Here is the last thread, from 2003.

http://www.zappa.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.p ... sc&start=0

Crapped out during the software change. Disappointing considering how funny some of this shit was. I thought it might be interesting to revisit this thread. Here are some of the highlights.

This was the last post in the thread, made in May of 2007: http://www.zappa.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.p ... &start=202

Since then, there must have been dozens of albums with terrible covers released, and there are still many more earlier ones that haven't been posted yet. Post some of your (least) favorites here! 8)

This entry is personal. I completely hold myself responsible for the following entry and realize this could get me killed.

How did somebody this goodlooking end up like that?
And the back is even worse!

I've got a soft spot for most Iron Maiden album covers, but this one is truly lamentable.

Quite possibly the most overrated album in the history of recorded music as well. James and Lars are total assholes too.

OMG, I can't decide if this album cover is funnier or Baby Snakes description of it is. I can't even look at it without laughing.
Are they fighting a Neanderthal war or making music.

When one song is called "Sign Of The Hammer" is just confuzzles the issue.

Definitely my least favorite of all Metallica's albums. "Sandman" and "Sad But True" are pretty good but the rest just bores me. I did like "Load" and "St Anger" though. But "Justice" is the finest IMO.

Yes, the music sucks as much as the piss-poor artwork.

Sad, but true. :wink:

Seriously though, some very nice guitar tones on that album. It's not a masterpiece or anything, just a good solid hard rock album.
