Red Hot Chili Peppers, 'Mother's Milk' (1989)

Anthony Kiedis described this cover as "like four Tom Sawyers being held by this giant naked lady." Hot for fans of giantess porn, or for those who like to imagine the Chili Peppers as anatomically correct Ken dolls. When the band printed up posters where model Dawn Alane's nipples were exposed, she successfully sued them for $50,000; Kiedis groused, "I couldn't understand why we couldn't have found a model who was happy to have her tits on a cover."
