    29 Album Covers That Should Never Have Happened

    They don't make them like this anymore. All these via the excellent Twitter account Bad Album Covers. A few of these are kinda NSFW.

    1. The B-side to this is Give Your Flesh To Me.

    For those who missed this this morning. Barbara Markay.

    2. This knob-based bluegrass band's second album.

    The much anticipated Knob Lick Upper 10,000's second album.

    3. This man who may be about to attack you from the bushes.

    4. Erotic terrorism. Sounds funky.

    6. We can't see this being a hit to be honest.

    7. It is unbelieveable (NSFW warning).

    8. One of Miss Piggy's lesser-known works.

    Hey @rickygervais forget the car ads. You and Miss Piggy should do one of these.

    10. Mullets this good haven't been seen before or since.

    11. Maybe this guy had the same barber.

    12. Maybe something is lost in translation here.

    15. There are no words (slightly NSFW due to fat naked man).

    @BadAlbumCovers you've probably seen this but it is a classic.

    16. This album cover predates science.

    22. Knitwear status: epic.

    23. "There was one mullet to rule them all, forged deep in the fires of 1981, that could only be destroyed with scissors."

    He might be "one of the world's finest boogie-woogie music masters" (wiki) but there's no excuse for that hair.
