I know there are people who have seen some BAD album covers from GREAT bands. Whine about them here, and if you'd like, post a link to a pic, tha'd be great.

As much as I love these two bands...the following album covers are lame!

Destruction's - Release From Agony

Manowar's Into Glory Ride even made the top 100 of all time, any genre.

Oh! As Oz pointed out in another thread, the original cover for "Killing Is My Business..." is flat out hideous!

I always felt the cover for "The Force" by Onslaught was really crap, especially since the album itself is so good. The cover makes it look really ameteur. "The X Factor" by Iron Maiden also has a pretty naff cover.

In the WTF, section, "Impeckable" by Budgie. The album itself is a great slice of 70s heavy metal but the cover itself is very strange for a rock album. For anyone who hasn't seen it. It's just a drawing of a cat looking at a parrot.
