I had to bring this thread back from the dead for this one. Thanks, doglips, for recommending Grinderman. Great music, and the best album cover of the last few years!

I like the "Parental Advisory" on Cannibal Corpse. Did we really need that, considering the cover?

And here's another that either makes me laugh or go WTF?

Rusty Miller-"Sexplosion"

For those of you who don't know, she was a racy comedianne from the '60s that was banned from plenty of Vegas showrooms for being too offensive.

Not only is it a good cover, but it's also a good record. The liner notes state that the Louvin Bros. actually constructed the set for the photo shoot themselves. Satan is a cardboard cutout, and the flaming stuff is actually a bunch of garbage and tires(!) that they lit aflame.

Thanks minstrel

I had a blast looking through the old posts in this thread as well. It's a shame that so many links are broken. I'm actually thinking about looking for the album covers that I can find on Google and fixing some of those.
