The most controversial banned album covers of all time
9. The Beatles - Yesterday And Today
The Fab Four concocted this visual nightmare for an American album as an "art statement". Label bosses freaked out and quickly banned the sleeve by sticking a bland photo of the boys over the top of the original... but fans soon realised you could steam off the replacement. However, so many "butcher covers" have since been "peeled" in the intervening 50 years that the censored sleeve is considered more valuable these days.
