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.

I'm surprised Be Bop Deluxe's 'Sunburst Finish' didn't make this list. Or any Herb Alpert albums. Or ....

the only controversial one was where a labia was visible through the 'fur'. the rest were just breasts, and no penis anywhere!

Roger Dean's cover art for Yes' "Yesterdays" (a 1976 run-through of their earliest years) would not be touched by any label now. Stark naked kids aged perhaps eight playing in a mythical landscape. On the rear side the girl's crotch is the key point of the painting, though hidden by some butterfly thing as she's floating in mid-air. It looks and feels innocent, but today it would be impossible.

A lot of Rubens, Raphael and Michelangelo could easily be classified as pedophilia nowadays and not see the day of light if these people lived today. We have surrendered to political correctness and sterile appropriateness and artificially imposed need to conform to nanny-states driven by nanny-marketing interests where it's fine to buy BRATS dolls in g-strings in Wal-mart but not to photograph or paint a naked child in an artistic manner for example. We live in a weird world...

Still have the Roxy Music one. Fun history there. It shipped in green plastic (for the benefit of Sears no less) and then the later cover had the same picture without the ladies.It's not RM's best music, but for me the best cover. You did miss the Golden Earring Moontan cover that got changed in a hurry. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F...Got that one too!

If we're talking about nude album covers, it'd be a perfect time to promote the beautiful  Taragana Pyjarama.
