All of these are golden, but...


...that cover seems to imply that DJ Pooh is a literal turd, so it wins.

jake_lex: WhippingBoy: List fails will not prompt a FBI investigation without Scorpion's "Virgin Killer" original cover.


Heh... the funny thing is that I was just about to post the image when my common sense starting tingling...

Pants full of macaroni!!: I actually have that thing (record club freebie). It's kind of a hoot the first couple times.

And he got a few of the original artists to contribute, I think Dio is doing background vocals...

Recently, Heino decided to do his own version of that and created some artificial controversy in Germany.
Yes, Heino, the German "folk" singer, who could probably do 30 bad album covers all by himself. Including my favorite:

If Germans ever argue that they're really not that weird, just uttering the word "Heino" quickly puts them in their place.

In an unrelated note, I always like Asia's covers, don't see what's wrong with that example. I was a bit disappointed when I found out that the actual music wasn't that spaced out, but pretty generic stadium rock.

Was surprised to see only a couple of the "Standard Worst Album Covers List" entries.  Where was Devastatin' Dave, Ken, Joyce, Tino and all those self-released gospel albums?  (Maybe they weren't in the '80s and '90s.....)

Ryker's Peninsula: I'd suggest Poison's "Look What the Cat Dragged In".  First time I saw that cover, I thought those were some of the ugliest women I'd ever seen.

Wasn't just you.

Jesus Christ. The front is nothing. You have to see the back cover of Van Halen 5150 to really experience a full assault on the senses. Yes, that's Eddie Van Halen in the black Duran Duran coat and big fruity hair-do.
