Tastebuds.fm, a dating website that matches people based on their music interest, has this gallery of the Worst Album Covers of All Time. It sadly lacks the brilliant commentary from the (now defunct?) Salami Tsunami site, but you can at least feast your eyes on some truly disturbing album covers from an obviously tasteless era.
