Nirvana's Nevermind Artwork Unbanned From Facebook

29 July 2011

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.

However the image has now been restored, and Facebook executives insist they weren't responsible for the ban, because naked babies are not included under the terms of use nudity clause.

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.
