Ryan Lochte Recreates Nirvana's Famous 'Nevermind' Album Cover (Video, Photo)

Ryan Lochte has done a lot in the past year. From being a medal winning Olympic swimmer to a reality show star, this athlete of Cuban descent has demonstrated that he can branch out. Yet his latest project seems the oddest of them all.

Lochte recently recreated Nirvana's famous 'Nevermind' album cover for ESPN. We all know he is comfortable floating around in most bodies of water, yet it's hard not to question how Kurt Cobain would feel about the "Jeah!" coining swimmer recreating one of his masterpieces.

Nirvana has sold over 30 million copies of their groundbreaking album worldwide, and MTV described it as the "album that would go on to usher rock's great renaissance."

It will not be the only album recreated for ESPN. The famous sports network will feature many more in their ESPN The Magazine's debut "Music" issue which hits newsstands Friday (Feb. 8th)!

Check out the photo of Lochte recreating musical history below.
