I was really hoping he would go with the semi nude woman with the awkward photoshop for the sleeve.
Color me disappointed! :(

Ummmmmmmmmmm........ Nazi salute?

I don't even give you a dislike or negative rating for using this word again

People here in Europe still remeber the WWII against a rascist and fascist regime, anyone who call their name is in my case out of discussion

you must come here and see all the military graves of USA/UK and other nations soldiers who died fighting th fascist regime, you'll be suprised how many still are and get held tidy.

because we must

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.
What will it cost?

Dinked means that there no centre to the record, or rather that it has been left open. Like a single issued for jukebox use (and like many records released overseas*). A centre adaptor would be required to play it on a turntable.

* apologies to non UK readers - I haven't phrased that very well.

I just want to add a bit of balance here.

For me, when I first saw this photo I thought that it reminded me of what my face would look like when I reach out that in way to pull my wife's head down in order to give me a BJ!

Nowt to do with a salute.....

My first thought was that he was doing an impromptu Frankenstein impression. I thought the other pic was pretty sweet honestly but this is fine. Be kinda funny though if he turned the tables and put Jeff Buckley on it since he recently released a cover of this but of course that'd be all kinda of problematic. Still
