Are you a big music fan? Do you remember the days when you bought music in CDs? Or records? The bad thing about buying MP3s is that you don't get to see the awesome album artwork anymore. You might see a tiny thumbnail on the website, but that's it. There are some versions of the albums on iTunes where you get a PDF of the album booklet with the MP3s, but you usually have to pay for the "deluxe" version of the album. There have been many controversial albums over the years. Some of them were controversial for the lyrics, and some were controversial for the album covers and/or other artwork on the album.
There was the album, In Utero, by Nirvana. It had a crucifixion on the cover. There was the Beatles album where they are holding parts of baby dolls. Many albums that just had some shocking imagery on them. Some had to be re-released with different covers. Especially, some of the classic albums; a lot of those are censored. Nowadays, they may not seem that bad, but back then they offended many people. The Lynyrd Skynyrd album that had a picture of the band members surrounded by flames, which is ironic because a lot of the members died in a plane crash. So, it was only offensive because of the separate event.
Today, I am presenting a list of the sexiest album and single covers that should've been censored. I'm including any time period and any genre. Most of them include nearly nude women, or women that are nude but have something strategically placed to hide their naughty bits.
12 Katy Perry - "Teenage Dream"
11 Nicki Minaj - "Anaconda"
10 Bon Jovi - "Slippery When Wet"
9 Whitesnake - "Love Hunter"
8 Lil' Kim - "La Bella Mafia"
7 The Slits - "Cut"
6 The Strokes - "Is This It"
5 The Pretty Reckless - "Going to Hell"
4 Kool and the Gang - "Live at the Sex Machine"
3 The P*$$Y Warmers - "My P***y Belongs to Daddy"
2 Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass - Whipped Cream and Other Delights
1 Steel Panther - "Balls Out"
Here we have "Balls Out" by Steel Panther. Steel Panther was formed in the 2000s, and they are a satirical band pretending to be an 80s "hair metal" band that missed their big break by about 20 years. They appeared in a Discover Card commercial. They played themselves on an episode of the Drew Carey Show. Their song FF was used by MTV's Fantasy Factory show. "Balls Out" was released in 2011, and it displayed their great metal talent. Being a comedy band, they cranked out some serious metal. It has a mixed following: either you're going to get it or you're not.
