Beyond all that, Nevermind has become one of the most iconic album covers of all time. It features a baby in a pool underwater that is swimming towards money on a fishing hook, and it has been repeatedly spoofed and used as inspiration because it’s so well known.
Perhaps you had a copy of Nevermind on cassette…
…or maybe you had a copy on CD…
…or maybe you were lucky enough to have a copy on vinyl…
…but odds are you had a copy! Since then, the cover has generated numerous copycats inspired by the memorable pose. Here are the best.
1. Weird Al Yankovic
One of the original spoofs and still one of the best. Weird Al chased a donut rather than a dollar for his Off the Deep End album. He even recorded an entire music video that parodied Smells Like Teen Spirit.
2. Bart Simpson on the cover of Rolling Stone
3. Homer Simpson on the cover of Rolling Stone
4. Olympic Swimmer Ryan Lochte for ESPN the Magazine
5. Yoda from Star Wars
6. Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy
This one will be available as a limited edition variant cover of the upcoming All-New Guardians of the Galaxy #9 comic this September.
