12 Times the Arab World Hilariously Covered Up ‘Raunchy’ Album Art

Have a look at how Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries removed all the naughtiness from these 12 album covers.

We're such prudes here in the Middle East. We love to consume Western culture, albeit with our own little added touches. We have to grant it to the censorship authorities of Saudi Arabia and Iran, though. They get seriously creative, and let's not forget to mention how generous they're being. They could've just banned these albums altogether, but no. They went through the trouble of going through each and every album sleeve to control our lustful gazes, sometimes with Photoshop, and sometimes with a marker, so they can be sold on the shelves of music stores across the region without any mums having to go, "oh gosh!" Thanks to BoredPanda, we can have a look at the best ones. Some of them are new, and some are golden oldies from our childhood. A most bizarre Ramadan ad is also included for good measure.
