The Top Ten

The Handsome Beasts - Beastiality
All I can say is What the hell! What record company is making that album! The cover is... MAD!
what the hell? the name of the album it's allready disturbing


What makes a person buy this album? Is it because of the sexy guy on the cover? Or the pig? No its out of pure stupidity

[Newest]I'm scarred for life now.

2Born This Way - Lady Gaga
Wow. I didn't know that Lady Gaga was a motorbike!
Its terrible, the album, cover, singles, videos... Everything is dark and crap and have no message.
Lady Gaga is just terrible. Trying to disguise crappy pop music as art.

3Anaconda - Nicki Minaj

4Pure Heroine - Lorde
Least creative cover in history

5My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - Kanye West
Absolutely dreadful on so many levels.

6Herbie Mann - Push Push
That beastiality album cover was kinda funny, this one is messed up. And why is Beyoncé and Rihanna on here? This is worst album COVERS; NOT worst albums. Idiots. by the way, lady gaga's is a close #2... All of her album covers are, not any specific one, all of them.

7Rihanna - Good Girl Gone Bad
She's a trashy pop artist with no meaning to her lyrics. She should not be allowed to produce music as it is nothing but an ear sore.

8Unapologetic - Rihanna

9Talk That Talk - Rihanna
It's a scary cover! ( not the deluxe version the regular one)
When I saw this I was like "what IS THAT?! "

10Britney Spears - Blackout
I like britney cover is the best

The Contenders

11Manowar - Anthology
I was hoping this one would be here! Made me laugh for several days when I first saw it in a store.
an album cover full of jocks


12Tripping Daisy - I Am an Elastic Firecracker

13X - Kylie Minogue
What is this here this cover is good

1450 Cent - Candy Shop
I'm not sure about you guys, but this cover makes me want to throw up.

15Millie Jackson - E.S.P.

16Bangerz - Miley Cyrus
With a title like that, things are bound to get very suspicious.

17Eminem - The Slim Shady LP
The album cover is sick and disgusting, a dead corpse in a bonnet wrapped around near a pier about to be thrown into the sea. I like Eminem but this is like Cannibal Corpse without the blood.


Stop hate Eminem! The album and the cover are amazing
lol I like eminem but the album cover sucks


[Newest]Best album ever ❤️

18Ween - Chocolate and Cheese
What's up with a lady's waist and belt?
This is a great album cover what

19Nelson - Because They Can
it's like those are the singers. if I seen that album I would not buy it!

20Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus
she's so ugly, and why's the Beatles Revolver album on here?


21Orleans - Waking and Dreaming
Horrible. What's I'm Sasha Fierce doing here!? STUPID


224 - Beyonce
This cover isn't bad... It's a very good album
What is beyonce doing on here? She is amazing! Britney spears should be number one!

23The Beatles - Revolver

24Jim Post - I Love My Life

25My World 2.0 - Justin Bieber

26Crosby, Stills & Nash - Live it Up

27The Ritchie Family - Bad Reputation

28Mew - And the Glass Handed Kites

32Yeezus - Kanye West

33I Am... Sasha Fierce - Beyonce

34Don't Kill the Magic - Magic!

35Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water - Limp Bizkit
Fred Durst is such a duece bag.Just look at the cover and the name of this immature album for proof.

36Nirvana - Nevermind
It's called being a man
Quite weird though
Good album bad cover
I've heard that spencer is the name of the naked baby on the front cover of the album.
The point of this is simply to be controversial, and that makes popularity! It's very clever marketing!


[Newest]The cover is fine...

37Scorpions - Virgin Killer
Just unbelievably offensive just makes the entire metal community look bad. No words...
the nude pre-adolescent girl is irritating and scary. gives me nightmare


What was even the point of it?

38John Lennon & Yoko Ono - Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins
There are many things I want to see in this world; The Great Wall of China, Stonehenge, The Pyramids. But of all these things I can proudly say that a Naked Beatle and his wife is NOT one of them!
when I saw this one, I said: WHAT THE **** WAS WRONG WITH JOHN?


39To The Extreme - Vanilla Ice
Poor rob, his years as "vanilla ice" will haunt this guy for the rest of his life. He deserves it though for this junk and the cover of it is classic very stupid cover but so funny
Vanilla ice if you ever read this, your a joke

40Guns N' Roses - Appetite for Destruction (original cover)

41Pantera - Reinventing the Steel
I like this album. But what is up with the album cover?

42Heart - Brigade

43Avenged Sevenfold - Afterlife
What! I love this cover!


44Come Clean - Puddle of Mudd

45Seether: 2002 to 2013 - Seether
I honestly think it makes them look bad.

46Green Day - Dookie
People! It's just a bunch of dogs throwing feces bombs at humans. how serious can you get? Sure it sounds dirty but it symbolizes animals standing up against bad humans and fighting for their rights.
This album has a cover of people throwing turds at each other and the city is cover in sh_t! Bad idea, Green Day!

47Sorry for Party Rocking - LMFAO

48Korn - Follow the Leader
Yeah.. The album is actually a really good album but the cover...
Eh. Its just weird.
It should be lower on the list because there are much worse album covers on this list


49Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon
Oh, don't get me started on this boring album cover! It's so generic! I don't understand why it's so iconic! It's almost as overrated as the band itself! Just a bunch of weird noises mixed in with some boring 20 minute guitar solos! One Direction is real music! Justin Bieber is real music! Maroon 5 is real music! They know how to write a song that doesn't put people to sleep!
Justin Bieber and 1 direction both suck like a black hole on Uranus!
What bad has this cover?

50Eminem - Encore
He has a gun behind his back!

51Blood On the Dance Floor - Bad Blood

66Lupe Fiasco - Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album
This is a great album, and I also actually really like its cover.
Its completely black cover with no writing or any other color besides black. It's pretty interesting...


The cover is literally nothing!


67Hardcore - Lil Kim

68Cannibal Corpse - Butchered at Birth

69Death Grips - No Love Deep Web
Is this what music has come to? Having one of the band member's dicks being shoved in my face?

70Babez for Breakfast - Lordi
Now you see why metal isn't mainstream.

72While the City Sleeps, We Rule the Streets - Cobra Starship
