According to London Underground, the artwork for Metallica and Lou Reed’s forthcoming album ‘Lulu’ is too controversial to appear on posters within the tube network.

Our feature below includes artwork from the likes of James, Roxy Music, The Rolling Stones, Guns N' Roses, The Black Crowes and King Diamond - check it out now.
