Worst album covers

Newsday is running this poll of a collection of really bad album covers, and is looking to find which is the worst of all time, and looking at them, it is a great source of unintentional hilarity. Some of these are just awful.

My picks for the worst would be "Joyce" and "Ken - By Request Only". I would have said that the worst by far would be the "Cody Matherson" one, looking at it a little more, I realized that one was a fake. At first when I saw it, I was thinking that the Simpsons writers used this cover as a reference to Kirk Van Houten's album, but looking at it further, it looks too photoshopped to be real. The rest, well....

Any other covers that are not on this list? Or did they pick a good selection?

Oh, and I find it funny that the fake one is right now 4th in the polls. It is as if they got pranked themselves doing this poll.

Re: Worst album covers

This comes up every now and then, the same covers on the list everytime. They're all horrid. How the music industry went from some pretty good album covers in the 60s and then went right to shit in the 70s, I don't know.

Wanda Jackson and blow-dried 70s Christian and folk singers, right?

Wow.

But I'd bet good money on the fact there's an entire, dark, sect of fetishists who love women taking dumps and this is one of their favorites.

Probably.

I guess that cover is one way to have your album stand out on a shelf with others. People were probably doing double takes as they walked by.

Not exactly "dark" - the whole "two girls one cup" video is one of the most popular out there.
