Sonic Reducers | Smells Like A Lawsuit

The Nevermind baby is suing Nirvana. And we have something to say about that.


Oh well, whatever? Not anymore. This week, Spencer Elden — aka the baby on the cover of Nirvana‘s breakthrough album Nevermind — sued the band (among others), claiming the image is child pornography. Ridiculous? That’s what I think. Not so fast, says my Sonic Reducers cohost Eric Alper. Listen in as we debate the merits of Elden’s case, compare the public reaction to that of other cases, and wonder whether he’d be doing this if there weren’t a potential financial windfall at stake. Sonic Reducers: One topic. Two music nerds. Everything you need to know.
