1982 Spinal Tap album being supported on the tour chronicled in Marty DiBergi's movie This Is Spinal Tap. The band's suggested cover for the album was considered too sexist by the band's label, Polymer Records, and Sears and K-Mart refused to carry the album as long as it showed "a greased, naked woman on all fours with a dog collar around her neck, and a leash and a man’s arm extended out up to here holding on to the leash and pushing a black glove in her face to sniff it." (Bobbi Flekman, Polymer representative). The band claimed the original cover was a joke and griped that if it had been a man collared and leashed, no one would have objected. They were less than pleased with the plain black cover the label substituted, an idea later reused by Metallica for their 1991 self-titled album.
