* ComicBook/{{Vampirella}}...you didn't see that coming, right? But just because Dynamite did a makeover and now dresses her decently, it won't exclude her wearing hear classic costume on the cover...

** Taken UpTo11 with the cover of the [[CrackIsCheaper infamous]] ''Music/TheFlamingLips and Heady Fwends'' [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/U-vaqJhdsY8/maxresdefault.jpg "blood vinyl edition"]], which is a variant of the ''Two Virgins'' cover, with the band and all collaborators on the album (Including Yoko and her and John's son, Sean Lennon) with their heads pasted onto copies of John and Yoko's bodies

The Music/SexPistols' only album, ''Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols'', was the subject of a public obscenity case regarding the word "bollocks" which was later thrown out. When ''God Save the Queen'' was released as a single, it caused even more controversy when the cover art featured a defaced depiction of Queen Elizabeth II.

* UsefulNotes/Synthwave artist Perturbator has a bad tendency to have these types of covers for his EPs and albums, especially due to them being based off of 80's slasher movies. Practically all of them have some sort of a scantily clad woman on there somewhere, sometimes with satanic imagery in tow.

* The cover for ''Videogame/Doom2016'' was lambasted for being an incredibly generic "man with gun" pose and nothing else. There was eventually a Twitter poll held by the developers for new art that would be on the reverse of the cover. [[https://twitter.com/DOOM/status/705423011969699840 The new art]] proved so popular that it replaced the old art for the Nintendo Switch port.

* The NancyDrew SpinOff series ''The Nancy Drew Files'' is an interesting case of this starting off not so bad, then getting ''better,'' before finally getting worse. A deliberately more mature series, the romance was ratcheted up in-story, but the covers themselves were usually a rather harmless [[http://www.series-books.com/nancydrew/pbs/files8.jpg photo of Nancy with a handsome man in the background.]] This actually improved as time went on, with the covers simply turning into [[http://www.series-books.com/nancydrew/pbs/files78.jpg action shots.]] However, around Book 100, they took a turn straight into [[http://www.series-books.com/nancydrew/pbs/files111.jpg romance novel.]] Incidentally, the titles themselves were occasionally misleading; the rather romantic sounding ''The Stolen Kiss'' was actually about a stolen painting, called "First Kiss."
