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). It’s a long rock ‘n’ roll tradition — one celebrated with a new list over at Ultimate Classic Rock.

Alice Cooper Plans Deluxe Edition of His New Sequel Album, ‘Welcome 2 My Nightmare’

It’s always hard for a sequel to recapture the excitement of whatever made the original great, but give Alice Cooper credit — he’s doing whatever he can to convince fans that his upcoming album, a sequel to his classic ‘Welcome to My Nightmare,’ is something special.

Cooper reunited with the original Alice Cooper Band for a few tracks on the new ‘Nightmare’ and even enlisted his old producer, Bob Ezrin. If that wasn’t enough, he’ll also release a deluxe “fanpack” edition of the sequel, titled ‘Welcome 2 My Nightmare,’ that packs in a boatload of extras.

Alice in Chains Working on ‘Amazing’ New Album, Says Heart’s Ann Wilson

Two years ago, Alice in Chains emerged from a 14-year hiatus — and the death of original vocalist Layne Staley — with ‘Black Gives Way to Blue.’ The band is already assembling its next album — and according to Heart vocalist Ann Wilson, they’re playing at the top of their game.
