Nirvana - 'Nevermind'
http://206.47.170.43/music_v1_1/images/nirvana-300.jpg

Every iconic album needs an iconic image and Seattle's finest sure as hell came through.

Kurt Cobain conceived the baby swimming towards a fish-hooked payday to reflect their concerns over "selling-out" to a major label while still radiating pure joy.

Though the label suits were concerned that the baby's penis was visible, they caved when Cobain's only agreeable alternative was a well-placed sticker reading: "if you're offended by this, you must be a closet pedophile."
