Top 10 Best Album Covers

The Top Ten

Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon Product Image

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.

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.

Even if you are the minority like myself that doesn't like the album, you can admit that the cover is intriguing with the rainbow coming from the pyramid against the black background. It really catches your eye and sticks with you.

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

The Beatles - Abbey Road The Beatles - Abbey Road Product Image

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.

Who doesn't know this one. Black and white silhouette on a cheap T and you know what it is. The Best.

It might not be the best, but it's the most famous and iconic. It gets my vote.

The only cover so great it appeared twice!

The Velvet Underground & Nico - The Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground & Nico - The Velvet Underground Product Image

Yes, its only a banana, but, its designed by andy warhol, and he knows his stuff.

I like bananas

Haha this is just a fkin banana


The Beatles - Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band The Beatles - Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Product Image

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.

Instantly recognizable and the most expensive album cover they made, all the actors, the fancy uniforms, just so classic.

As far as the Beatle's music goes this albums amazing but not their best release. But as far as their album covers go this is truly a work of art.

I like to spend a while picking out who's who in the background. Apparently Hitler was originally gonna be in there

Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin Product Image
Patti Smith - Horses Patti Smith - Horses Product Image
Nirvana - Nevermind Nirvana - Nevermind  Product Image

What?! The only cool/artistic items on this list are Dark Side Of The Moon and Nevermind. The rest are just pictures of famous people in weird poses. Toptens seems to attract all the fanboys...

Very deep meaning (greed is brainwashed into us by the media from a very young age)

This picture is awesome. A A baby swimming under water lolz. Nirvana forever.

Naked baby for the win

The Notorious B.I.G. - Ready to Die The Notorious B.I.G. - Ready to Die Product Image
Iron Maiden - Number of the Beast Iron Maiden - Number of the Beast Product Image

How is this underneath Evanescence and Jackie Evancho?

Eddie will destroy the other album covers

Almost every Iron Maiden cover is awesome.

Iron Maiden have the best album covers.

Evanescence - Fallen Evanescence - Fallen Product Image

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

Best cover ever. Amy is really pretty on this cover.

Fallen cover is definitely number 1.

She is so cute and beautiful.
Amy is the best singer.

The girls are just to fine. This is not art it's the real thing . Ann and Nancy looking great.

The Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers The Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers Product Image

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.

Ew no. That's just gross. No one wants to see some dude's crotch.

Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here Product Image

Metallica - Ride the Lightning Metallica - Ride the Lightning Product Image
The Clash - London Calling The Clash - London Calling Product Image

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...

Come on people! What could be cooler than Paul Simenon smashing a bass guitar in black and white!?!

Pretty cool photo

Metallica - Master of Puppets Metallica - Master of Puppets Product Image

Depressing but it's a really good one, clever too.

Green Day - Dookie Green Day - Dookie Product Image

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.

This is probably Green Day's best album cover ever. It really relates to other peope. Dookie is really a cool album cover.

I find it funny. monkeys throwing poop everywhere and stuff. awesome album too

Pink Floyd - A Momentary Lapse of Reason Pink Floyd - A Momentary Lapse of Reason Product Image

They spent so much money on making this. Thousands of beds that we're loaded on trucks is the major part if this masterpiece.
