Facebook has taken aim at a classic – and controversial – album cover. Classic Rock reports that Facebook has started banning the artwork from Led Zeppelin’s “Houses of the Holy” album from their site. To jog your memory, the cover features a few nude figures portrayed by two child models.

Multiple Facebook users have reported having trouble posting the artwork without consequences. In some cases, users have been locked out of their accounts, received warnings that the artwork is “against community standards,” or simply had the image removed by Facebook. Now, there’s a Change.org petition to stop Facebook from “censoring” the album cover.
This isn’t the first time Facebook has censored controversial album covers. Back in 2011, the artwork for Nirvana’s “Nevermind” album was temporarily banned from the site. It was eventually unbanned, so maybe the same will happen for this Zeppelin cover.
