"Achtung Baby liner pictures," U2
One of the many pictures in the album booklet shows bassist Adam Clayton standing nude. His privates are covered up by an "X" or a shamrock (U2 is an Irish band). Get 2 copies of the classic "Achtung Baby" album and you may see the difference.
Achtung, He's Got No Clothes On!
The Lizard King holds court for this jaunty but sinister salute to debauchery, written by Kurt Weill & Bertolt Brecht.

This song represents a humorous side of Simon and Garfunkel when they mention about what animals represent and a drunk zookeeper.
Their fine new album "Aufheben" has the same picture on the message-to-aliens LP disc that the Voyager I and II spacecraft have on them. The pictures shows our solar system and its planets, the location of our sun in approximate distances from certain pulsars, a nude man and woman and more.
