‘Appetite For Destruction’ Album Art Banned – 25 Most Destructive Guns N’ Roses Moments

Appetite For Destruction

The ‘Appetite for Destruction’ album cover is one of the most recognizable pieces of album art in rock history, but the iconic ‘skulls’ graphic wasn’t the album’s original cover art.

Based on the Robert Williams painting ‘Appetite for Destruction,’ the Guns N’ Roses original album cover depicted a robotic sex offender about to be destroyed by a metal avenger.¬†Due to the controversial nature of the art, the band and Geffen Records chose to include the original art inside the album’s booklet after various music retailers refused to stock the monumental record.
