After seeing the new Jimmy Eat World album artwork and thinking it was pretty bad, I began to wonder what other artists have come out with albums with terrible artwork that turned out to be pretty good. Here's a few that come to my mind. Any others?

I went to the links but none of your pictures showed up. I don't think any of those are that bad and I actually really like MDL's artwork.

I got into MCS because I liked the artwork for MDL so I checked it out, far from bad. Battle Studies isn't bad either.



There's a bad album cover.

Ugh, that blink cover. I don't even hate the dog or the tattoo font. It's that fucking dogs eating dogs stencil in the corner. Legit looks like it was designed by a 6 year old on computer class.

Yes, that is the worst part! The tattoo font, the dog, the white background, the red blood on its teeth - they all look like a rough sketch. Like this design was a 1st draft that they decided to leave it like that. Even worst, they released this poster right afterwards:



Which IMO would have been a MUCH better cover art for the EP.

I've never seen this poster, looks pretty rad.

Good answer. That's maybe my favorite album, but that cover sucks.
