The cover art for Nirvana's classic 1991 album, "Nevermind," has been banned from Facebook on the grounds that it's graphic content.
The picture of a swimming baby chasing a dollar bill underwater has become iconic, but the artwork was removed from the group's official fan page shortly after music bosses posted the image to commemorate the album's 20th anniversary.
Executives at the social networking site say the photo violates its terms-of-use clause.
The boy who posed for the photograph 20 years ago, Spencer Elden, has no qualms about the naked snap being used on Facebook.
In a 2008 interview, he told NPR, "Quite a few people in the world have seen my penis. So that's kinda cool."
The cover has been restored to Facebook. Guess they got too many complaints?

The album cover was and is innocent. Facebook needs to control all the other crap that it has become famous for.
If facebook has a policy, then that is the policy.
Idiotic or not, that is Facebooks choice.
If you lift the policy for one, then you have to lift it for others.
So it's an iconic cover......big deal.
