Worst Album Covers

The Top Ten

1 The Handsome Beasts - Beastiality

All I can say is What the hell! What record company is making that album! The cover is... MAD!

What makes a person buy this album? Is it because of the sexy guy on the cover? Or the pig? No its out of pure stupidity

what the hell? the name of the album it's allready disturbing - LucasMota

That's just sick, but the actual music is awesome

2 Humanure - Cattle Decapitation

It looks like the cover of Dude Ranch by Blink-182 if the cow all of a sudden started eating blood or bleeding and the sky turned dark with the area having a drought. That being said, Dude Ranch turned dark! So is Blink-182 death metal now? - HollowAnime

Worse than Anaconda. Should be #1

Just what I wanted to see! (sarcasm)

Cattle Decapitation needs to retire... - Ananya

3 Mayhem - Dawn of the Black Hearts

So bad it's on here twice!

Straight up cruel that they used a band member's suicide for an album cover. - djpenquin999

"I am not a human being, this is just a dream and I will soon wake"
Anyways Dead would have been okay with it... - Lucretia

It's a dead human and it's not on number one?! As djpenquin999 mentioned it's just cruel.

(I like Metal.) - Fretto

4 Tripping Daisy - I Am an Elastic Firecracker

Looks like they attempted and failed to rip off the cover to Talking Heads- Remain In Light.

5 Born This Way - Lady Gaga

Wow. I didn't know that Lady Gaga was a motorbike!

Its terrible, the album, cover, singles, videos... Everything is dark and crap and have no message.

Lady Gaga is just terrible. Trying to disguise crappy pop music as art.

Oh I know, one of her parents is a motorcycle and that's why she's like that

6 Herbie Mann - Push Push

Gross ass old man shirtless showing his man boobs

That beastiality album cover was kinda funny, this one is messed up. And why is Beyoncé and Rihanna on here? This is worst album COVERS; NOT worst albums. Idiots. by the way, lady gaga's is a close #2... All of her album covers are, not any specific one, all of them.

7 Britney Spears - Blackout

I like britney cover is the best

This cover is actually appealing

Not a bad cover at all. - HollowAnime

Wasnt she like bald when this came out

8 Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water - Limp Bizkit

Fred Durst is such a duece bag.Just look at the cover and the name of this immature album for proof.

I guess it fits the title? But still, WTSF

9 Manowar - Anthology

I was hoping this one would be here! Made me laugh for several days when I first saw it in a store.

They look like He-Man action figures.

an album cover full of jocks - ronluna

10 Rihanna - Good Girl Gone Bad

She's a trashy pop artist with no meaning to her lyrics. She should not be allowed to produce music as it is nothing but an ear sore.

How is this album cover BAD? Its just a pretty photo album of her! >:O - spodermanfan1000

I actually really like this cover art. - NiktheWiz

The Newcomers

? Red Pill Blues - Maroon 5
? #NEWGOREORDER - Borgore

The Contenders

11 Hefty Fine - Bloodhound Gang

Disgusting - christangrant

12 Butthole Surfers - Electriclarryland

It's a pencil jammed in somebone's ear with blood coming out. What?

Ouch.

Try lookinga t this album and not cringing - Himalayansalt

13 50 Cent - Candy Shop

I'm not sure about you guys, but this cover makes me want to throw up.

14 Scorpions - Virgin Killer

Just unbelievably offensive just makes the entire metal community look bad. No words...

the nude pre-adolescent girl is irritating and scary. gives me nightmare - ronluna

The original album cover with the naked preteen was enough for them to be labeled as child molesters - SirSkeletorThe3rd

I love the Scorpions, but this album cover is pure garbage!

15 Yesterday and Today - Beatles

The band are dressed in butcher smocks and hold raw meat and decapitated naked baby dolls. All this seems to make the band happy and they smile.
This is the controversial original cover aka the "butcher" cover. It was quickly replaced with a band photo. - Metal_Treasure

16 Eminem - The Slim Shady LP

I'm a die hard Eminem fan and while I was listening to his song Brain Damage, the album cover caught my attention. You don't really notice it though. In the trunk of his car, there's a corpse, which I'm imagining is Kim, because if you look at Em in the album cover, a little kid, probably Hailie, is next to him. This is probably a reference to the song "'97 Bonnie And Clyde" listen to it if so you'll know what I mean.

Also Brain Damage is a reference to the Pink Floyd song-Brain Damage - Arnoldlayne

The album and the cover is meant to be funny because Infinite wasn't a success when it came out, then in 1997 he came up with the slim shady idea and made his music funny as a brand new style to get attention

Stop hate Eminem! The album and the cover are amazing

Most Eminem covers are trash. - because
