Worst Album Covers....Evah!

The Today Show did a little piece about the worst album covers ever this morning. So I Googled it to see if there's agreement on the subject. Go take a look yourself.

The answer is that...yes, there's much agreement. The front runners seem to be religious albums from the 70's and disco albums with gay single entendres. There's also a bunch of them that are just plain weird.

Which are your favorites? I'm particularly fond of Joyce, Let me touch him, and The Handless Organist.

BTW, I want to take this opportunity to apologize for yesterday's Non-Thought-Provoking Entry. It was the best I had. As an unrepentant comment whore, I clearly didn't live up to your standards or mine. I hereby vow not to mention Jersey Joe again until he does something unimaginably stupid. Actually, I've got faith in him.

Actually, you should apologize for making me look at those.

My Retinas!

Chris said...

HA! I love the Orleans cover. Doesn't get much gayer than that! And what is Julie doing with that old guy at a bar on her sixteenth birthday?

Jim Wright said...

Personally, I vote for...

Jim Wright said...

'Devastating Dave'

Jim Wright said...

for both gayest (while thinking that he's not)...

Jim Wright said...

...and worst outfit.

Jim Wright said...

This is a common Stumble hit,

Jim Wright said...

and I always find it pretty dammed funny...

Jim Wright said...

- in a stomach churning sort of way.

Jim Wright said...

You're welcome

vince said...

Some of those covers were jut scary! I'd forgotten how bad some of the Scopions album covers were. And some of the people on the covers - erp, gag...

Nathan said...

Jim,

It's totally not fair of you to make it embarrassing to check my own blog in public.

Everyone's looking at the guy in the corner booth laughing out loud by himself.

Michelle K said...

Nathan,

People *always* look at me funny for laughing in public.

Just enjoy the fact that you're amused and they're not.

Gloat, even.

Michelle K said...

And it could be worse. He could have taken over your site and posted some of those covers on your front page.

Now THAT would be embarrassing to check in public.

Jim Wright said...

Nathan,

Jim Wright said...

People in the movie industry are known

Jim Wright said...

for acting strangely in public

Jim Wright said...

I'm just helping to add to your persona.

Jim Wright said...

Try not to jump up and down on any couches and you'll be ok.

Jim Wright said...

:)

Michelle K said...

If he jumps up and down on any couches, we need to hold an intervention.

Jim Wright said...

I don't care how goofy he acts in public, it's the jumping on the couch that bothers me. I hope he at least take his shoes off first - I've seen NY streets, I don't want to sit in that crap, I've got my good work pants on.

kimby said...

Not having ever been to New York...isn't it common knowledge that they mostly ALL behave strangely?

kimby said...

Not saying that YOU are strange Nathan (just wanted that to be understood)

kimby said...

Just saying that if you happen to behave strangely, that no one would really notice.

kimby said...

I have fulfilled my comment obligation for this post...(thanks Jim for setting a fine example)
I just want to keep Nathan happy.

How's the kitties?

Jim Wright said...

Actually, Kimby, the proper way to ask that question would be:

Jim Wright said...

How's the kitten, and

Jim Wright said...

the other kitten?

Jim Wright said...

You know, for maximum comment whore effect.

Jim Wright said...

Just sayin'

kimby said...

Michelle K said...

Jim,

Michelle K said...

Don't you have some wood

Michelle K said...

to turn

Michelle K said...

or snow

Michelle K said...

to shovel?

Michelle K said...

Although I must admit

Michelle K said...

this is rather addictive

Michelle K said...

kinda like a nonsensical poem.

Jim Wright said...

It's

Jim Wright said...

the

Jim Wright said...

wood

Jim Wright said...

thing,

Jim Wright said...

no snow

Jim Wright said...

here. Just

Jim Wright said...

cut a burl

Jim Wright said...

and mounted it on the lathe

Jim Wright said...

got a cup of

Jim Wright said...

coffee

Jim Wright said...

and now I'm off to make

Jim Wright said...

wood chips

Nathan said...

Thank You Monsters.

Oh, and the kittens are going batshit right now and I think Widget may finally move around enough to lose some weight.

She still isn't technically playing with them, but they are chasing each other around.

kimby said...

Nathan, today in honour of your new kitties, I posted an intro to my own Lord Kitty..
I do believe it is Michelle's turn to post her kitties too!

Jeff Hentosz said...

If you scroll real fast through the middle there, you get the illusion of a really boring animation of the Future Ultimate Emperor of the Universe (tm) morphing into a shark. Pretty cool.

Michelle K said...

Friday Cat Blogging on my site is now posted.

Nathan said...

Jeff,

It's not a shark. Can you say TurDuckEn?

Michelle K said...

It is TOO a shark!

We took that picture a the Newport Aquarium in Newport KY.
