Censorship - it's everywhere, and don't you just hate it? I know I do. It's even in CD- and Album covers! Take a look for yourself:
Here's David Bowie's album "Diamond Dogs", that came out in two versions. One where the dog penis is visible, and one where it's retouched.
Black Crowes made an album, "Amorica". The album cover's depiction of pubic hair, from a 1976 United States Bicentennial issue of Hustler magazine, caused controversy. The record company ended up putting out an alternative cover that blacked out the offending image.
The Hip Hop duo Coup made an album in 2001 called "Party Music". The original cover showed the duo standing in front of the twin towers of the World Trade Center as they are destroyed by huge explosions. The cover art was finished in June 2001 and the album was scheduled to be released in mid-September. However, in response to the uncanny similarity of the artwork with the September 11, 2001 attacks, the album release was held back until alternative cover art could be prepared.
When Mariah Carey's album "Butterfly" was going on to the Saudi Arabian market, there was a problem with all the naked skin, she's showing. A bit of (badly performed) photoshop was added, and bingo - she was now fully dressed. They did the same trick with her album 'Number 1's', where they photoshopped sleeves onto her t-shirt and pants on her bare legs.
In 1991 Hurricane produced the album "Slave to the thrill". The original cover featured a nude female model lying on a machine. This cover was replaced shortly after the initial pressing by an alternative cover that had the female model removed from the picture so that all that was seen is the machine.
Roger Waters - 'The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking' from 1984 was also hit by censorship, but the lazy kind, with a bar over the "critical part"...
German heavy metal band Scorpions release the album "Lovedrive" in 1979. Censors didn't like the chewing gum on the boob and the scenario as such, so it was replaced with a boring one:
Censorship. Don't you just hate it?
