Controversial Album Covers VI (Pt. 5)

Year: 1986

The Exploited: Jesus is Dead

The Problem: The Exploited concocted a cartoon reworking of the death of Christ for their 1986 EP, complete with a badly-coiffed zombie girl in heels to overlook the torrents of blood spurting from the crucifix. Tasteful.

My Take: It’s Jesus with zombies! It’s so red! So red! I think I see the girl under the cross. I love the symbolism on the cover with Jesus, blood, and the dollar signs.
