Seeking a Win in NY

As fans anticipate the National Football League (NFL) Draft this week, the news of a lawsuit filed by one football fan may further peek their interest.

1991 Album Faces the Money

Pool of surprises

Although this was not their first album, it served as their breakthrough and reason for reaching the top of the charts in the early 1990’s. While “Nevermind” helped define Nirvana’s future in the music industry, it also eventually led to the band’s recent involvement in a federal lawsuit, in which the baby on the cover, who is now 30 years old, is suing for exploitation. He is holding several parties accountable for advertising and profiting from an album that illustrates an indecent photograph of a 4-month-old baby in a pool. Read more
