Worst Album Covers of All Time (The Definitive List)


Recommended Posts

This thread is mostly full of the best album covers of all time, though.



Even as a middle school kid who was pretty deep into thrash when it came out I thought this cover was pretty crap, and it hasn't improved with age.

Let's be real, the worst covers are usually high budget, major label affairs.  

Completely agree. It's really easy to say something low budget or DIY sucks, but there's at least the charm of "this was made by like 3 people and one happened to have a GIMP installed" or something. When it's not ironic and made with a bunch of market research and soulless, then comes out the sphincter of its design firm as a piece of shit. That's when it hits like that Madonna or Metallica cover.

Same with movies.

Imagine how much money the design firm that came up with this was paid:

I like that "music" is in quotations. Nice self-jab on her part.

      So I spent the majority of last night (12am-5am) messing around with this thing. It's a programme based off of that deepdream thing google had awhile back. anyways it's free, you just sign up and upload an image and select a filter you want to use. I got some pretty cool ones, some not as interesting. in the time it took between uploads I was on here reading thru different threads, so I figured i'd share a bunch of them. As you all know by now, my favourite æ album is of course their best album, and that album, as we all know and can agree upon,   is Quaristice. So naturally I spent the most time with that one. I would have done more but I musste sleepen. If anyone feels like doing some of their other album covers, or even other cool covers, please post 'em up!
      Note that I always chose to keep the original colours when filtering.

      For those of you who haven't seen this mentioned in the FWP thread you're in for a treat...
      So this is how the festival was promoted

      And this is how it was described
      ...and it ended up like this.
