The album cover for Nirvana’s second studio album, Never mind became the focus of a new lawsuit last month. Spencer Elden, 30, the baby used on the album’s cover, sued the band for child exploitation. Elden filed a lawsuit this summer for $150,000 in damages, alleging that neither he nor his parents had ever filed any papers “allowing the use of any images of Spencer or his likeness, especially not commercial ones.” child pornography on which he is depicted.”

Dave Grohl recently sat down for an interview with The Times, where he suggested that future prints of the album will feature an entirely different cover art. “I have a lot of ideas about how we should change that cover, but we’ll see what happens,” he said. “We’ll let you know. I’m sure we’ll come up with something good.”

As for the lawsuit itself, Grohl explained that he isn’t too concerned about the case. “I think there’s a lot more to look forward to and a lot more to life than getting bogged down in that sort of thing. And luckily I don’t have to do the paperwork,” he said.

Elden’s lawsuit included claims that the group “reproduced child pornography depicting Spencer in science and intended to be distributed internationally and to gain value from such widespread worldwide distribution.” He added in the lawsuit that they “failed to take reasonable steps” to prevent “widespread sexual exploitation and image trafficking” of Spencer as a 4-month-old baby.
