Has it been an entire year already since the last Hottest Chicks in Hard Issue? I guess so, as you are looking at the cover of the 2011 issue, which hits newsstands October 11th. For those of you asking "why do they keep doing this?" the answer is because this is usually one of their highest selling issues of the year. And, it's not like they kidnapped Amy Lee and threw her on a photo set, slapped some make up on her and forced her to look at the camera or else be tasered. Amy gets some publicity, and the magazine sells some issues. Everybody wins!
