Rock band Nirvana's Nevermind album cover, which features a naked baby boy floating in a pool, has been banned from Facebook because it violates the webpage's terms of use.

The American rock band comprised of singer Kurt Cobain, drummer Dave Grohl and bassist Krist Novoselic before the vocalist's death in 1994, reported Contactmusic.

"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," a notice read.

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.

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