I think I have found an album cover that's so bad that it must be made into a meme if it hasn't made itself a meme already:

I can't decide if this is the worst cover ever, or if it's the best cover ever made simply for its extreme cheese.

I found one, but it's an old and long neglected thread, filed in the wrong place. I've moved it and you can feel free to either resurrect it or just restart fresh (and if you don't I may just do it myself).

Is there a thread for good album covers or only bad ones? I looked but couldn't find anything.

What are you talking about? Looks great, total 80s wtf but also very well drawn, as opposed to many classics which look like they've been drawn by a 6 year old with parkinsons.

Well a band I was in in the 80's released this album and the cover has got to be one of the worst ever!

In all fairness, it's probably to be understood in the context of some aspect of Japanese culture that we, or at least I, don't understand.
That doesn't excuse it from being one of the worst covers ever.

From what I've read, I think it actually was. For whatever reason Maiden wanted the unfinished version.
