Controversial Album Covers V (Pt. 9)

Year: 1984

Anthrax: Fistful of Metal

The Problem: The cover originally showed an animated picture of a man with a fist wrapped in metal emerging from his mouth. The original cover caused retailers such as Walmart, Kmart, and Target not to sell Fistful of Metal. The album was reissued as Fistful of Metal, Armed and Dangerous and featured the same man with most of the blood censored and featured a red picture of the band.

My Take: Ouch! Just looking at this hurts! Yikes!
