40 Worst Album Covers of All Time

If you shouldn’t ‘judge a book by its cover,’ then the same rule will probably also apply to music album covers? Or maybe it’s the absolute opposite because the album cover art should display the personality behind the music and give us a hint of what’s to come?

Most of the time, we post only the best works from the best artists, but sometimes it is far more entertaining to look at the worst examples!

Take a look at our list of the worst album covers of all times. Do you think that a cover with a white middle-aged gentleman named “A Taste of Dick Black’ properly represents his harmonica skills? Or the guy named Tino cover with the cream gym shorts? What kind of music should be behind that weird picture? Don’t ask no more, because it’s this.

If you are ready to scroll down and take a look of our compilation of the worst of the best album covers, please beware that it can severely damage your taste in art and design. But if you still want to view these terrible covers, be sure to consider this list of Creative Product Packaging Designs to reduce the harm. OK?

Now, take a look at these album cover fails – those are so much more than just funny pictures!

i guess if you don't get the reference, you'd think The Frivolous Five's Sour Cream & Other Delights was just plain cheeky... It's a great take-off on the Herb Alpert's Whipped Cream album.. BTW some of scariest record art ever done was done on children's albums.
