I AM FUEL, YOU ARE FRIENDS

If you are looking for an idea for your next album cover, allow me to suggest . . .

For Julie's 16th birthday, it looks like 'ole Dad is finally gonna pop the question.

Aaah, just another picture of my typical Friday night.

Cody, you can borrow a feelin' from me. It's that kind of heeby-jeeby feelin' that your lazy eye gives me. Or maybe it's your moustache. One of the two.

Aww, only 50 cents for Joyce? Heck, I'd pay, like 60, 65.

Now, ventriloquism is always a logical connection to environmentalism, because Trees Talk Too. What?

Thank God Ken is by request only.

Because nothing says, "Do me, you sexy, sexy beast" like the word pooh in your name.

"For the first time: Tino." Good God, Tino, please point those shorts in another direction. Gracias.

Devastatin' Dave is a turntable slave. What else can I say?

Do they have an actual midget in their crusade?

Satan is real, and apparently he lives in your barbeque. If that's not enough to keep you on the straight and narrow, I don't know what is.

Now these guys look like they know how to have a good time.
Am I right or am I right or am I right? Right?

And that's just unfortunate.

Too funny! My wife recently bought me a refigerator magnet with that picture of "Joyce"; the magnet says: "Sorry I missed church. I was busy practicing witchcraft and becoming a lesbian". Classic.

Ja, Ja! The covers are really awesome, specially the Tino’s cover!.

Maybe, because I live in a Spanish-speaking country…

He was a former member of the hideous Spanish all-kid group called “Parchis”… and he was A.K.A “la ficha roja” (the Red Chip or counter, I don’t know)… but, if you think that Menudo was the lowest point of the Latin-American pop culture you should try “Parchis” and of course Tino.

They were surreal… simply to Kitsch for this world.

See you.

For what it's worth, the cover of "Satan is Real" may look stupid...but the music on that album is classic. Gram Parsons covered "The Christian Life" with The Byrds on "Sweetheart of the Rodeo".

Not only does Satan Is Real contain classic, influential music--a mint vinyl copy of that record is worth big cash. Can't say the same for the rest of the folks on display...

I was disappointed not to see Swamp Dogg's "Rat On" album on this list. I don't think I've ever laughed as hard as I did when I saw that for the first time.

I don't know where you got the album covers from (I'm trusting you did your own research!) but I remember distinctly seeing at least half of these covers on a music quiz show called Spicks & Specks (ABC tv Australia). They have a segment where the contestants have to guess what word on an album cover is blanked out.

I now know where they get their ideas from. ;)

Oh no, I did not assemble these myself (although I did caption them in fine form). Someone emailed them to me. I claim no genius.

That"s not pooh - I think that's Shaq! Dang, no wonder the Heat have not been playing well this year. He's been, well, er, poohing?!

I wonder why the sunglassess. Is there a lot of glare? Down there?

There are quite a few places on the web that have re-posted the same awful covers, but one of the funniest writeups is Dusty's take.

Your blog's great--nice work!

I actually have a copy of that Ken record. I bought exactly because it was so awesome. Never have listened to it though.
