The Worst Album Cover Of The Year Contest Finds Love (And Lunch) Among The Pine Trees

Nov 28th, 2007 // 11 Comments


Yesterday, when we put out the call for entries in our Worst Album Cover Of The Year tournament, we referenced Ted Nugent’s special-edition cover for Love Grenade, calling its theme “Ladies: They’re What’s For Dinner.” Well, thanks to David Menconi, we now have a first-round opponent for the Nuge: the Chapel Hill, N.C., songwriter whose album Sharp Teeth doubles as a visual tribute to the post-coital joys of eating half-digested food. Or bloodied rope. I can’t really tell.

    When you can actually defend Love Grenade against another album cover with the phrase “it’s only implied sexualized cannibalism”, you know you’ve got a frontrunner.

    Wow. That looks very much like the work of Stephen Tunney, aka Dogbowl, the genius behind some of the early King Missile records.

    On behalf of my former temporary hometown, I apologize for this cover.

    Ha. I kinda like this cover in contrast to the music on that record.

    Also: I like that homegirl hasn’t shaved her legs in a few days.

    It might look romantic, but I’m pretty sure that eating your lover’s raw intestines can give you the e coli.

    Personally, I love this album cover. In case you didn’t know, it’s a painting done by Beth Tacular from the band Bowerbirds. Her art is pretty excellent.

    Obviously this is meant to be a lesson to all the ladies. See what happens when you don’t keep those legs smooth? I’m, uh, gonna go grab my Venus…

    I just noticed there’s a really, really, really ridiculously bad cover for the new Mudvayne album/compilation thing. Here’s the Amazon link: []
