    Facebook Censors Nirvana's Nevermind Cover

    Nirvana, Nevermind DGC

    Dumb.

    It's not only the title of a Nirvana song, but it's also what many might be thinking once they've heard that the folks over at Facebook have removed the cover for the band's seminal 1991 album, Nevermind, off the social networking site.

    So what gives?

    The posting of the cover on Facebook was part of a campaign to promote the September release of a 20th anniversary deluxe edition of Nevermind.

    Well, Facebook took issue with the fact that the artwork features a naked baby (yes, a baby), and such a thing totally goes against policy.

    "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," read the notice.

    This, despite the fact that the kid on the cover, who, like the album, is also 20 years old now, is perfectly fine with his privates being made public.

    "Quite a few people in the world have seen my penis," Spencer Elden tells the Hollywood Reporter. "So that's kinda cool."

    If you ask us, this smells like something—and we ain't talking teen spirit.
