The latest album cover of hip hop group The Coup was pulled because it shows the musicians in front of the exploding twin towers of the World Trade Center.

The album, called "Party Music," was scheduled to be released on November 6 with the cover that was designed earlier in the year. The Coup, known for its political activism and anti-capitalist sentiments, released a statement to CNN saying: "This is a very unfortunate coincidence and my condolences go out to the families and friends of the victims."
