P.O.D.: Trouble in Paradise

Published: 2003-12-10
Since the release of the new CD "Payable on Death" by P.O.D. religious book and music stores have been refusing to carry the CD. Over 75 percent of the Christian bookstores in the US have refused to carry "Payable on Death". The objection appears to be a disapproval of the CD cover art work – a naked woman superimposed over a butterfly. The woman's arms are crossed over her breasts. Her pelvic region is covered by a banner with the word "Sanctus" – a Latin word used in Mass.

This is not the first time P.O.D. and Christian bookstores have clashed over CD cover art work. In 1999 "The Fundamental of Southtown" was also rejected because of the art work. In that case P.O.D. produced CD's with black covers for those outlets. This time around the band refused to make any changes.
