I’m bored so I’m going to share some of my favourite album covers of rock and metal.
Pantera - Vulgar Display of Power because it’s an amazing cover and it symbolises what I would like to do to a lot of people… #pantera #bestalbumcovers


I’m about to suffocate you with a bunch of best/worst lists on all my favourite things of 2013. Yes, I’m 2 months late, but keep reading…

We gunna start with album covers. Here’s my mix-tape of the most awesome and the most ugly pieces of shit most of us ignore, unless, of course, you’re a total cool record-store-going-caveman-hipster snob.


10. Paracosm, Washed Out - The flowery pattern is very wallpapery, which sounds terrible in theory, but this is actually quite nice. Plaster me up.

9. Capital Cities, In a Tidal Wave of Mystery - Trying to decipher what’s going on here. Still don’t know, but don’t care. I LOVE HUE ON DRUGS.

8. Lady Gaga, Artpop - She’s pretty annoying but this is actually pretty good. It’s like she’s carved out of marble, embodying Venus and ready to give birth to a bunch of alien babies. 

7. Shout Out Louds, Optica - This is an exercise in legibility like going to the eye doctor, except this time I can actually read it without feeling awful about myself.

6. One Republic, Native - Taxidermies drank the cool juice and formed this mountain mirage thing. It’s awesome.

5. Kanye West, YeezusI don’t want to like this because Kanye West gets top grade in the category of really annoying, still, it’s cool. I bet it cost really expensive to look this cheap.

4. Deafheaven, Sunbather - The music is angry and loud, and the cover dissects letters in half, but it’s like the letters are melting away or sinking which is rad.

3. 2 Chainz, B.O.A.T.S. II ME TIME - 100% see-say, but who cares, yo. Macro wins.

2. Best Coast, Fade Away - This is, like, the best Instagram filter ever. 

1. Justin Timberlake, The 20/20 Experience Part 1 - My homeboy JT came out with new music he describes as ‘music you can see’. Ugh, yeah, okay. But I guess his cover portrays just that, so yeah, AWESOME!


10. Miley Cyrus, Bangerz - This isn’t good. It’s all Miami Vice and shit, and that’s not Hannah Montana or whatever horny version of Hannah Montana she is now.

9. Robin Thicke, Blurred Lines - The look on his face is almost as bad as whatever the hell is going on behind him. 

8. Limpbizkit, Ready to Go - Limpbizkit is still around? GAH! 

7. Katy Perry, Prism - I get the whole refracting of light thing, but this is bad. Then, they added those flowers and a border. Also, her face. Also, is she holding cellophane? 

6. CSS, Planta - Alien heads, don’t get it. Am I supposed to? 

5. The Wanted, Word of Mouth - Word of mouth, with words on that mouth. Nope.

4. Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Mosquito - Look, it’s Seed of Chucky getting bit by a spider mosquito and it’s hurting my eyes.

3. Dannii Minoque, This Is It: The Very Best of - Kaleidoscopic disaster.

2. Jellow Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine, White People and the Damage Done - What the fuck is going on here? They gave the baby horns, Julia Robert’s mouth and a third eye. WHY?

1. Sasha Go Hard, Nutty World - Wow, that’s a beautiful cover with great photoshop, said no one with eyes ever.

Them Crooked Vultures - Them Crooked Vultures
When members of Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters/Nirvana and Queens of the Stone Age/Kyuss come together, you know it’s going to be good. The cover for this album is awesome as well, featuring everyone’s favourite flying killing machine, the vulture… This isn’t really metal but I don’t care. If you like any of the aforementioned bands you should definitely check this supergroup out!
