Here Are the 17 Worst Album Covers of the Year 2016 in Lists

5. Sum 41 
13 Voices

You remember that kid who started smoking cigarettes in elementary school and loved buying temporary tattoos from Safeway vending machines? Apparently he's friends with Sum 41, because that's the exact aesthetic they've dialled into with their latest LP.

4. Spring Breeding
No Dairy

Noise bands are supposed to make you uncomfortable, and Spring Breeding really succeeded in creating an album cover so loathsome that we want to bleach our eyeballs. Maybe that means it's a good album cover?

3. Corey Feldman 
Angelic 2 the Core

Look Corey — we love you man. We always have. But this god-awful cover art for your latest album brings back horrible memories of the terrifying kids show Knightmare. It makes Da motha fuckin share z0ne look classy. And mostly it just makes us want to give you a hug and tell you everything's going to be alright.

2. Metallica
Hardwired…To Self-Destruct

Metallica's long-awaited comeback album had its moments, but the release's accompanying artwork only raises one question: What if a pack of Fruit Roll-Ups was haunted by the ghost of some middle-aged rockers?

1. Kings of Leon 

We can't say for sure, but we're pretty certain the original working title of this album was Kings of Leon Bathe in Ejaculate.
