Did you know that The Coup’s ‘Party Music’ album cover was banned because it depicted attacks on the World Trace Centre?
The original album cover of ‘Party Music’ was banned by retailers because it featured images of The Coup blowing up the World Trade Centre twin towers. However, although the record was released on November 6th – almost two months after the tragic September 11th terrorist attacks – the cover was actually created in June 2001.
The Coup was then forced to change the cover of ‘Party Music’ to a picture of a cocktail glass. Yet, to this day, several people are amazed by the coincidental connection between the original artwork and the events of September 11th.
