Artists Denied Performance at Constitution Hall
Constitution Hall is owned by Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). It was built in 1929 and is one of Washington, D.C.'s largest concert halls.

Two performers that were denied permission to perform at the Hall were Joan Baez (of Mexican heritage) in 1967 and Marian Anderson (of African American heritage) in 1939. In protest over DAR's denial to Anderson, first lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, resigned from DAR.

2 Live Crew - As Nasty As They Wanna Be Pooh Man - Funky As I Wanna Be

As Nasty and As Funky As They Wanna Be
The rap group 2 Live Crew's 1989 album "As Nasty as They Want To Be" was a lightening rod for controversy in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The cover featured the group peaking out between the legs of four thong-clad women on a beach. Florida attorney Jack Thompson, affiliated with the conservative group the American Family Association, worked to have 2 Live Crew's music outlawed because of its sexual nature. He succeeded and the result was several record store retailer arrests as well as the arrest of three members of the group themselves. The rapper MC Pooh Man released "Funky As I Wanna Be" in 1992 as a reference to the 2 Live Crew release. MC Pooh Man's cover features him peaking out behind legs, but in a very different position.

Banned Beatles' Cover
It is not commonly known that the Beatles, originators of some of the most imitated album covers, caused a controversy with the album artwork used for 1966's "Yesterday and Today." The cover art, a butcher theme with baby doll parts, was meant to be a pictorial metephor on how the album was assembled, that is by piecing together singles in an hodge podge manner as if a butcher assembled it.
