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.
PJ Olsson’s gargantuan winged infant narrowly beat Texas hip-hopper Chingo Bling (by just eight votes!) in the first round of our Worst Album Cover Of The Year Tournament, but can the (big) little fella go on to crush ex-Kisser Peter Criss, who’s marshaled the forces of the entire planet behind him? Decide whether it’s Olsson’s angels or Criss’ united nations after the jump!
Returning to our “We Aren’t The World” bracket in our Worst Album Cover Of The Year Tournament (and if you haven’t voted in any of our previous installments, there’s still time), today we look at two covers in which the subjects are floating in space. In one corner, you have Chingo Bling’s pictorial ode to evading the border patrol, while in the other you have PJ Olsson’s depiction of angels floating around New York City in anticpation of picking their noses with the Empire State Building’s iconic spire. Which one is going to jump into the next round? That’s up to you.
