An album's artwork represents a first impression for many fans and it creates an aesthetic vibe about its music. In the days before the Internet, bands had to rely on their covers to capture the attention of any potential fans. And a lot of people discovered their favorite bands just by picking up an album because it sounded cool. Unfortunately not all bands or singers were able to pull off a good album cover. In this photo collection, you can see some of the worst album covers of all time. Everything from rock and metal bands to country, gospel comedy, and jazz by artists from around the world are here in their everlasting glory.
