But as a middle-class white American, that's exactly what I'm supposed to think Rap is supposed to sound like. At 3:35 he even starts doing the gaspy noise. PLUS it has the lyrics "Say no to drugs" and "Don't be no fool, stay in school". It takes me right back to the '80s! And it's Saturday Morning, and they're killing time between 2 of my favorite Saturday morning cartoons. Either that or I'm watching a video that DARE decided everyone in my class should see. Still, nostalgia!

In 1989, I had a work-study job at the music library at Bowling Green State University. In that few months, I saw some truly WTF album covers, most of which I've manged to blot out of my memory. But not all:

"All I ask of you is one thing: please don't be cynical. I hate cynicism -- it's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere.
Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen."

I had no problem with the hideous cross-dressing hicks but then I realized the artist had ADD and completely lost focus.

I was thinking Crumb and Ed Roth drank too much moonshine then took turns puking onto a piece of construction paper.

On the other hand, there are syndicated cartoons in "alternative" newspapers across the country that look just like that...and are supposed to be funny.

Probably sounds great if you're high, though. :D

Theli by Therion. Always stands out as the worst album cover to me. It's... its magic.

I like how Anubis has his head cocked to one side, like an actual curious dog.

You can almost hear him thinking, "You're going with what for the cover?"

That lazer cat's cradle on the bottom ties the whole thing together.
