Nirvana, "Nevermind"   (frabricion)

(Newser) – Nirvana's artistic choices are apparently a little too risque for Facebook: The band's iconic 1991 Nevermind cover has become the latest image banned by the social network, which says the picture of a naked baby boy violates Facebook's terms of use. A photo of the album, soon to have its 20th anniversary, was uploaded to Nirvana's Facebook page and then removed by the site, notes the Hollywood Reporter.

Spencer Elden, the now-20-year-old displayed on the cover, has said the picture makes him "the world's biggest porn star." Click to see his recreated version of the famous shot.
