The Most Controversial Album Covers of All Time


You can’t always judge an album by its cover, but these albums have some of the most controversial in music history

A list from the U.K.’s The Independent included The Beatles’ infamous ‘Yesterday and Today’ album cover that featured the Fab Four dressed as butchers and holding decapitated baby dolls. The cover was quickly replaced.

The simple cover for Sex Pistols album ‘Never Mind the Bollocks’ caused a stir because of the usage of the word ‘bollocks.’

Of course, Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ is STILL causing controversy thanks to a lawsuit by the baby on the album cover.
