The worst album cover ever? 10 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 0  
Four naked Welshmen exposing themselves to a young boy in a sauna........surely MAN's "Revelation" is the worst album cover of all time?

And look at the daft expressions on their faces- not the slightest trace of irony or humour! One can only wonder why they never made the big time.

Not exactly a valid "mini-lp" topic I know, but I'd be genuinely interested if anyone knows of a more rdiculous album cover. And no, "Smell The Glove" doesn't count.

All the best,

Stu

On a similiar child abuse theme, the Scorpions "Virgin Killer" is quite a famous one. A naked 10 year old girl in a very clearly sexual pose, even with quite a sultry look on her face, with only a crack in glass covering her. Unsurprisingly, it was quickly replaced. It's amazing to me that it was even released in the first place.

Good call about The Scorpions "Virgin Killer"- a cover so bad it doesn't even attempt to walk the fine line between clever and stupid. Another favourite of mine is Black Sabbath's "Paranoid"- clearly they'd spent all the artwork budget on drugs and booze and so had to realize their conception of a Demon Warrior From Hell by dressing up one of their roadies in his underpants and a motorbike helmet. Lucky they still had enough cash to pick up a plastic sword and shield from Woolworth's toy department, or I bet the poor fella would've felt a right prat.

Any other nominations?

I agree with Stu about the Paranoid low budget cover ! I would like to suggest Tony Williams 'Million Dollar legs' cover where this famous jazz drummer looks so ridiculus. Another suggestion, the self titled Suzi Quatro where you can see her beside a disgusting dirty guy emtying his beer bottle ! This Suzi Quatro mini lp is not japanese but very well made BTW...

I checked your nominee Man's Revelation...WHAT A LAUGH ! Good find !

Let me propose you in a still 'sexually oriented' and powerfully ridicoulus manner : Dennis Coffey 'Finger licking good'. Please check this out ! I hope it wont be released in mini lp ....

Die Cut Covers :

Die cutting of the cover image or inserts is probably the most common technique employed to create gimmick covers. It's probably also in most cases the cheapest.

There are thousands of die cut covers. Here are a few of the more popular and best known releases.
