I think Scorpions is the winner, almost all of their covers are crappy. Twisted sister is a good candidate too (dance) i love both bands but really their covers are ugly.

And what do u think of this one ? (music inside is also crappy imo)

Oh my God, Malinku, that is indeed one of the worst covers of all time...

And Alcohollelujah : I do hope the music of This band is way better than their covers.
Ok, a band is allowed to make one lousy cover but these guys... Wohow....
They bring crap into another dimension...

Told ya! ;) Actually, the music isn't much of a feast for your senses either....

I think the cover Malinku uploaded is not that bad, well... it is!!! BUT it would look much better if it wouldn't be composed of such extreme tones of yellow and blue. If it was just the camo look with the rest added in some washed out, blurry black (like an old rubber stamp), it would probably not annoy anyone. Amazing, hhow much difference a few details can make.... Still, I wonder how this has passed any kind of quality control the way it is....

Also, as mentioned before, closely all Riot's album covers are hideous..

Well, it depends.....

If the first one is a parody of the Motörhead-"Head", it is actually pretty funny imho! Otherwise it'd make me wonder, what the artist was on when he came up with that.

The Pantera cover is priceless indeed. What kinda creature is that supposed to be???? And why????

I actually like the old school feel of the Rat Attack cover, that one's pretty cool! :)

Not exactly Metal, but worth a look:

Now they look like one big jolly bunch of people busy thinking of good deeds to do:

Here's another Pantera one that's just hilarious if you compare it to the way they looked in the mid-late 90's.

This one isn't even crappy, it's just so ridiculous and distateful that I had to post it.

Looks like a bad cookout.

I had that Attila tape for the longest time. It is so odd. Not as terrible as one might think but very odd.

As horrible as some of the covers on this thread have been, they don't top this one.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a "winner".

http://img835.imageshack.us/img835/8404/messendgerbackcover.jpg

Mullets, dodgy facial hair, questionable "quotation" marks, shirtless homo-erotic overtones and those blank/stoned (?) expressions.
What on earth possessed them?
