Nirvana's iconic 'Nevermind' cover art has been restored on Facebook, following reports that the image violated the website's terms and conditions.
The famous album cover features a swimming baby chasing a dollar bill underwater, and it was removed from Nirvana's official Facebook page this week after it was labelled as graphic content.
A Facebook representative says, "The photo on the cover of 'Nevermind' album does not actually violate Facebook's terms. Facebook does allow photos of naked children 'that are clearly unable to stand on their own' in a non sexual situation -- so in other words, babies. Why? Put it this way - if a parent wanted to share some photos of a newborn with their grandparents, we wouldn't want them to not be able to share them on Facebook."
The image was posted on the band's Facebook to commemorate the album's 20th anniversary.
