Skip to comments.The Twenty-Five Worst Album Covers of All Time

Inspired by the ugliness of the new Jane's Addiction album, The Great Escape Artist, we here at List Of The Day (ok, just me and a bunch of friends with great suggestions) compiled a bunch of lists of album covers that are, in the technical sense, awful.
The list below is one where real record companies were involved and artists who sold actual records were aware that the albums would go into the stores looking like this.
Fact is, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of terrible album covers. A web-search suggests that 90 percent of them come from religious artists who believe that competent artwork is akin to committing the sin of vanity.
Enjoy these album covers that dare you to enjoy the music held within its confines.

Now you’ve done it.
we deserve it for the liberalization of America
I’ve seen far worse than what this guy has come up with. Once found a web site devoted to terrible album covers and those just blew all of these away.
Lost the bookmark to that sit though.
it’s probably called “terrible album covers.com”
I don't know whether this one belongs in the Twenty-Five Best Album Covers, or the 25-Worst.
These aren’t even close. You want absolutely horrible... go here.
I love “Animal Magnetism”
The guy at the front looks like Charlie Weis.
On that site is the “Ethel Merman Disco Album”. I think my brain just puked.
This is the worst album cover that I actually have in my collection.
BLECH!! You win. Those are definitely the worst I’ve seen.
I hate it when that happens.
One of the greatest albums ever recorded packaged in one of the worst album covers of all time.
That must have been the inspiration for the Randy Newman song.
