Awful album covers!
« on: July 12, 2010, 10:05:03 AM »
So what are some of the worst album covers you have ever come across? Which ones make you laugh the most.

When I worked at a Borders we had this CD in and it always made me laugh:



I also own this gem on vinyl:



Which comes with this gem of a mini -poster:

Awesome Freebird cover!  The Freebirds kicked all kinds of ass back in the day!

And as many times as I've seen that Ken album cover, it still cracks me up!  I'll be disappointed if Joyce isn't too far behind.  And the birthday one too.  Those are awesome.  I really wanna hear these albums too.   ;D

I'm gonna go through all of my albums and see if I have anything that might be considered "awful"  I've picked up a ton of stuff in yard sales and thrift stores over the years just for the cheese factor so I probably have something of interest.  I'll post pictures if I find anything.

Here's a couple from my personal collection.  I need to dig around a bit more, but these two are pretty bad.



(Looks like Hall and Oates had Adam Lambert beat by about 35 years.)



(I actually love this album, but the cover is pretty silly.)

More to come if I can find any.  And everybody post stuff from their own collections if they have anything.

Me too, although for me, I think it's for the opposite reason.

I'm not altogether sure what preferences should be doubting what here. Are we sure we know what kind of "plumbing" is hiding under that flag? Is this some sort of pre-op/post-op situation?

I'm just gonna try to put this out of my mind.

So I checked my record collection, and there's not much by way of bad covers.  The worst ones I have are:
