SEE? IT’S A PLAY ON THE WORD “COVERS!”
While we’ve been slowly unveiling a list of “Ten Great Bands that Inadvertently Ruined Metal,” Roadrunner has been counting down a little list of their own: the “Ten Greatest Album Covers” in the label’s history. As is the always the case with these silly lists, some of the choices seem dubious/random – apparently photographing lesbians and tinting that photo green is the greatest possible artistic statement a cover designer could possibly make. Still, that doesn’t mean it’s not still kinda fun to argue over.
But the best part might actually be that the list put it into the head of that wild and crazy guy, Bram Teitelman, to do his own list of “RoadRunner’s Five Worst Covers of All Time” for Metal Insider – in this case, “cover” being a cover song, not an album cover. I don’t wanna give too much away because Bram’s writing is always jaunty and entertaining, but I will say this:
Awful. Simply awful.
