The most controversial banned album covers of all time
8. The Rolling Stones - Beggars Banquet
The Stones' label Decca flipped when they saw the sleeve artwork intended for the band's 1968 album - a grimy photo of a horrendous toilet wall situated in some car dealership in Los Angeles somewhere. Citing reasons of good taste, the album was delayed for weeks before finally arriving in a plain sleeve that parodied a party invitation. The original cover later appearaed when Beegars Banquet was issued on CD for the first time in the 1980s. It was as filthy as ever.
