Controversial Album Covers II (Pt. 17)

Year: 1999

Marilyn Manson: The Last Tour on Earth


The Problem: The cover features a burning cross and was offensive to many Christians, but the cover remained unchanged.

My Take: Two questions: Can we really have a controversial album cover display without Marilyn Manson involved? And, why are we being shocked by this? It’s Marilyn Manson being… well… Marilyn Manson. Not a good cover for black people because the bad memories of KKK linked to burning crosses.
