Top 10 Worst Album Covers by Non-Extreme Metal Bands

When people hear "bad metal album covers", most of them think of creepy, gory or weird cover arts usually associated with extreme metal (not all extreme metal album covers are gory or bad though).
But there are bad album covers by Non-Extreme Metal Bands that aren't necessarily creepy or gory.
Here are some of them.

The Top Ten

1 Pink Bubbles Go Ape - Helloween

And music on the album wasn't any better... Neither the album title...
Oh, and pink is the best color you can mention in a metal album (sarcasm) - Metal_Treasure

2 Blow Your Speakers - Manowar

Unfortunately in this image you can't see the semi-naked sexy ladies (it was probably censored) - Metal_Treasure

3 Metal Magic - Pantera
4 Better Than Raw - Helloween

Honestly,i have never seem glam metal album covers with sexy semi-naked girls,but I have seen many Manowar covers just like that.One of them is in this very list.Oh,and Manowar are ''True Metal''. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

Hey, Helloween, Are You Glam Metal? (pun intended - they have a song 'Are You Metal? ').
Moreover, Glam Metal type of covers with sexy semi-naked girls on them were out of fashion in 1998... - Metal_Treasure

5 When Hell Won't Have You - Split Beaver

1982. This is their only album, thank god. EM says they are NWOBHM from the UK.
But this sexy cover is so not metal... - Metal_Treasure

6 Anthology - Manowar

Did the actual band members look like this shirtless? - Alkadikce

7 Les Fils du M├ętal - Satan Jokers

It looks like a glam metal cover but EM says they are Heavy Metal (France). - Metal_Treasure

8 Narita - Riot

Yeah,this band has very weird album covers - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

9 Into Glory Ride - Manowar
10 California Metal - Barren Cross, Deliverance, Hero, Guardian, Neon Cross, Mastedon

A compilation album released in 1987, with songs by 6 unsigned Christian metal bands similar to Stryper. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Dance of Death - Iron Maiden

I was sure this would be here. - Alkadikce

It doesn't even look finished. This album has one of my favorite Iron Maiden songs, "Paschendale", but the album cover itself is atrocious. - cjWriter1997
