The Beatles' album Yesterday and Today was released June 20th, 1966. It was a controversial cover upon release, later to be referred to as the "butcher" cover. Band members had used the cover to voice their opinion on the Vietnam War. Due to public demand, the cover was replaced. This incident was the first time the Beatles were negatively criticized by the media.
