The Ohio Players had a run of strange covers.

The “Fire” cover had a woman wearing nothing but a fire hose, the “Honey” album had a ... well, you get the idea.

IIRC, there was an article about bad album covers and a chick sitting on a toilet with her undies at her ankle was among those listed.

Millie Jackson was the name of the artist.

Funny stuff, though Dusty over at Salami Tsunami (formerly Pork Tornado) still has my favorite collection of bad album covers:

I remember that Orleans album cover from when I was in high school. I always thought it was a weird photo.

I have no idea. I’ve honestly never heard of any of the acts on that list except for Orleans. :-)

I like those, especially the baby one. I dig the Eddie in Iron Maiden album covers too.(some a little too dark for here)

Yet the lead singers of both Megadeth and Iron Maiden are solid conservatives. (Mustaine even endorsed Rick Santorum in this campaign)

Frank Frazetta.

This is a link to a Polish website that has a lot of fantasy art, etc. Don't see any Frazetta though.

The original post was about "trends" but how can I not mention these non-trend covers. The Beatles butcher cover: And the dead members of Lynyrd Skynyrd standing in flames released just a couple of months before the plane crash that took their lives:

I have the original released vinyl LP of Street Survivors. IIRC right after the plane crash no further copies were made until the re-release of same album but different cover, then finally the original cover was re-released with the flames background.

I knew Mustaine was a conservative independent. I didn’t know Bruce Dickinson was conservative. I always figured he was like Motorhead’s Lemmy and hated all politicians and all isms.

The big joke in “local cover band” photos is the “old brick wall” meme. Seems like everyone did it.
