own. The irony most females still seek the approval of men. Madonna still doesn't and it's refreshing to see M is still herself, even though the marriage to Guy was like a brief derail in losing herself, to which she admits, she did and she regrets it. #2 is Prince, a black self taught musician in 28 instruments if you include the female body, that's an instrument to him. Michael Jackson was cool and all, But Prince was able to look like a girl and still take her home to have his fun, Groundbreaking, especially considering the Reagan era was the worst time to be anything but normal. #1 Nirvana, if John Lennon is the face of his generation, than nobody represented the spirit of Generation X than Kurt Cobain, who's meteoric rise ended to his downfall. He wanted to make music, but not at the cost of obscurity and anonymity. He rejected fame and what it represented. Kurt Cobain felt the only way to actually take his life back, was to actually take it.
