Nirvana's 'Nevermind' nudity on Facebook
Twenty years after kicking in the door of rock music and going on to sell more than 30 million copies, Nirvana’s Nevermind is still causing trouble. Facebook reportedly removed images of the so-not-controversial controversial album cover that depicts a naked baby boy (and his boyhood) swimming towards a dollar bill. “Facebook took down the product shots, they sent us a form message,” a source close to the band said in an email. “I’m guessing it’s probably due to the baby penis… still making waves 20 years later.”
The matter seems to have been resolved, as the Nevermind cover now appears on the band’s Facebook page. (Facebook did not immediately respond to a request for comment.) Commemorative Nevermind reissues will be released on Sept. 27, including a limited, numbered 4-CD, 1-DVD Special Deluxe Edition that includes dozens of previously unreleased recordings, obscure B-sides, alternate mixes, radio sessions, studio rarities and live recordings, including a 1991 Halloween concert at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre.
