Nirvana's Artwork Still Up on Facebook Despite Removal Report
The 'Nevermind' cover art which sees a naked baby chasing a dollar bill underwater is still up on the social network without any changes made.


Nirvana's "Nevermind" cover art is still up on Facebook contrary to reports that it has been yanked from the social network. The artwork doesn't have any alteration despite rumors that it fell into censorship.

The image indeed caused a buzz when it was released for the first time twenty years ago due to its portrayal of a naked baby boy floating in a pool. Despite the issue, it was used again for the cover art of the album re-release which will come out in the United States on September 27.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the picture was recently removed due to terms of use violation. "Facebook does not allow photos that attack an individual or group, or that contain nudity, drug use, violence or other violations of the Terms of Use," the notice reportedly read.

The model in the photo, Spencer Elden, who has now grown up brushed off the controversy. "Quite a few people in the world have seen my penis. So that's kinda cool," he said. He was even invited to have another photo session with Kirk Weddle, the photographer who took the 1991 picture. "Now that Spencer's old enough, I'd like to shoot him swimming nude again," he gushed.

Recalling the time when he looked for a perfect model for the artwork, Kirk told Spin, "I went to this school where they teach babies to swim and offered $50 to bring their kids to try out and $200 if we picked them as a model. This one girl was like a machine -- couldn't walk, couldn't talk, but she would just motor around underwater. The labels saw the photos and were like, 'We want the dick, we want the dick.' It was bizarre."
