A Fan Draws Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ Album Cover By Cycling


An Australian national parks project manager Pete Stokes recreated Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind‘ iconic album cover by cycling around the city to celebrate the album’s 30th anniversary, and he shared his recent artwork on his Instagram account.

As you probably know, Nirvana released their second studio album named ‘Nevermind’ on September 24, 1991. It was considered a sign that the band had started creating more radio-friendly songs compared to their previous album, ‘Bleach.’ It became very popular and commercially successful by hitting the charts and selling thousands of copies in only one week.

The band’s remaining members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic announced that they will release the ‘Nevermind’ reissue on November 12, 2021, to celebrate the album’s 3oth anniversary. Following that, an Australian Nirvana fan named Pete Stokes paid tribute to the album in his own way. Stokes cycled 150 miles and drew the album’s cover by using exercise tracker Strava.

Recently, Stokes shared his fan art created in Strava on his Instagram account. His unique and creative celebration drew the great attention of different magazines, websites, and Nirvana fans. Therefore it seems that after the fans and press, Nirvana members might also notice and appreciate Stokes’ distinctive fan art soon.

Stokes’ IG post read:

“‘Nevermind’ released thirty years ago today. Still kicks all kinds of ass.”
