The photo on the cover of the Beastie Boys album Ill Communication was shot by acclaimed photographer Bruce Davidson at Tiny Naylor's on the corner of Sunset and La Brea in 1964. It was originally part of a set of photos intended for Esquire magazine that were never published.

The drive-in restaurant, an example of California's futurist Googie architecture, was opened by the 6'4" 320 lbs. W.W. Naylor in the 1950s. It closed in the '80s and was torn down to make way for a strip mall after a proposal failed that would have designated it as a cultural landmark.
