This is by no mean a definitive list, but these albums are worth revisiting
In the last few years, Vinyl has experienced a massive resurgence.
It accounted for 9.7 million album sales in 2018, thanks, begrudgingly, to what NPR called the "Hipsterfication of America." While the sales can mainly be attributed to classics like Michael Jackson's Thriller and The Beatles' Abbey Road, it seems fitting to pay homage to the records that gave us Millennial's a "thunder down under" and kickstarted our sexual awakenings.
The racy nature of the album covers below sparked cultural phenomenons. Let's dive into the birth of the "Parental Warning" and revisit the album that turned whipped cream from a mere dessert topping into something much more. These are some of the most risque records in history.
The Rolling Stones, “Sticky Fingers” (1971)
Arguably The Rolling Stone's best album and most controversial, Sticky Fingers elevated the band to iconic status. Due to the bulging cover art, the album was initially widely banned but is now one of the most iconic covers of all time. Rumor has it that the band paid upwards of $15,000 for Andy Warhol to design the cover art, but the government ended up pressuring the Stones to switch it for a shot of a woman's crotch, rather than a man's. It just wasn't as good.
