Creepy album covers

Posted November 12th, 2008 by Eric Greenwood · No Comments

As with any pointless list, this list of the 15 creepiest album covers over at Odee has its share of hits and misses. Anything current like Butthole Surfers or Lords of Acid just seems forced and lame. Ooh, a cartoon pencil jammed in an ear.  Shocking. But some true gold awaits in a few shining examples:

I can’t even begin to imagine what is happening here. Two gay S&M dudes are holding up a cracklady who’s about to slip into a coma. I want to hear that lady choke through "Signed Sealed Delivered."

Kevin Rowland was the lead singer of Dexy’s Midnight Runners, whose only hit "Come on Eileen" evidently made Rowland enough money so that he could pursue a career as a fugly cross dresser.

For some reason the only word that comes to mind is rapist.
