Dead Kennedys' Frankenchrist. First time a band ever faced criminal charges due to the content of an album.

EDIT: It wasn't actually the cover, it was the art inside the record.

I'd agree with Cannibal Corpse. Pointless and disgusting.

Well, everyone got all huffy about Manson's Mechanical Animals album covers. I think it's one of the best album covers, ever, personally. It's a lot more meaningfull than most covers out there.

Hmm... I thought I would know more about this than I do... oh, and then there's Nirvana's Nevermind, obviously.
#15
Well Appetite For Destructions got totally thrown out didn't it. And I'm sure Electric Ladyland was originally different from the one I've got with Hendrix' face on it, wasn't it a load of naked women that got banned?

Total Guitar did an article on worst album covers of all time. There was the white snake one where the snake does some chick. scorpions virign killer was bad. Dwarrves are the worst. Dwavers must die has a midget on a crfoss with naked chicks around him. Then there was blind fathis fist album, they had a teen boy topless. looks like he has small breasts. made me do a double take.

The Scorpions - Virgin Killer.

Man, I hate that band.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

i agree with the guys who said appetite, i think its a great picture!
If you take home anything,
let it be your will to think,
the more cynical you become,
the better off you'll be.

There's one called Carnivorous Erection,with a lovely picture to match, but I am SO not Google-ing that!

Not really one of the most controversial, more just funny but it should be here just for that
#36
What about that New York Dolls one where the cover was all red and to do with communism?
#38
Rage Against the Machines Self titled in pretty Contraversial.
#39
hands down Cannibal Corpse... i mean, the album covers are so vulgar that they've had to make different covers for certain countries, and even some albums have been banned in some countries because they're that gruesome and vulgar
#40
Slayer's 'Christ Illusion' caused a lot of controversy, as did Cannibal Corpses earlier albums (Eaten Back to Life, Tomb of the Mutilated).
