Inside the making of Nirvana's iconic Nevermind album cover

Twenty-five years ago this month, Nirvana released their second album, Nevermind, which unleashed grunge upon the mainstream and changed rock and roll forever. While the music was certainly groundbreaking, so was the record’s cover art: it showed a naked, 4-month-old, submerged in water, swimming towards a dollar bill attached to a fish hook.

‘House’ recap: It would never work out

Music nerds have a saying about songs: “Don’t bore us, get to the chorus.” I personally am not a fan of noodling — endless, meandering guitar-noise explorations.
