Controversial Album Covers VII (Pt. 7)

Year: 1998

Ugly Kid Joe: The Very Best of Ugly Kid Joe: As Ugly as It Gets

The Problem: The cover features a picture of the Ugly Kid Joe mascot running in a living room with a lighter in his hand. Many stores, such as Kmart and Walmart refused to stock the album as it was deemed “too violent”. The album was released six years after their debut album America’s Least Wanted. Unlike that album, As Ugly as It Gets has never had a second cover.

My Take: It’s not that bad! He’s just running with a lighter. Not exactly smart, but not “too violent” as they claim.
