Weird and Oblivious Old Album Covers

Who knew that one of the major pitfalls of making a faith album in the 60s, 70s, and 80s was that the language and art would age into being a creepy, un-self-aware album cover? It's stilted, awkward, and there is an uncomfortable amount of talk regarding "being touched by him." Maybe the hair doesn't help.

Un-Self-Aware and Freaky Old Album Covers

You can't blame an artist for putting their heart and soul out there and doing their best. But you can totally laugh at weird and awkward album covers that use extremely tacky imagery or have become a straight up double entendre over time. There's no way of knowing if your band name is gonna become a synonym for a sex act, but hey, it happens.

Weird and Creepy Album Covers of The Past

Since music is a primarily auditory experience, many artists don't seem to be too skilled when it comes to developing their image. Low budgets, awkward photoshoots and the swift and crushing passage of time have left many artists of the past in a whirling eddy of unrelatable creepiness that in retrospect, is fun to gawk at. In a similar vein of weird stuff people made, here are strange how-to books.

Creepy, strange, funny and weird vintage album covers.

An ad campaign for secondhand music store Vinyl Exchange assembled patchwork bodies, Frankenstein-style, out of the detached body parts so often portrayed on album covers.

A week ago, Reddit reposted the album randomizer game that we reposted from 4chan (reposts are the Internet's way of showing it cares). The folks over in that corner of the web made a few good ones of their own.

And to those of you on FAIL Blog who made excellent album covers of your own and are currently sitting there wondering "Hey! Where the hell are MINE?" Shhhh. It's fine. Don't drink so much coffee. We'll feature those in an upcoming post (and now's the time to make your own if you haven't already).

And the fourth album could be called "That One," the fifth one could be "All of Them ..." The possibilities are endless!

There's not much creativity involved in self-titling your album, but doing it not once, but three more times? That's just lazy.
