I refuse to believe that. LOL. 20 years? Yeah, that's right, it was my freshman year of college. I remember Smells Like Teen Spirit being played over and over on MTV, the Weird Al's Smells Like Nirvana took over. LOL.
I do remember the cover art. Didn't they 'squiggle' out the baby's penis eventually?

Um...I think they did? I remember when my BFF and I "got into trouble" for that album cover. It was because we were making a collage for our school locker. Remember how CDs used to come in those gigantic cardboard boxes? We were using the Nevermind photo from that, and we'd taken a square of black paper and covered the baby up with that. That's what caused her grandma to flip out. We probably should have just been more creative with arranging our photos instead. :/

LOL! I had forgotten about those huge cardboard cases CDs used to come in. Now, you barely get a case to store the CD in. :)
