All Grown Up

Alternative-rock icons who never actually played a note, Bee Girl and Nevermind Baby are universally known and appreciated for their small yet important roles. Spencer Elden (on Nirvana's seminal cover) and Heather DeLoach (in Blind Melon's iconic video) acted as reminders of innocence and purity in an era steeped in heroin, suicide, rain, and really fucking good music. While Kurt Cobain and Shannon Hoon never survived beyond the '90s (r.i.p.), the child-icons they helped create are all grown up and still living in the shadow of their early '90s "fame."
