The one guy with the PINK KNEEPADS is ready! smile.gif So humiliating. I found a blog where a guy had a collection of these and I just had to share a few.

P.S. Ben is spot on as far as Scorpions covers smile.gif I should share a few of those next!

Oh dear. Oh dear , oh dear, oh dear.. It's not so much a representation of the awesome power of ROCK, is it?
More like an advert for a late night Chatline service.

That 'Orleans' record had a top 5 Billboard hit on it - Still The One, 1977.
And it still gets played on oldies radio.

Some if these are hilarious but most are actually disturbing. But these are (mostly) unknown artists so the design doesn't surprise me.

How about really famous bands and their worst album covers?

Two of the bands above, Orleans and Manowar, were both really famous over here and had 'hits'.

This is one of my favorites to bring up ...

Attached Image

1) It's on Capitol
2) these brothers made probably 30 records between the late 40s and the mid 60s
3) They were covered a lot by later rock and country artists
4) highly influential, especially for their close vocal harmonies
5) designed and built that actual set themselves - yes it's really burning!
6) made it into the top 20 country charts many times (one or two #1s)
7) they won a grammy (though not for this 'Satan' record)
8) Ira Louvin (Loudermilk) was famous for his drunkenness and womanizing

To be honest, Motley Crue can be included on the list:



The 80s were definitely a weird time - lots of great music appeared then, but in the same lots of bad music and weird examples of looks...
