Gotta hand it to you, that is a legendary selection of awful album covers. ;D

"I Eat Kids", "All My Friends Are Dead", that's some heavy stuff!

I'm going out on a limb here, but I'd submit that "a long time coming" is the exact OPPOSITE of Lil' Cease's problem...
"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."

- Conan O'Brien

I know this ranks low on questions people have of this... but why is "Scarred" censored?

Well, you gotta be able to reach your key Wal-Mart demographic, and you know they always censor everything.

Maybe they mean SMASH HITS as in you will be so high on meth when listening to that you will smash and hit someone?

Now that outfit Cher's wearing reminds me of an Ator character, namely the evil sorceress from the first movie that was trying to seduce (and succeeded.) Ator.



I just hope Cher doesn't look into any funhouse mirrors.

Okay, couldn't make past 40 seconds of the Zip Zap Rap.  :gouge:

But the song teaches you to just "SAY NOooooooOOOO!"

Being a genocidal maniac is not one of my turn ons.

Is it weird to hear the Safety Dance in my head watching Game of Thrones?

The album cover is definitely "Body by Crystal Meth".....

Still, D'Mite he ain't.   ;)

That's quite a collection they found there.  People forget that for every iconic album cover there's about 1000 misfires like those in that article.

In fact, it reminded me of an album cover by one of my favorites - ELO - that was pretty bad....the album's called "Secret Messages".



And they were usually known for their clever cover art like "Face the Music" and "Out of the Blue".
