84 Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti

THE ALL TIME COOLEST LOOKING ALBUM COVER EVER. It matches the music on the album, and LED ZEPPELIN IS INDISPUTABLY THE BEST MUSIC ARTIST OF ALL TIME. Yes, that includes THE Beatles. Led Zep's name is carved in stone at the top of the building, symbolizing their harder side. A sad little guy is mourning on the stairs, symbolizing their softer side. THE LETTERS THAT SPELL OUT "PHYSICAL GRAFFITI" ON THE WINDOWS ARE JUST THERE FOR AWESOMENESS. The best part? The building they used is still there! You can GO AND GET A PICTURE TAKEN NEXT TO PHYSICAL GRAFFITI! (Actually, the best part is the music. Not a bad song on it! It's my second favorite album, #1 being LZ IV. But this list isn't about the actual music, it's about the cover, and in that sense, PG takes the cake. ) I don't know how people could think that Pink Floyd's DSOTM is better than this. WHAT'S SO SYMBOLISTIC ABOUT A PRISM REFLECTING LIGHT? In my book, it should be swapped with PG.

85 Blink-182 - Enema of the State Blink-182 - Enema of the State
86 Beyonce - I Am...Sasha Fierce Beyonce - I Am...Sasha Fierce
87 Queen - World of the News Queen - World of the News

Fun fact: This cover scared Seth MacFarlane (the creator of Family Guy) as a child.

88 Lonerism - Tame Impala Lonerism - Tame Impala
89 The Who - Sell Out The Who - Sell Out
90 Nightfall in Middle Earth - Blind Guardian Nightfall in Middle Earth - Blind Guardian V 1 Comment
91 Kelly Clarkson - My December Kelly Clarkson - My December

beatiful, kind of like a symbolic painting - ilovekelly75

92 Skillet - Comatose Skillet - Comatose
93 Disturbed - Ten Thousand Fists Disturbed - Ten Thousand Fists

Disturbed's all covers are great.From Sicknes to Immortalized all the covers are really well made and give a great sense of creativity to the band...And the Guy became the symbol of the band too.

94 Judas Priest - British Steel Judas Priest - British Steel
95 Günther - Pleasureman Günther - Pleasureman
96 Cheap Trick - In Color Cheap Trick - In Color

What you have is two great-looking rock god hunks on motorcycles on the front cover in color and then on the back cover you have two nerds on bicycles in black and white. And to top it off, the album was one of the greatest of the 70s.
