Dave Grohl Has Ideas For New NIRVANA Nevermind Album Art After Lawsuit

Spencer Elden is likely pleased.

Nirvana may end up changing the iconic artwork to their 1991 album Nevermind after all. According to drummer Dave Grohl in an interview with The Sunday Times, he's working on a few ideas for the revised artwork but isn't sure what will happen yet.

"I have many ideas of how we should alter 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."

The potential change in artwork stems from a lawsuit filed by Spencer Elden, the (now 30-year-old) baby swimming to catch a dollar on the cover of Nevermind. Elden and his lawyers claim the iconic cover "intentionally commercially marketed Spencer’s child pornography" and that "Cobain chose the image depicting Spencer — like a sex worker — grabbing for a dollar bill." The legal team also demanded that UMe change the artwork for the upcoming Nevermind reissue.

Elden is currently seeking $150,000 each from Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic; Courtney Love, who serves as the executor of Kurt Cobain’s estate; both of the estate's managers Guy Oseary and Heather Parry; photographer Kirk Weddle, who took the initial photo; art director of Nevermind Robert Fisher; original drummer Chad Channing, who was not a part of Nevermind; and "a number of existing or defunct record companies that released or distributed the album in the last three decades."
