THURSDAY UPDATE, READ THIS: The ESPYs Turned Into The PTSDs, a Far Worse Sin Than Rolling Stone

If you think the latest Marathon Bomber edition of Rolling Stone was controversial, you’re not thinking back far enough.

This week, Rolling Stone magazine created a controversy by putting Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on its cover with the caption “How a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam and became a monster.” Some people have spoken out on Rolling Stone’s Facebook page asking for Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs during the Boston Bombings, to be on the cover.

Unlike the old saying, you do judge a magazine by its cover. That’s why the more controversial it is, the more likely you are to pick it up. Here are some more contentious covers throughout history:
