They will tell you that it's all about the music. If your tunes are strong, people will come! But first impressions count too, especially back in the day when these albums where released and people often made their purchases based on what looked cool in the record shop.

None of these albums covers look cool. Surely they didn't even in the darkest days of the 70's and 80's, when fashions in clothing and facial hair were at their most questionable. These are, according to Vintage Everyday, some of the worst and creepiest examples of album cover art ever dreamed up. They are so horribly bad, they're actually good. Hilariously good! Scroll down below to check them out for yourself, and don't forget to upvote your faves!
