As Nirvana’s iconic debut album Nevermind turned 30yo on the weekend, the man who was the naked underwater baby on the cover has escalated his protest against it. Spencer Elden is pushing for publisher Universal Music to cover up his male bits from all future album covers. He has previously called the artwork “child exploitation and violation of privacy”.

Adhering to Elden’s wishes was Adelaide Hills cyclist Peter Stokes. He traced Elden’s face by riding his bike and tracking his journey in his own tribute to the album’s anniversary.

And one for the Ted Lasso fans… Behold 80s pop icon Rick Astley’s response to the last episode of the popular Apple TV+ show/COVID antidote. You’re welcome.
