I don't know - imagine this on your small profile picture under your comments where it will appear more often: nobody's gonna see the sticks and whatever other details. And it will look dull with these colors. The image we see now is way bigger but nevertheless you can't see anything. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Nevermind - Nirvana

Nah - Userguy44

12 Seven Seals - Primal Fear

This album cover would probably look great (it's a great album, too).
Let's be realistic - album covers with lots of details are not very suitable because profile pics are very small (under your comments). I think the best combination would be: dark color background with a bright accent somewhere, and less details. I have chosen my current profile picture based on these criteria. - Metal_Treasure
