Badly Drawn MS Paint Versions of Famous Metal Album Covers


Van Halen 1984 MS PaintThis isn’t the first time we’ve encountered badly and hilariously drawn MS Paint version of famous album covers, but that doesn’t make it any less fun: Metal Injection just tipped us off to the existence of the Facebook page Minimalist Awful Album Art on MS Paint and Also Avant Garde Haikus, which is exactly what it sounds like. And it is glorious.

What’s remarkable is how accurately these capture the essence of the originals without being insulting about it; that these “badly drawn” versions are still so recognizable is a testament to how iconic the originals are. Some of our favorites are posted below; view the whole set here, which includes a lot more than just metal.
