Nirvana Artwork Banned From Facebook

Written by Kate Wolf on July 28, 2011

The famous artwork for Nirvana’s classic album Nevermind which features a photo of a naked baby swimming after a dollar bill, has been banned from Facebook.

The artwork was uploaded to Facebook for the announcement of the album’s 20th anniversary reissue, which is released on September 27th. As part of the reissue there will be a 2CD Deluxe and a 4CD + DVD Super Deluxe edition. The Deluxe edition contains a remastered cut of the original album plus B-sides as well as a CD featuring the Smart Studio Sessions, The Boombox Rehearsals and BBC Sessions, and it will also be available on vinyl.

The Super Deluxe edition will contain these two CDs, plus a CD of the previously unreleased The Devonshire Mixes and the previously unreleased Live At The Paramount Theatre from their 1991 Halloween gig in Seattle, footage of which will also be included on the DVD. The show is the only known Nirvana gig that was shot to film.

Facebook have deemed the Nevermind image to be in violation of its terms of use because the image contains nudity.

Oops, I better make sure I take down those photos of me bathing my new born nephew…
