How Sinful Are The Vatican's Favorite Albums?

The Catholic church has released a slightly tongue-in-cheek list of its favorite albums of all time, via the Holy See's official newspaper L' Osservatore Romano.

When first you hear about it, you might think it would be filled with Christian rock (Hey. Petra. Right?) but no, for whatever reason, the Vatican chose actual, legitimate albums as their favorites. Albums rife with dirty, dirty sins, as listed below.

The Beatles, Revolver


"(If you drive a car ), I'll tax the street/ (If you try to sit ), I'll tax your seat/ (If you get too cold ), I'll tax the heat/ (If you take a walk ), I'll tax your feet." - "Taxman"


"Make love all day long/ Make love singing songs" - "Love You To"


"Please, don't wake me/ No, don't shake me/ Leave me where I am/ I'm only sleeping" - "I'm Only Sleeping"
