Worst Album Covers of 2016

3416384931-copy

2016 was a pretty horrific year, and as a result, coming up with a fun little list of bad album covers was a little bit more difficult this year. Let’s be honest, this collection of horrible covers pales in comparison to the shit show Donald Trump has lined up to be in his cabinet. If anything, let this list be the pick me up you need as we say goodbye to a year of unending tragedies and disappointments.

  1. You have immaculate taste … maybe the Trumpster will make you his new Secretary of State for the Arts?

  5. Most of these might not have been as bad (although bad nonetheless) if they’d been released in the 80s. Prince Rama… not quite the symbolism master. Yet, my no.1 vote goes to Lumpy and the Dumpsters. That’s one useless cover.
