Most Controversial Album Covers


The Top Ten

1 The Black Crowes - Amorica
2 Cannibal Corpse - Butchered at Birth

This album just makes me wanna wash my hands after I touch it. Really.

3 Bow Wow Wow - See Jungle! See Jungle! Go Join Your Gang Yeah! City All Over, Go Ape Crazy!
4 Chumbawamba - Anarchy
5 David Bowie - Diamond Dogs
6 Guns N' Roses - Appetite for Destruction (Original Cover)
7 Dawn of the Black Hearts - Mayhem

How is this not number 1? This is the cover of a dead person for crying out loud!

8 Roger Waters - The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking
9 Jimi Hendrix - Electric Ladyland
10 John Lennon & Yoko Ono - Unfinished Music No.1: Two Virgins

Watching John Lennon naked with his wife just made me stunned. - CasinLetsGoBowling

I seriously can't believe John Lennon would do something like this.

Seeing John and Yoko getting nude on the album makes me feel sick.

The Contenders

11 The Beatles - Yesterday And Today

Looks like the family friendly version of Cannibal Corpse's Butchered a Birth.

What you see isn't the original cover.
The original features the Fab Four holding raw meat and dismembered doll parts (dolls look like naked babies). Band members are smiling and look happy doing this.
Not many "butcher covers" made it to stores as the original cover was later replaced with a photo of the band, which you see on this list.
Well, obviously Cannibal Corpse didn't invent the "butcher" covers... - Metal_Treasure

13 Marilyn Manson - Holy Wood
14 No Love Deep Web - Death Grips V 1 Comment
