In 1968, John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Two Virgins LP was released in Britain, three days after Lennon’s divorce from his wife, Cynthia. The cover featured a frontal nude shot of John and Yoko, causing much controversy and a two-month delay in the North American release. The album was finally shipped in a plain brown wrapper.

Also on this date in 1979, the four original members of KISS performed together for what they thought was the last time. They reunited in 1996.
