Best Album Covers

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Green Day - American Idiot

So iconic. Why is this so low?

62 The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced?
63 Arctic Monkeys - Am
64 Evanescence - Evanescence
65 Megadeth - Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?
66 Iron Maiden - Somewhere In Time

This cover is the best on the list

67 The Clash - London Calling

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!?!

68 L'Arc~en~Ciel - Real

The statue and the city in the background made this cover beautiful. - ronluna

69 Linkin Park - Living Things

This album cover is so awesome looking. Really creative, and it's also a great album. When an album has a cover like this, you know it's bound to be good.

70 David Bowie - Aladdin Sane V 1 Comment
71 Beyonce - Lemonade
72 Rainbow - Rising
73 Megadeth - Dystopia
74 The Beatles - Abbey Road

What, Abbey road that low? - waldo

75 Robbie Williams - The Greatest Hits

One of the most sexiest covers that's for sure

76 Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti

THE ALL TIME COOLEST LOOKING ALBUM COVER EVER. It matches the music on the album, and LED ZEPPELIN IS INDISPUTABLY THE BEST MUSIC ARTIST OF ALL TIME. Yes, that includes THE Beatles. Led Zep's name is carved in stone at the top of the building, symbolizing their harder side. A sad little guy is mourning on the stairs, symbolizing their softer side. THE LETTERS THAT SPELL OUT "PHYSICAL GRAFFITI" ON THE WINDOWS ARE JUST THERE FOR AWESOMENESS. The best part? The building they used is still there! You can GO AND GET A PICTURE TAKEN NEXT TO PHYSICAL GRAFFITI! (Actually, the best part is the music. Not a bad song on it! It's my second favorite album, #1 being LZ IV. But this list isn't about the actual music, it's about the cover, and in that sense, PG takes the cake. ) I don't know how people could think that Pink Floyd's DSOTM is better than this. WHAT'S SO SYMBOLISTIC ABOUT A PRISM REFLECTING LIGHT? In my book, it should be swapped with PG.

77 30 Seconds To Mars - A Beautiful Lie
78 Blink-182 - Enema of the State
79 Muse - Origin of Symmetry

Badass album cover for an awesome album!

80 Queen - World of the News

Fun fact: This cover scared Seth MacFarlane (the creator of Family Guy) as a child.

I wonder if the title of this album have been written wrong just to see if some one would comment on it. - SuperAJ303
