Nirvana is getting sued. The strangest lawsuit I might have ever seen.

Apparently because the album cover depicts a baby chasing a dollar bill, it implies that the baby is a sex worker, and is therefore child pornography. The guy in the album cover is doing the lawsuit, and he recreates the photo like every 5 years, and literally has "Nevermind" tattooed on his chest.

The defendants of the lawsuit involves a former member of the band who wasn't even in the album, and they got details about the record company wrong.

I really wonder if this is going to court at all. Judging by only a little bit I read about this, it seems like a very weak case, especially if you want to pursue this as child pornography. Simply basing a case about copyright might have a chance, but still.......

Jimmy Fallon making fun of the free jazz legend Peter Brotzmann is so damn surreal. At least he's getting a lot of backlash for it

I've seen Brotzmann live twice, and they were some of the best shows I've ever been to.

+1. Brotzmann is a legend.
