First time I saw this one as a kid, I was captivated . Sort of freaked out, couldn't look away.  I have yet to listen to the album..

Nice topic. Here’s an iconic one, at least for me. From the 80’s.

I've always loved this one from Devo - inclusion of a Chi Chi Rodriguez head shot is wonderfully bizarre.

What? No Heino? No Nana? What about the guy with a neck beard only who did a dulcimer record?

The early interwebs was so entertaining, all these different websites with hundreds of bad album covers.

Something I've thought about recently was the Gorky band name generator.
Eh, nevermind...

Sometimes the minimal, clean look grab me. Both of these are strong albums all the way through.

Little me liked reading the hand written notes on the inside.

The inside of Allive II is something else!


This might be one of my all time favorites

I did Long Cold Winter for a German tire company commercial and my throat never forgave me.

Yeah that song's a gear grinder. No wonder he lost his voice. He tours now and occasionally pulls off some good stuff but other times he's cutting corners - singing an octave down, holding the mic to the crowd etc..

Great thread idea. One of the downsides to going from vinyl to CDs was no longer seeing the album covers 12'' x 12''

Yip. And the off center slightly crooked, The Beatles only adds to it. Not to mention the number stamp**
