Unintentionally Hilarious Album/Single Covers

  1. I love how the font size for the song title is MASSIVE but K Lo' name herself is tiny as if they made a conscious decision of which of the two would sell this.

    Areatha is seriously one of my fave artists ever but... sis doesn't always have the most flattering artwork.
  3. Every single thing about this is a disaster. The font alone is causing me extreme duress / 2007 flashbacks.

    I don't know if Manowar were already posted but this photo sums exactly how I always feel about metal musicians trying to be Manly and Macho and unintentionally ending up looking like a very failed Village People tribute act:

    ^ I love the "really... you wanna sing Mariah Carey" expression on her face.
  6. What sort of font fuckery is that?

  7. I'm glad I visited this thread, it made me google Kasey Chambers to see what she's been up to in recent years and I learned her daughter's name is Poet Poppin Nicholson. I'm sorry, but kiii and also, why?
  8. "So, there's this new Rolling Stones single... what do you want for the cover art, Mick?"
    "Just take a still from the video with me in it. Can't go wrong, can you?"

    The back cover is what really sells this one -- her coming out of the gift box like she's an exotic dancer coming out of a cake; her suit that surely was supposed to be inspired by Marlene Dietrich but is really more like third groomsmen from the left at a shotgun wedding; and the pièce de résistance, her glazed over facial expression and her OK hand gesture that screams, "I know it's the '80s now but do I look sufficiently foolish enough? Great. Let's call it a day then because mama could use a nap."

    I mean how did this get put out the world I don't know.....

  11. Ansel Elgort sounds like an anagram.
  12. It would be a more fitting picture if it were a woman showing off her hairy pit, as in "bird" set free. Y'know?
  13. That is some extreme photoshopping. She is emerging from his groin.
  14. Never gets old.


  16. Yep... pretty much every Manowar promo shot is like this. They've disowned this compilation, by the way. I'd say it's out of shame, but they are famously without that.

    Trust me, the hole of bad metal albums covers goes far, far deeper. I actually have this album and I like it, but...

    Two things - the photo itself with the moody look and speedy background but also the fact that someone out there thought there was actual demand for a Deluxe Edition of this single. I wish there had been a physical release with a bonus DVD with the video, making of the video, an interview and Tracy Shaw live in concert.
  19. This generic white actor dude came out with a single? SCREAM.
