U2 - Achtung Baby

For the album that would redefine them as a band, U2 got first-rate photographer Anton Corbijn to work on the cover and he took some truly fantastic shots. However, the design work (courtesy of Steve Averill and Shaughn McGrath) fails to come up with something as iconic as the music or as some of their past covers. Instead, the cover is largely remembered for the nude picture of bassist Adam Clayton that appeared on back of the LP cover, but didn't make it onto the CD art.
