There's actually a book on this:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Seriously-Album-Covers-Nick-DiFonzo/dp/1845375890/

And loosely related, this is a good book, about the history of metal album covers:

Many Scorpions and Manowar album covers, G n R's The Spaghetti Incident, Dragonforce's Ultra Beatdown.

Many Scorpions album covers

Yeah but theirs are the "Awesomely bad" version, not the just plain "Bad" kind. These are genius:

There's lots of lists of obscure bad album art hiding on the internet, but this one mostly just makes me uncomfortable:

Dance of Death :(

I'm probably the only person on the planet who didn't think Dance Of Death was that bad.

Not the worst. But not good either:

In regards to my collection, I'm gonna have to say these...

The X Factor. The album cover was absolute shit, especially since FotD's cover wasn't THAT bad, and before that, everything was amazing.

Virtual XI was good, but the style didn't fit

Brave New World was awesome

Dance of Death was cringe worthy

AMoLaD has the single best non-Riggs cover for mainden.

Probably Virgin Killer by Scorpion, because it was basically child porn.

Also, Dance of Death, which was worse than child porn.

It does have that midget/baby/child(?) in a bikini. Not to mention it looks like it's supposed to be standing on the wolf but upon closer inspection it's just sort of hovering in the air.

Seriously, what the fuck.

Yeah, there's plenty wrong with that cover that can be analyzed for hours on end. The No More Lies EP cover is what the album cover should have been. It's actually kinda cool.

Damageplan. Nothing exciting about special effects behind the band

Reinventing the Steel, Stomp 442, and Volume 8 are also pretty bad.
