Billboard's 20 Banned Album Covers

I thought this was particularly interesting. Hot on the heels of the recent unveiling of the controversial cover to Kanye West's fifth album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Billboard have posted up a top 20 list of banned album covers. What a list!

Haha! My mum thought I was looking at porn when I was looking through the link.

I thought this was an interesting story too, particularly how some artists were willing to compromise, like Poison using bars to hide the demon image, while others like Jane's Addiction, were not.

I was shocked by that John Lennon cover... yuck!
