Controversial Album Covers Pt. 13

Year: 1983

Dio: Holy Diver

The Problem: The original cover offended churches because it looks as if the monster on the album was killing a Roman Catholic priest.

My Take: Dio says that looks could be deceiving and that priest could be the one killing the monster. I say, whatever floats your boat!

W.A.S.P.: F**k You Like a Beast

The Problem: On the cover for Animal (F*** Like a Beast), W.A.S.P. was forced to place stars over two of the letters.

My Take: Are you sure it was the language in the title and not the fact there is a chainsaw at his funbits– with blood on his hands? You sure the language was the only problem or were they just trying to ignore the art? Can somebody enlighten me?
