whatever, close enough.
kicking things off with Primal Scream:
^trying to one-up Muse
Megadeth does not even come close to the majesty of the Drones artwork.
that is kind of how I feel a Megadeath cover should look
^totally a Nu Metal/Post-grunge album cover
The moment anyone saw that artwork
I was thinking about this in the shower yesterday, cos I just covered that Her tape:
but fortunately the music is on another level.
Artwork that actually makes it impossible for you to buy an album you would probably buy otherwise
with that Tortoise cover. It's so bad it makes me want disregard their entire back catalouge.
Extra points for the title too
The Primal Scream one or that. Jury's out. Both sound like they could have been coined by Jeremy and Super Hans in Peep Show.
and we can declare a winner. I just can't believe worse is possible. Well done to Skunk and the boys.
is that not only have Primal Scream & Skunk Anansie set the bar almost impossibly high in the Worst Cover contest, they're also likely to battle it out for worst album title too. Chaosmosis? Anarchytecture? These are the kind of titles I came up with when I was 16
AND pub-standard nu-metal cover bands.
less cruel later this year when my album Chillaxe Murderer is finally finished
Prince Rama - Xtreme Now
So much going on, to take in.
i saw them at primavera once and their video backdrops were all Zardoz-style science fiction stuff
How did they get their hands on the Box of Delights?
the whole bob hair marketing hook is really annoying anyway
there is literally nothing worse than unecessary over-the-top vocal acrobatics. we get it, you can sing! now shut up.
whereas Primal Scream, Skunk Anansie, Sia and Tortoise are all grotesque to the point of actively discouraging anyone from buying.
This is worse
then got a mate to knock up something asap on ms paint.
which is probably what happened.
he's put out the real artwork now, loads better
no, this is actually good
also made me check out peter de potter's other stuff, really good
it's by a real tumblr artist.
Its going for that scrap book aesthetic. You may stylistically not like it but it does what its going for pretty well.
Designer: Will this do?
Elton: Yeah, fuck it who cares?
What the steaming fuck, really.
Erm...nah can't think of words.
i sort of hope it's an 'homage' but even then it's still shit
the new kanye?
people on this site have the worst taste jesus
That's an excellent cover
who's released THAT? this could be the winner.
Aligned with shit artwork. Giving muse a run for their money
Vertigo is cool though.
If it was going to have a 'strange animal' type thing, why not a bird?
not the worst cover of the year by a long shot but just a poor effort.
But not actively offensive
This has cracked me up
quite like that even if the music is shit
i wonder if they're related
It's a beautiful drawing but an awful record sleeve
picture's lovely, got no problems with it as a record sleeve, his music's rubbish though.
Yes, I can hear you Clem Fandango
Without hearing Tommy Cooper going 'Just like that'
I'm sure I'm missing something with this one, but she looks like she's been afflicted with a terrible skin disease.
That one is really good.
It's a really ugly image that communicates nothing to me.
What do you like about it?
