Friday Fun: Worst Metal Album Covers?
Album covers used to be the first thing a music fan could see when they walked into a shop.

It's a great way to make a first impression, and anyone who still trawls through record stores knows that sometimes a good cover is enough to convince you an album is good. It often works, too.

But some musicians have a bad instinct for visual art, and it can translate to some truly awful album covers.

On top of that, as the years go by and technology improves, old record covers can look even worse than they did in the first place.

Metal has several victims for bad album covers, and we've been digging through the archives to find some of the worst ever.

All we can say is this: please give our sanity back. Please!
