While going through some of my old albums (vinyl record type) a few days ago (I was actually looking for an old Hollywood Fats album at the time) I ran across some Molly Hatchet albums and thought to myself, you know, it sure is hard to beat this kind of artwork and along with the Pure Prairie League album art I recalled that I always considered it to be some of the best and found myself wondering what some of your favorites might be.

lassic rock is a radio format which developed from the album-oriented rock (AOR) format in the early 1980s. In the United States, the classic rock format features music ranging generally from the late 1960s to the late 1980s, primarily focusing on the hard rock genre that peaked in popularity in the 1970s.Classic rock stations re-create, in part, the sound of album-oriented rock stations of the 1970s and 1980s (although usually with a much more limited playlist)[citation needed] and appeal mainly to adults rather than teenagers. Despite this, many classic rock acts consistently attract new generations of fans. Some classic rock stations also play a limited number of current releases which are stylistically consistent with the station's sound, or from established classic rock artists who still produce new albums.

What? I don't understand. Seems entirely unrelated.

I mentioned the Molly Hatchet and Pure Prairie League covers and one of the things that I recall about them is that they were...like a series I guess. Anticipation for the next one ran pretty high. There were other similar ones as well which, offhand, I can't remember.

That's an account that was created exclusively to advertise. An advertising account will often post things like that that are just barely relevant (in this case, that paragraph is copied from the "Classic Rock" wikipedia page) in what I assume is an attempt to make it not stand out as an advertising account. We ban such accounts, and that one has been taken care of already.

Step 1: Buy a Gibson SG
Step 2: Insert Green Ringer, EQ, 3 dead squirrels and a microwave into said SG
Step 3: Plug in and freak the **** out.

Some other album artwork that is pretty awesome is the art for Meat Loaf's albums.

This is one of the reasons I don't buy downloads. Album artwork can be awesome. I use CDs now, but before the internet was around I used to love going round all the local record shops & choosing albums based solely on the artwork.

I guess it's a bit predictable, but Iron Maiden were always a favourite - espeically the Somewhere In Time album, I spent ages examining it & finding all the references to all their different songs on there.

Also, +1 to the Meatloaf comment, although a few of them were a bit shit (pretty much just his large face taking up the whole cover!). The ones with 'actual' artwork were cool though.

Roger Dean is one of my favorite artists in general. Got famous doing album covers for YES. Uriah Heep, too.
Listen. I'm sorry.

"Wish You Were Here" From Pink Floyd is definitely one of my favorites. Mastodon is a current band that has amazing artwork, particularly "Crack The Skye" and "Blood Mountain".

Rock N' Roll isn't just a genre of music. It's a way of life. If you fall; get the hell up, brush off, and keep rockin!

Don't forget Asia's album art. That was pretty cool. Also Boston's Boston was cool with the guitars that look like spaceships.

True enough... Welcome to the UG Machine cjog210...

My favorite's always been Black Sabbath's first album. I'd love to visit the place where that picture was taken sometime. It's funny cause Paranoid is my all-time favorite album, but I actually think it has one of the worst album covers.
#20
I will never understand what that is on the Paranoid album...

Lol, it's supposed to be a little man with a sword and shield. The band has said he's supposed to be a war pig, but there's just no justifying it. He looks like a homeless dude on some VERY powerful drugs.
#22
Haha, never really understood what it was but, one day I looked at it and it just hit me, it's a guy in a helmet, wielding a sword and shield.
#26
still looks like a hobo with a perfectly good sword... actually, the hobo seems to be high... or possibly turning into a werewolf.
