Controversial Album Covers VI (Pt. 2)

Year: 1970

Birth Control: Operation

 

The Problem: This carnivorous cretin caused such controversy that the album was banned in several countries. Even more scandalous: on some copies an image of the Pope was shown cheering the baby-eating bug on.

My Take: Well, that’s one way to take care of overpopulation. Hey, anti-abortion people can use both picture for their banners or whatever. I can partly see why Sinead O’Connor ripped up the picture of the pope years later. Best part? The band’s name seems to play on the images above.
