That's a famous and iconic news photo. It won a Pulitzer. But IMHO not an appropriate use of the image to use on a commercial album cover. Putting that image on an album just for shock value belittles or disengages (what is the word I'm looking for?) the photo from the news and events that surrounded it. Using that image as part of a news story or history book is proper. Using that image on a t-shirt or album cover is not. It's enough of an abuse of the image that I refuse to even listen to the album.
Famous iconic news photo, yes
Famous iconic album cover, no
