Controversial Album Covers V (Pt. 21)

Year: 1996

Staind: Tormented

The Problem: The bloody cover art features a buried person with a rosary sticking out of its nose, a knife impaling a bible and a bloody Barbie doll on a crucifix and was offensive to many churches, however the cover remained unchanged.

My Take: I never knew such an image existed. I’m not seeing where the knife in the bible is. Other than that, I really don’t have much to say about this picture. Anyone want to add anything else on? Anyone? Anyone? No? Okay…


Green Day: Bowling Bowling Bowling Parking Parking

The Problem: 10 days later after the release of Bowling Bowling Bowling Parking Parking, Green Day was sued by the cover, which depicts a man in a suit wearing glasses and is holding briefcase beside him. After the suing, the band apologized to the man.

My Take: I have so many questions for this cover. Who is this man? Did he know they were taking his picture for this? Where did they find him? Why did they take this picture of him? He looks like he was unaware of this picture being taken of him.
