What Are Rock’s Most Shocking Album Covers?

Being proudly provocative has always been part of rock ‘n’ roll — from the music’s earliest days, when simply shaking one’s hips on television was enough to send middle-aged Americans into a righteous lather, the formula for some of the best rock has been one part rhythm, one part volume, and one part shock.

This has also been true for album covers, which some of rock’s most forward-thinking performers have used as a platform to shock, disturb, annoy, and generate thought-provoking conversation (although not necessarily in that order).

Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell Plan Intimate Wedding

His last marriage didn’t work out so well, but give Paul McCartney credit for perseverance: he’s getting ready to walk down the aisle again — and soon.
