    Man who appeared on 'Nevermind' cover as an infant accuses Nirvana of child pornography

    Man who appeared on 'Nevermind' cover as an infant accuses Nirvana of child pornography in lawsuit

    The man who appeared naked as a baby on a famed Nirvana album cover is suing the band, saying they profited off an image that constitutes "child pornography."

    Members of the band, Spencer Elden's attorney claims in a suit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles federal court, "knowingly produced, possessed, and advertised commercial child pornography depicting [Elden], and they knowingly received value in exchange for doing so."

    Now 30, Elden appears on the cover of Nirvana's smash 1991 record "Nevermind" as a then-infant depicted underwater with a dollar bill on a fishhook.

    In the lawsuit, Elden compares his appearance on the album cover to being "like a sex worker," since he is shown "grabbing for a dollar bill that is positioned dangling from a fishhook in front of his nude body with his penis explicitly displayed."

    Naming the record label, the estate of late frontman Kurt Cobain, the album cover's photographer and designer, and past band members Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Chad Channing, Elden says they "failed to take reasonable steps to protect [him] and prevent his widespread sexual exploitation and image trafficking."

    The "Smells Like Teen Spirit" rockers, Elden says, "leveraged the shocking nature of his image to promote themselves and their music at his expense."

    Elden claims he suffered "lifelong damages" both physical and emotional due to the image.

    Elden, who claims he was never compensated for appearing on the cover as a four-month-old, is seeking $150,000 from each defendant, attorney fees and an injunction prohibiting the defendants "from continuing to engage in the unlawful acts and practices described herein."

    It’s just a money grab, a stupid and desperate lawsuit.

    He already recreated the photo about half dozen times on various birthdays, including well into his adulthood. And now he's suing. It's an obvious money grab.

    This whole thing is ridiculous. The down side is a lawyer actually took the case and a judge is willing to hear it. I’m not sure where the picture originally came from but I wonder if his parents gave permission to use the image and if he’s suing them as well. As bad as the lady suing McDonalds for their coffee being hot.

    The ridiculous part is that he’s suing for so little money. If you are going to start a ridiculous frivolous lawsuit, why not shoot for the stars??

    Also- read up about the facts on the McDonald’s case. You will probably agree that the woman should have sued. I do anyway.. they handed an almost 80 year old woman a 190 degree cup of coffee. 3rd degree burns and skin grafts. She asked McDonald’s for 20k for her surgery, they refused to settle and McDonald’s was ordered to pay $640k. Ruled agains McDonald’s because they were aware hundreds of people were burning and injuring themselves every year but continued to sell the coffee at that temperature because the profit outweighs the settlement costs.
    … so a judge put a stop to it.

    After looking into more I do agree that a lawsuit is deserved to a point. Were they serving their coffee at an extremely high temperature yes and they should have taken partial blame for that. But at the same time she did spill it on herself. Both parties are at fault.

    Definitely both parties at fault. .. no doubt there... accidents happen…But when I think about a grandma having to get a skin graft on her vag from weapons grade coffee, I lean in her direction with sympathy.

    Just market it like you are veterans with kooky military terms because non-military guys think itÂ’s cool. I am thinking about starting a supplement biz like this because it hasnÂ’t been doneÂ…Â…erÂ…waitÂ…..never mind.
