Top 10 Nude Album Covers Too Hot to Post on Facebook (NSFW)

Not safe for Facebook?

Most people wouldn't count a photo of a baby's penis as pornography. But that didn't stop Facebook from taking down a posting of Nirvana's classic Nevermind cover art this week. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the social networking giant hive mind determined that the photo of a nude infant in a pool violated its terms of service, which prohibit photos that contain nudity. Later though, Facebook came back and said the photo actually didn't violate its terms -- since it wasn't sexual -- and that the Nevermind cover could be posted on its site.

We're still a little confused about all this, but one thing seems clear: There are a lot of steamy album covers no one will be seeing on Facebook anytime soon. Here are ten of our favorites.

10. The Cars -- Candy-O

Not technically a photograph, but still plenty alluring, is the cover of the Cars' 1979 sophomore album, Candy-O. Even given the fact that the blonde here is painted, we'd bet this pin-up style image is still too hot for the Facebook censors to approve.

9. Dwarves -- Drug Store

Pretty much every Dwarves cover is a hilarious and hot take on the above theme: naked women and a little person. The Chicago-via-S.F. punk band loves chaos, boobies, and --

we're just guessing here -- bubbles.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
