Shit album artwork

Recommended Posts

All of the OP's original choices. I don't think I'd seen any of them before but they're gash.

Also, all stereotypical metal artwork ever.

I'm a big fan of UFO, they've had some great album artwork, especially the Hipnosis ones, but I don't know what they were thinking when they decided to use this....

I like stereotypical Thrash artwork. The artist that did Peace Sells, and the Municipal Waste record. I love that whole bright red sky, toxic waste imagery. It's corny as fuck.

i'm not having that. every pavement record had pretty eye-watering cover art but only maybe half really fit with the music contained therein. in my mind the sparkly stars and neon cowboy(?) here perfectly reflect the noises on the record that were caused by nigel godrich's glossy overhaul of the band's sound.

i don't really have anything useful to contribute to this thread, i'm just going to argue with people about aesthetics.

Yeah, I guess, but it's still horrible in my humble, wonderful opinion.

That's Soviet Realism, innit?

[EDIT] I might mean Socialist Realism. I've had rather a lot of wine. [/EDIT]

Granted, this is a single not an album, but i came across this when having a clear out, almost binned it because of the sleeve, glad i didn't, it's a cracking tune

Nah, man. It's a Leopard breathing fire. Fuck me, if that's not awesome I have absolutely no idea what is.

Agreed.

Damn - I love Rage to death, but that is one TERRIBLE piece of album artwork!

You've missed the point entirely. It's a parody of the art work "Love" by Robert Indiana.
