The Worst Album Covers Ever, From Boring to WTF

Creative control can be a beautiful thing, but the quality of a record’s artwork can be the difference between a customer buying an LP or averting their eyes from its vulgar sheath.

While we appreciate avant-garde acts like Lady Gaga, Sia, and Grimes for their experimental offerings to music, even we can admit they’ve had some baffling album designs. Symbolism aside, there’s an entire archive of inexplicable album covers out there that require some serious ‘splainin’.

From cheap to gross to “OMG, WTF is that?!” the covers featured in the gallery above are some of the worst in the history of music. (Don’t worry, we still love ’em.)

Scroll through the photos above to see all the cover art that left our heads spinning.
