Why Not a Gay Night at Safeco ... »

Flipping through the Florida Sun-Sentinal’s Worst Album Art of All Time gallery, I thought I’d found the best-worst one every few clicks.
Until I came to #36 and knew I needn’t look any further.
Almost as creepy as the pictures of Warren Jeffs slipping his 12 year old bride the tongue.
Handless organist for the win. That or #21, love the song titles.
One of my personal faves was the Brailettes! How awesome.
I don't know. #38 is pretty creepy. It features a song entitled "He Touched Me," followed by "Get All Excited."
I agree. #38 was creepier than this one. While #45, titled "All My Friends are Dead" with the picture of a very solemn dude kneeling at a headstone, made me laugh out loud.
#21. that level of awesome is impossible to top.
Love that Les Baxter one, though. I want to be at that party.
Can we all agree that Seventies fashions were horrible?
The Electric Amish (#34) cover is actually crazy brilliant, IMHO. It looks like a mash-up of A Hard Day's Night (I know, duh!) and The Notorious Byrd Brothers, the latter a truly great 1960s artifact. I'm going now to Google "Electric Amish" to see how much more great meta-music they made back in the day.
Or was that "Yesterday"? Yuk yuk yuk!
A few more
Wait. Why is Julie in a bar with a perv on her 16th birthday? She really wants to smoke that abandoned cig, though.
Hilarious. Thanks for making me laugh until tears ran down the sides of my face. =)
I'm glad they gave you an activity poster and lyrics sheet with Slim Goodbody's album (26). It probably explains why his anus is where his penis should be.
Julie looks like one hard-ridden 16 yr old.
#5--you are correct. "All My Friends are Dead" for the win. Although #47, Mike Terry all fish-belly white in that sequined muu-muu is reaaaaaally close.
I've seen almost all these covers before in a Taschen book, maybe "1000 Album Covers" or one of it's sequels/
I really love some of the album titles: "Can I Borrow A Feeling", "My Turtle's Dead!", "King Of All The Taverns", "Skid Row Joe", "Understand Your Swede" and "Thank You For The Dove".
I laughed at that site for hours when I first saw it, but alas, it's rumored to be about half PhotoShop'd fakes.
I remember someone who owns this
No Photoshop there. They're real, and they ain't the half of it. You can find stuff like this in obscure towns with hard-core Christian heritage -- try Lynden, WA (where I think it's still illegal to dance).
That Les Baxter record is great.
I have a couple of these. The Muhammad Ali vs. Mr. Tooth Decay is a masterpiece.
@18&19 You HAVE some of these albums?! You are my new personal hero. Also for confirming Santa Claus isn't dead by confirming they're real and not photo shopped. They still would've made me laugh photo shopped, but the true magic in the universe revealed by these REAL covers is something ridiculously special. LOL
"So you see Julie, since I only put it in your pooper, it's not really sex and you're still a virgin. Happy birthday sweetie."
The Ali one turns up all the time, and for some odd reason it's always in mint condition. It's almost like no one ever plays it twice.
31 is exactly the mental picture that I conjure whenever I hear the name "Joyce".
And more! With reviews of the music on the albums.
Love #40... Hunky Swede returns home to with bottle of Aquavit (in bag) brandishing suggestive woodsman tool.
Why isn't this cross-posted on Line Out?
