Please, no more awful album covers

I want to start my own crusade. A crusade against the incredible amount of awful music artwork we have nowadays in indie music. Please stop making these horrible covers!! There's people that still buy records and we love to have wonderful covers for our albums. They are important, and they serve the purpose of illustrating the contents, the atmosphere or the tone of a record. Otherwise what it shows is disdain or just a serious problem of bad taste. Please lets fight together to end with the bad, disgusting album sleeves!


Empire of the Sun: Walking on a Dream
Let's mix kitsch aesthetics with Star Wars saga. Bad idea, worst results

Coco Rosie: Grey Oceans
Easily, one of the ugliest covers in indie music history

Red Hot Chili Peppers: Stadium Arcadium
The amazingness of Word-Art? None

The Strokes: Angles
All the tackiness of the 80's gathered on a painful sleeve

The Ting Tings: We Started Nothing
Couldn't agree more with the album title. Little work on the cover, indeed

Weezer: Hurley
Funny joke from Weezer? No, just a horrible cover

Santogold: Santogold
Do I really need to say this is a disgusting cover?

Neil Young: Fork in the Road
Neil, if you weren't in the mood for a picture, at least you could have done something better with the fonts...
