Butchered at Birth is the second studio album by American death metal band Cannibal Corpse. It was released in 1991 through Metal Blade Records. Even though the album was banned, it was not given a censored re-release or new artwork.
The album was banned in Germany due to the violent artwork. The first pressings of the compact disc were wrapped in white butcher paper stamped with the band logo and album title in red ink. Butchered at Birth′s cover also drew a complaint from the Ontario Provincial Police in Canada, which led to stores being told not to sell the album to people younger than 18 years old.
“Rancid Amputation” was given a lounge music rearrangement by Andrew Hansen of the Australian comedy team The Chaser in July 2006 when the band came under controversy due to their lyrical content prior to touring in Australia. Before performing the song, Hansen told the audience that it's "the music that's the problem, not the lyrics", thus performing the song in a lounge style.
