We get what Kris Kross was trying to do here. It was pretty obvious that they included a mushroom cloud on the cover of Da Bomb to sell the idea of dropping a bomb on the music industry with their sophomore album. But their label had a tough time selling this album overseas, specifically in Japan, because of the image of a bomb dropping. So they had to create a special cover specifically for Japan to avoid offending anyone.
