10 most shocking albums covers in Rock

Rock stars love to give the proverbial (and sometimes literal) middle finger to the establishment, and there's no better way than with a shocking album cover. As the recent kerfuffle over Nirvana's 'Nevermind' cover being banned from Facebook proves, many of the most infamous album covers are still controversial today. Join us for a look at the 10 Most Shocking Album Covers in Rock Music. (Note: Before you scroll down, some of these images are not safe for work — unless you work at Tommy Lee's house. Then you're probably fine.)

 3. John Lennon and Yoko Ono, 'Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins'
 The sight of, according to John Lennon, “two slightly overweight ex-junkies” in the nude proved to be too shocking for music retailers, who sold the album in brown wrapping paper. The packaging made it look like John and Yoko were drowning in quicksand.

I pretty much expected this to be the album cover that made it.

The cover is a legend, even if the album itself isn't.

It's curious that the Blind Faith album isn't in that list.

Very true! I didn't know it existed until a few years ago but I would expect that the creators of this list would know about it.  ;)

This list is bullsh*t without Scorpions' "Virgin Killers".

I agree! That cover was much more shocking.

I also think that the original cover of Beggars Banquet was more controversial than Sticky Fingers.
