Hey gang–guess what popular West Coast Sound feature is back? The Word Cloud! The 'Cloud has been M.I.A. for a few months, but we're restarting this Friday tradition with a great one–as per usual very suitable for making stencils and T-shirt iron-ons.

(You can see previous examples of albums by Black Flag, Beach Boys, Guns n Roses, NWA, etc. here.)
Now we offer for your viewing pleasure one of the most iconic LA albums ever: Jane's Addiction's Nothing's Shocking.
Here you go:
