Nirvana is being sued over a well-known image that has been on the band’s albums and merchandise for the past 32 years.
You’re probably a Nirvana fan, know their music, or at the very least recognize their name. Their name, music, and beautiful creations may be found all over the place. Even those who don’t listen to Nirvana wear their merch on a regular basis.
This is something Nirvana will have to contend with in their legal battle. Someone close to the putative original creator appears to be claiming infringement over a particularly well-known design that has been on more goods than can be tallied. They aren’t the first to be sued for copyright infringement.
The most well-known Nirvana songs, album covers, and images
Nirvana was formed in 1987 and has since become one of the most well-known American rock bands in the world, with a following that continues to grow. “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” “All Apologies,” “About a Girl,” and “The Man Who Sold the World” are among their most popular songs.

The naked infant on Nevermind, the Kurt Cobain painting on Insecticides, and the angel woman with her anatomy visible on the album In Utero are just a few of their most iconic album cover designs.
There was no shortage of their well-known iconography, though. There’s the smiley face emblem from Nevermind’s launch advertising, the Nirvana ‘Vestibule’ design, and virtually everything else commemorating Kurt Cobain, who died in 1994 at the age of 27.
When did they get the lawsuit, and why did they get it?
Jocelyn Susan Bundy, who alleges Nirvana willfully stole a design from one of her family members and has used it on items without permission for 32 years, is on the other side of the lawsuit that recently hit the band.
