DAMMIT. Cracked is now blocked at work. I can't help but wonder if this is directly attributable to me.

They listed "Ironic Innocents" but didn't list Biggie's "Ready to Die" album?

List FAIL.

That's funny, cause Friday is my day to read Cracked at work. For some odd reason, it's blocked as "tasteless" Monday-Thursday, but on Friday's the whole internet is open.

I kinda like the 70s prog fantasy covers, but they were really missing out on metal & dragons.

/Or metal and scantily clad babes with swords
//Or, well, any kind of power metal covers
 
2012-09-14 12:50:53 PM  
Should have mentioned--that's Supergrass' self-titled album with the faces superimposed over X-Rays.

No mention of the gazillion of hip hop albums featuring iced out the MC sitting on the hood of his ride in front of the ghetto? Bonus points if there are pitbulls being retained on a leash while a nuclear mushroom cloud going off in the background,

So let me get this straight...

You make number 2 on your list fantastical creature drawings and you don't include a single Journey album cover? They not sell enough records for you or something?

It may not be ridiculous but it does taste like Kingsford lighter fluid. I've never gotten the hype. To each their own, I guess.

I never really thought of Pearl Jam as being a semen related thing.

I knew Limp Bizkit was.

/both bands have a cover story.

It REALLY fails without Scorpions' VIRGIN KILLER (do not GIS that at work, whatever you do). Or BLIND FAITH

The most ridiculous trend by far is apeing other album covers. Including the black cover and Peppers.

Needs more sticky fingers.
 
2012-09-14 01:48:50 PM  
Janelle Monae is one of the most awesome artists to come out in recent time and I don't give a good goddamn what she puts on her album covers.
 
2012-09-14 01:49:11 PM  
For no other reason than it's both tacky & cool as hell:

+1 for any album cover that could double for the mural on a Wizard/Rape Van

Another day, another Cracked list not worth your time... They just went through someone's vinyl collection and got the first 10 things they could find. 'Putting your left hand on your head'. Really?

Your opinion is so highly valued, I'm surprised the thread made it as far as it did without your input.

Can't believe they didn't have this one in the #6. Ironic Innocents category.
Hell it's probably NSFW now a days so I'll link to it. Times have changed
