Album artwork can either leave you really excited about new music or really confused. In these cases, we’re more than confused, and yet we can’t look away. Here are some of the weirdest album covers of all time.
The Miracle – Queen
If this doesn’t weird you out right away, just look at the eyes…
Yesterday and Today – The Beatles
Although this doesn’t seem real, we can assure you that it is. Luckily, The Beatles found an alternative cover for this album.
Live It Up – Crosby Stills & Nash
We don’t know what this means, but suddenly we’re hungry?
McCartney – Paul McCartney
Okay, so maybe this is the back of the album cover, but is that a baby in his coat?
Circus In Town – Merle Evans
Thank you for the nightmares, Merle.
Diamond Dogs – David Bowie
No “weird album art collection” is complete without David Bowie. And unfortunately, you need to see the front and back of this cover to get the full effect.
Thirty Seconds Over Winterland – Jefferson Airplane
Toasters. With wings. And clocks?
It’s Me, Mum! – Wally Whyton
We wonder if she’s proud.
Witness – Katy Perry
Here’s a fun “Would You Rather”: Would you rather have an eye in your mouth or two mouths on your eyes?
Mellow Gold – Beck
We’re not sure what we’re supposed to be looking at here.
Hello Nasty – Beastie Boys
Life In A Tin Can – The Bee Gees
Well, we suppose they took it the album name quite literally.
Mystery To Me – Fleetwood Mac
If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring two things…
Love This Giant – David Byrne & St. Vincent
You may have guessed it, but these two do not look like this. We’re not sure what it means, but suddenly we’re clenching our jaws?
Trout Mask Replica – Captain Beefheart
It’s not a matter or why he has a trout mask. It’s a matter of should he have a trout face. We think not.
Goin’ Back To Miami – Wayne Cochran
We’d give anything for that kind of volume.
Born This Way – Lady Gaga
She’s certainly a glamorous transformer.
We can imagine your face is probably scrunched up in a mess of confusion by now. But as crazy as many of these album covers are, we’re still thankful for the music! Which cover did you think was the weirdest?
