Best Album Covers
The Top Ten
This album cover is so simple, but after listening to the album, it will stick with you for the rest of your life. The spectrum that emerges from the prism is representative of different topics in life, each covered by a different song on the album. Truly a god among men when it comes to album covers. - c0mf0rta61ynum6
This is the only album cover on here that is good, sorry but its true. The only good ones is this and the one on the items list. Sorry, but why do I always find heart or sarah brightman on every single music list? , anyway, not trying to hate on this list but its just I always see heart on a music list. - AmINumberOneYet
Most recognizable album cover. The light coming in represents the unity, the prism represents society and the spectrum represents disbanded unity. Just shows how a picture can speak 1000 words. And the music is even better
Both simple and meaningful, love it. - MetarockV 15 Comments
Instantly recognizable and the most expensive album cover they made, all the actors, the fancy uniforms, just so classic. - beatles
Easily the best... It sums up the whole revolution that not only The Beatles themselves influenced, but all those that came before them at the time. A perfect cover for a perfect album.
Trully, just epic. if you say it sucks and you have not listen to it then why do you say it sucks - maxwarawa
A bunch of people? - Userguy44V 6 Comments

Naked baby for the win
Very deep meaning (greed is brainwashed into us by the media from a very young age) - Lord28
This album cover is awesome Kurt made an inspiration to this album cover :))
Overrated. - Userguy44V 4 Comments
In my opinion City of Evil has a much better album cover
Nightmare has a fantastic album cover
Looks awesome - Userguy44
Eddie will destroy the other album covers
How is this underneath Evanescence and Jackie Evancho? - naFrovivuS
Almost every Iron Maiden cover is awesome. - Metalfan2112

What even is this album cover? - Userguy44
The girls are just to fine. This is not art its the real thing . Ann and Nancy looking great.
This one is have tobe on top of the list. This album is the best of all. Greetings from Lithuania!
That's ridiculous you guys probably only voted for this because you like the album
That is 14 years old? ! Hope her Dad keeps his 12 gauge nice and clean.
Jackie Evancho has a classic voice. One of the best Classical Crossover artists of all time. This 14 year old young women has a sense of music far beyond her years. Can't wait for Awakening to be released.
Classical beauty and laser beam eyes
Cute! - Userguy44V 9 Comments
There are albums listed higher than this that have artwork that I have never seen or simply don't know since there's no picture beside the entry. How is this lower? It should be #1! I'm horrified to see that it didn't even make the top 3. - BKAllmighty
It might not be the best, but it's the most famous and iconic. It gets my vote.
This is what made The Beatles so iconic.
The cover itself is iconic but the Beatles were the BIGGEST band of the decade, so this itself was not much. - isaaonrtdmtr
Who doesn't know this one. Black and white silhouette on a cheap T and you know what it is. The Best.V 2 Comments
I love the original Rolling Stones cover "Sticky Fingers" but I also love "Too Fast For Love" the motley crue tribute to the stones.. I'm a big motley crue and stones fan.
If you don't like this album cover then your Heart is not beating. The too best looking girls in ROCK.........
I think this cover represents animals tired of taking crap from humans so they decide to fight back using their own crap. Literally!
There's so much going on in the album cover! This is my favorite with the resistance by muse close behind.
i find it funny. monkeys throwing poop everywhere and stuff. awesome album too - pauler94
This is probably Green Day's best album cover ever. It really relates to other peope. Dookie is really a cool album cover.
God this album introduced me to rock music and will always carry a special place in my heart. The vocals, the rawness in the lyrics and music itself. One of the best albums of modern days still. It sucks that Chester had to leave this world, guess all that anger and despair came from somewhere, we all fight our battles, and in the end I doesn't always matter. Rip, music legend.
Linkin Park's best album for me - foxmcloud21
Hybrid Theory has a very creative cover...
COME ON LP SOLDIERS, HYBRID THEORY IS NUMBER 1!
Image as rock. Anger. Lashing out at the very thing that supports you. It's this one or The Who's "Who's Next" with the group urinating on a monolith. Talk about being pissed off... - mgenet
Come on people! What could be cooler than Paul Simenon smashing a bass guitar in black and white!?!
Pretty fking cool photo
I saw this in the 80's and was instantly taken by it. Awesome music and an instant fan is what followed.
just love her "fierce" look in here! - reigne27
Bring this to #1. Please. - MaxPap
The only cover so great it appeared twice! - Dominicmgm
Oh look, a duplicate. - naFrovivuS
What, Abbey road that low? - waldo
Oh, I never realized those were pills. Pretty resembling of what the album is about. - isaaonrtdmtr
It looks so cool, and is a amazing album by Eminem! - reallyevilman
I love the way it looks! Relapse refill too! - eminemgreenday
EASILY THE BESTV 4 Comments
Yes - 12cc
Not big on RATM but this album cover is awesome!
Demon Days is bae.
Album by the most greatest artist Eminem
The most famous image of Bowie!
Great cover, classic, but you really need to look at both the front and back covers, at the same time of course. The front and back covers are a single painting, a single thought.
I love too see this underrated album on this list. I do love this cover. The piano covered with snow and the amazing landscape behind...
When you hear the beautiful songs in this album you can feel yourself being in this cover. Playing piano by the snowy mountains. - MaxPap
I'm voting for the original of course.
The newer one is ok, but the banned cover is an awesome piece of art.
Horrible cover. Seriously five skulls?
That's what creative about it the skulls with the band member's hair styles. - OliveBranch222
Mount Deepmore - isaaonrtdmtr
Great cover, and great album overall. - Metarock
This cover is the best on the list
Quite creepy looking album cover, confusing how its from the music video bohemian rhapsody yet it was made before it. - PotBellyPup
It actually inspired the music video!
Iconic photo of them.
No! Worst! don't make the music industry into porn!
This album cover is stunning. I was really impressed with it when I first saw it. The name of the album is great as well. And this is my favourite album right now and definitely their best one. The combination between the songs, the artwork, the cover and the album name... It's not for everyone though.
