Best Album Covers
The Top Ten
This is so ugly
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 better17 Comments
A bunch of people? - Userguy44
I saw Marilyn Monroe
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.6 Comments
14. This is the most iconic not even album cover but picture of all time. - OmegaRankersClone
ICONIC - failross
HOW IS THIS SO LOW? #14? IT'S MAYBE THE MOST ICONIC OVERALL PHOTOGRAPH OF ALL TIME!
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. - BKAllmighty8 Comments
I like bananas - LightningStrike
Yes, its only a banana, but, its designed by andy warhol, and he knows his stuff. - RecklessGreed
Haha this is just a fkin banana
It's a... Banana2 Comments
Iron Maiden have the best album covers. - Userguy44
It's Eddie. Enough said.
Eddie will destroy the other album covers
Almost every Iron Maiden cover is awesome. - Metalfan21122 Comments
Awesome. - Userguy44
Never judge a book by its cover... - InsertCleverName
Let's take a moment of silence for the fan-boys who voted for their favorite album rather their favorite ALBUM COVER like this one. Apparently putting a close-up image of yourself as your album cover makes up for a good one - Joeljohns249
Um why this is like just a face whyis it 6. - PanagosBoi17
Best cover ever. Amy is really pretty on this cover. - 05yusuf09
Fallen cover is definitely number 1.3 Comments
Underrated cover - OmegaRankersClone
The first thing you see in the best album of all time.
Looks awesome - Userguy44
In my opinion City of Evil has a much better album cover
Nightmare has a fantastic album cover
The girls are just to fine. This is not art its the real thing . Ann and Nancy looking great.
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.
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.
They spent so much money on making this. Thousands of beds that we're loaded on trucks is the major part if this masterpiece. - LightningStrike
If you don't like this album cover then your Heart is not beating. The too best looking girls in ROCK.........
The cover shows what is the music like and I think that's what cover is supposed to do
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...1 Comment
Bring this to #1. Please. - MaxPap
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
The album isn't even that great, but the art is beautiful and makes for a great poster
Why is muse so low. They make the best cover art in my opinion along with Yes, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, and Coldplay. - SammySpore
Great album art for a subpar album
This album cover is instantly recognisable, it's always used on iPod touch displays in adverts because it looks so good!
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.
Yes - 12cc
Depressing but its a really good one, clever too. - PotBellyPup
So iconic. Why is this so low?
When I see this I think “My heart is beating from me” from homecoming.
I saw this in the 80's and was instantly taken by it. Awesome music and an instant fan is what followed.
It may not be the God Lil Pump but this album cover is really, REALLY awesome. - LilPumpTheGod
EASILY THE BEST
Oh, I never realized those were pills. Pretty resembling of what the album is about.
It looks so cool, and is a amazing album by Eminem! - reallyevilman5 Comments
just love her "fierce" look in here! - reigne27
It's my favorite from them! I actually have a shirt of this! - Misfire
Is this the real life
Is this just fantasy
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality - LightningStrike
Quite creepy looking album cover, confusing how its from the music video bohemian rhapsody yet it was made before it. - PotBellyPup
Iconic photo of them.1 Comment
Not big on RATM but this album cover is awesome!
Demon Days is bae.
My favorite, so cool. - JoLeKosovo
This has to be it. Yes Blackmore sounds better but still.
I loved what the guy before me wrote - "Mount Deepmore". I would add "Mount Blackmore" - Metal_Treasure
The most famous image of Bowie!
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 love too see this underrated album on this list. I do love this cover. The piano covered with snow and the amazing landscape behind...
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
One of the most intricately detailed covers of all time (if not THE most) - Metal_Treasure
Great cover, and great album overall. - Metarock
This cover is the best on the list
Their best album and best album cover! Really beautiful design with the flower of life being the main focus. - 10Jackson
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.
The album cover is one of the only good things about mania (in my opinion...if you like mania, I won’t judge)
This cover sums up what The Cars were all about. - PetSounds
