Controversial Album Covers IX (Pt. 15)

Year: 1994

Acid Bath: When the Kite String Pops


The Problem: Adorning the cover of Acid Bath’s When the Kite String Pops is Pogo the Clown, the infamous alias of serial killer John Wayne Gacy. The painting itself was made by Gacy while he was in prison awaiting execution. The killer would notoriously dress as the clown at kids’ parties and charitable events.

My Take: It looks innocent, but very twisted. Clown are just downright scary, period. John Wayne Gacy or not. Plus, I just got finished with watching American Horror Story: Cult too? Mmmm…. (BTW, John Wayne Gacy was featured in American Horror Story: Hotel too.)

Nailbomb: Point Break


The Problem: Nailbomb, the group consisting of then Sepultura frontman Max Cavalera and Fudge Tunnel’s Alex Newport, surrounded themselves with quite the buzz in 1994. Point Blank is a sonic combination of the duo’s two bands and boasts a controversial album cover where a U.S. soldier is pointing the barrel of a rifle against the face of a female Vietcong member.

My Take: This would be better fit on the cover of National Geographic.
