The Greatest Collection of Album Covers Ever?

A few weeks ago, I blogged about a creative Facebook meme that quickly took the internet by storm for forty-eight beautiful hours before flaming out in typical cyber fad fashion. I’m talking, of course, about the create-your-own-album-cover craze which had users combining random quotes, Wikipedia entries, and Flickr pics into one wonderful mashup of potential Indie band art. The results were often hilarious, and even though making the images took a little bit of effort, it was always worth it. Anyway, I told people to send in their best pics, and now I’m happy to present all the submissions as well as a few from the Internet that I found amusing.
Pics after the jump…

I can’t imagine what this album sounds like. Probably experimental tablas, or crap like that.

I imagine this album was probably recorded by Enya’s session musicians.

Technically, this one doesn’t count as “injew” is not a Wikipedia entry but is in fact the name of the band that IndianJones, Jash, and I started in Rock Band 2

So now the $64,000 question: which one of these CDs would you buy (or illegally download)?

  1. I am just so thrilled that you included mine. That was my favorite one of mine, so I’m glad you liked it too! Now I’m just waiting for the residuals to flow in.
    I love the one with the guy passed out in the bathroom and bloody tampons strewn all over. Classic, I mean, classy.

  2. I’d buy Born and Raised… only because I have that giant coffee cup in my kitchen…
