Hello, hello. Here we are now, 20 Jahre später. Ich weiß noch, wie ich diesen Song zum ersten mal hörte. Ich saß damals im Auto eines Kumpels, wir hatten grade diese „Whoo-we-have-a-drivers-livence“-Phase. We were crazy, we smoked Eimer, an den Wochenenden, wenn meine Eltern weg waren, feierte ich Parties in meinem House. It was 1991. Fuck, we were young!

Then, Ich erinnere mich an den Moment, als wäre es gestern gewesen, ich saß im Auto meines Kumpels. Johann war sein Name, wir nannten ihn alle Joe. Later he became a big ass Omen-Motherfucker and I bought TONS of Extasy from him. Aber das alles kam später. We had this moment, when the band began to play. And then this bass.

Hello, hello, I lost my youth in this moment. Alles war anders danach. Alles. Yeah! Welcher Song kann das heute von sich sagen? I tell you: not a single one. Not one.

Hier noch eine Story von MTV von 2008: Nirvana Baby – All Grown Up – Re-Creates Classic Nevermind Cover Image – This time, Spencer Elden wore shorts

More than 17 years ago, when he was still an infant, Spencer Elden's parents dropped him into a swimming pool in California, where underwater photographer Kirk Weddle was waiting to snap an entire roll of film of the naked, buoyant baby. The picture was later used as the cover image for Nevermind, the second studio LP from a little rock band out of Seattle called Nirvana.

Now, 17-year-old Elden is a high school student, who told MTV News last year that "it's kind of creepy [to think] that that many people have seen me naked — I feel like I'm the world's biggest porn star."

Elden recently re-created the iconic album's cover in the same pool at the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center in Pasadena, California, where it was originally shot — only this time, he was wearing shorts. It remains unclear as to why Elden decided to shoot this new photo.

Elden's parents were paid just $200 for allowing him to be photographed back in 1991. But last year, Elden told us that being the Nirvana baby has its perks. He references it when trying to pick up ladies, he said: "I have to use stupid pickup lines like, 'You want to see my p---s ... again?' " But it's also led to some strange encounters as well. He was once invited to swim in a rather wealthy woman's pool for the mere fact that he was the Nirvana baby. Another time, he even met "Weird Al" Yankovic, who famously lampooned the cover on his 1992 disc, Off the Deep End.

"I ran into him when I was going to do a TV interview," Elden said. "He was in the hallway, and he actually signed the back of my platinum record."

Lyrics:

Load up on guns
and bring your friends
It's fun to lose and to pretend
She's over bored and self-assured
Oh no, I know a dirty word

Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello.

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto
An albino
A mosquito
My libido
Yeah (x3)

I'm worse at what I do best
And for this gift I feel blessed
Our little group has always been
And always will until the end

Hello, hello, hello, how low? (3x)
Hello, hello, hello.

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto
An albino
A mosquito
My libido
Yeah (x1)

*Solo*

And I forget just why I taste
Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile
I found it hard, it's hard to find
Oh well, whatever, nevermind

Hello, hello, hello, how low? (3x)
Hello, hello, hello.

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto
An albino
A mosquito
My libido
a denial (9x)
