Nirvana's 'Nevermind' album cover has been banned from Facebook.

The American rockers - who were made up of singer Kurt Cobain, drummer Dave Grohl and bassist Krist Novoselic before the vocalist's death in 1994 - have had the LP's artwork, which features a naked baby boy floating in a pool, removed from the social networking site because the webpage revealed it violates their terms of use.

A notice read: "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."

But the baby in the photograph, Spencer Elden, who is now 20 years old, doesn't see a problem with the picture being on the album, which features iconic tracks from the grunge rockers including 'Come As You Are' and 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'.

He previously said: "Quite a few people in the world have seen my penis. So that's kinda cool."

'Nevermind' is due to celebrate its 20th anniversary this autumn.
