Controversial Album Covers Pt. 19

Year: 1989

Beautiful South: Welcome to the Beautiful South


The Problem: The album cover originally depicted two pictures, one of a woman with a gun in her mouth, and another with a man smoking. The cover was banned by Woolworths because they thought it might cause people to take up smoking; the picture of the woman with a gun in her mouth also offended. As a result, a second cover was made, depicting a fluffy rabbit and a teddy bear.

My Take: OMG! We don’t want people smoking and putting guns in their mouths because of this cover. We can’t have that! Oh, please!!! That’s a dumb reason. You can tell it’s fake! It’s looks like a picture you would pose for a joke. People with common sense aren’t going to put guns in their mouths just by seeing this picture! As for the smoking, people with common sense aren’t going to start just by seeing this picture! The guys at Woolworths are idiots!
