Beatles Butcher Album Cover When The Beatles' 1966 album Yesterday And Today was first released, it featured this grisly cover photo with the Fab Four clad in butchers' smocks posed among dismembered dolls and slabs of meat. The public outcry was swift. Some radio stations refused to play any of the album's songs. The albums were recalled after only one day on the shelves and had a different photo pasted on the cover. Recently an unpasted copy of this album sold for more than $10,000.

There were actually eleven Butcher cover photo variations from the photo shoot in the spring of 1966. Rumor had it that it was a brilliantly disguised protest, but some people have countered that it was just a publicity stunt. In either event, their intentions completely backfired.

It was a horrible idea in 1966, for sure. I wonder if anyone would even notice today.
