In addition to “wuss,” “coffee magnate,” “text-message-ignorer,” and “possible third-place finisher in our Worst Album Cover Of The Year tournament,” Dave Mustaine can now put “petri dish for disease” on his resume: “Mustaine says he went to see a health practitioner who did an analysis of his body.

So many voters seemed morose over the loss of both Helalyn Flowers (who knew an obscure industrial-goth band would become such a part of all of our lives?) and Dave Mustaine and crew (who have always been a part of all our lives) that we thought we’d give you a belated Christmas present: The chance to choose who will take home the coveted bronze in our Worst Album Cover Of The Year Tournament. Will the choice between the rivetheads and the Rattlehead prove to be one of the hardest? All signs point to yes.
Our Worst Album Cover Of The Year Tournament is counting down to its inevitable close, but those of you who actually had off on Monday may have missed your chance to vote in our semifinals. More »
So! Today begins the semifinal round in our Worst Album Cover Of The Year Tournament (voting lasts until 11:59 p.m. ET Wednesday, and the finals begin Thursday). Ted Nugent’s special-edition Love Grenade cover has been the favorite since way before our bracket was even constructed, but remember: Nugent’s opponents, Megadeth, were the ones who knocked out the other Love Grenade cover. And the United Abominations cover does have the advantage of kinda living up to the name of the album it’s representing. Vote after the jump!
Our Worst Album Cover Of The Year Tournament’s quarterfinals begin with the last battle in our We Aren’t The World Bracket. In one corner, you have Megadeth’s Photoshopped-out-the-wazoo debutante ball for their new-look Vic Rattlehead; in the other, you have PJ Olsson’s crying, nose-picking, 9/11-remembering cherub. Given the hilarious comments that both these covers have inspired in the past, this may be our toughest race of all four of our quarterfinal matchups! Vote after the jump.
Round two of our Worst Album Cover Of The Year Tournament opens with two formidable contenders: Ted Nugent’s regular Love Grenade cover and Megadeth’s cover for United Abominations, which, according to one of our commenters, doubles as the debutante ball for the new-look Vic Rattlehead. Who apparently was formed from a lot of anti-UN anger and even more lens flare. Voting is after the jump, although why do I have the feeling that, were the Nuge and Dave Mustaine to get wind of this little battle, they’d elect to solve it with guns, and not ballots? (And why do I have a feeling that we might be seeing an upset in this little battle once the smoke clears?)
