Top 10 Most Boring Album Covers

Have you seen an album cover that has absolutely nothing in it? Here is a list about it just to show and I think you're going to be seeing a lot more of these albums than you have in any time. Here's the list about the most lame and most unappealing album covers.

The Top Ten

1 Tri Repetae - Autechre

That thing on the corner doesn't count as part of the album cover. This cover is just one solid color. I can see what it is but I can't describe it much. More like dark beige I think. - LightningStrike

A work of art

I hate beige... - Camaro6

2 The Beatles - The Beatles

Very iconic. How? I don't know. This album cover is just plain boring except that it has the words "The Beatles" in it. - LightningStrike

Iconic, but they had more potential for the cover. - Not_A_Weeaboo

3 This is Spinal Tap - Spinal Tap

Are you people that lazy that you have to make the entire album cover black? Well, that thing on the top doesn't count as part of the cover that's why. But it's there. - LightningStrike


4 Music for Films - Brian Eno

Well, at least they have the names on two corners. But the whole thing is just dumb. - LightningStrike

5 Newwave - Dat Adam

Just black screen

6 Suck It and See - Arctic Monkeys

Suck what and see? The record cover? Do I really need to put my mouth on the record? I see a damaged album that's all. - LightningStrike

The cover totally sucks. Does it suck "it", though? Does it see? - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

7 Brotherhood - New Order

You really want to take a picture of a peace of wood and just make it an album cover? What a lame exception. - LightningStrike

I hate this

8 Best of Nirvana - Nirvana

It's just the Nirvana logo and that's it. Nothing else, it's just a black background with the logo. - LightningStrike

9 Still - Joy Division

It's "Still" another one of these album covers with one single color on the background with tiny words. At least they have that logo above it. - LightningStrike

10 Live Peace in Toronto 1969 - John Lennon

Do we really need to take a picture of the sky? With one boring cloud? Or how about listen to that music darn it. - LightningStrike

I wouldn't say it's boring. - winterbreeze

The Newcomers

? Velvet Underground & Nico - The Velvet Underground

The Contenders

11 XX - The XX

It's not a cover that makes an album great, it's the songs that the album contains.

Just an X. - Userguy44

12 Yeezus - Kanye West

Not a fan of Ye but this album cover is lit. - DarkBoi-X

Lil Pump >>> Kanye West - LilPumpTheGod

13 Antics - Interpol
14 Four - Bloc Party

If it's four than why would there be four boring rings on the cover and not something else? You know this is just laziness right here. - LightningStrike

15 Beyoncè - Beyoncè

Just a boring pink font on a black background. Booorrriiinggg

I personally think on here it works. While yes, basically it's just a unicolored background with the artist name on it, the font and its color make it lool classily minimalistic, much like a box for a luxury perfume. - Martin_Canine

16 Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album, Pt. 1 - Lupe Fiasco
17 No Line on the Horizon - U2
18 America - 30 Seconds to Mars

Let it be an indication of how half-assed this album is from how half-assed this cover, or should I say covers are. - SuperSonic17

19 If You're Reading This It's Too Late - Drake
20 Lp2 - Sunny Day Real Estate
21 Back in Black - AC/DC
22 Black Album - Metallica

This isn't boring to me. I actually find it very classy. - Metal_Treasure

23 Who Do Ya (Love) - KC and the Sunshine Band
24 Chrome - Dat Adam
25 Until One - Swedish House Mafia
26 It's Classy, Not Classic - Breathe Carolina
27 3 - Glashaus 3 - Glashaus
28 2nd to None - Elvis Presley

It looks absolutely horrible, and definitely not like a widely released official compilation. Elvis' head randomly cut off at the side, and the "2" is just a basic Arial font. This looks completely homemade.

Fortunately, over here they sold a version with an alternative cover that resembles his previous compilation "ELV1S", just in silver instead of gold. - Martin_Canine

29 Back to Black (Deluxe) - Amy Winehouse

Just words.
- TheDuttyGyal

30 My Pet Goat - John Gibbons

Too much record label. Not enough artwork. It could have been a bit like Elderbrook’s Capricorn cover.
- TheDuttyGyal

31 Blind Guardian - Live

Who added this? This is one of the greatest, most atmospheric cover artworks I have ever seen. - Martin_Canine

32 Und Weida? - Seiler Und Speer
33 Love Lust Faith + Dreams - 30 Seconds to Mars
34 YouTube Money Mixtape - Yung Schmoobin
35 The Endless River - Pink Floyd
36 Kid A - Radiohead
37 Ok Computer - Radiohead

How is this boring? - Pointingfingers

38 The 1975 - A Brief Inquiry to Online Relationships
39 Vitalogy - Pearl Jam
40 Live at Leeds - The Who
41 At the Edge of Time - Blind Guardian

Cheesy album.

42 Panopticon - Isis
