10 Worst Album Covers of All Time

The wonderful album cover above comes from Dusty Scott's Salami Tsunami blog, where he describes some of the worst album covers of all time. The description for Joyce is hysterical:

That's right, just "Joyce". It practically sells itself. For as much as 50 cents, judging by the price tag. Kudos to the marketing genius who came up with this layout. (I think Joyce went on to become an angry algebra teacher at my high school. She always used to bust me and my girlfriend making out behind the building.)

Here's Joyce's big day-

"Hello, Joyce residence"

"Hi, Joyce? This is Artie, your producer. We got the photographer to come in today, so grab an extra bottle of aqua-net and get your hot ass in here. I have a nude badminton tournament at noon." (I can only guess at the weird stuff these people did for fun)

"Oh, what should I wear?"

"Something with rainbow colors, or whatever you have on. I don't know what the background is going to be. Those faggots from the 12 top hits album are using the fake living room."

"Great! I just got new glasses. I think they make my head look less human."

"err...good. Wear them. Bring a flower or something...to...accentuate your cheekbones"

"*giggle* okay, handsome, I'll be right over."

Little known fact about Joyce: She started the whole "one name" thing for singers. Madonna, Cher, Prince, Pantera...all Joyce wannabes.

Be sure to also check part 2. I really can't stop reading his site. It's that funny. You should be reading it too.
