Controversial Album Covers V (Pt. 23)

Year: 2000

Sum 41: Half Hour of Power

The Problem: The cover shows a man in his underwear holding a machine gun pointed up in the air and is standing in front of an explosion in the background. Several chain stores refused to sell the album because of the violent album cover. Despite the controversy, Sum 41 refused to change the artwork.

My Take: It looks like a bad photoshop job. They should’ve changed, not for the “violent content,” but just to make it look better than this.
