    I thought The Bloodhound Gang`s album was funny, mainly cuz it was the only one i recognized. I guess that was just a picture some guy sent to them, so they decided to use as an album cover

    peloos, I`ve downloaded an album after hearing one song by the band, sometimes not even the whole song.

    I`ve never downloaded a cd because of the cover art, some I hadn`t seen the cover art until years later, especially early on in iTunes life before they displayed the cover art.

    Fair enough, Ike. I have to say I`ve decided to download an entire album based on one song (or even just a part of it) before as well.

    That`s still different than "Oh, totally sweet cover! I think I`ll buy this!" or "You know what? I was expecting this to be an awesome album, but after seeing this cover, NEVERMIND!"

    Uh... Number 12 is fake.

    It`s obviously a joke album cover someone made in homage to the Simpsons episode where Milhouse`s father Kirk writes a song called "Can I Borrow A Feeling?" in a failed attempt to win back his wife.

    Come on IAB... My ancient a$$ caught this and no one else did???

    I am deeply ashamed. I am sorry for the Larz-covers, they were from a dark time in ou country`s history. They didn`t know any better, they were still experiencing the trauma from being raped by polar bears roaming the streets.

    I was pretty surprised to see that Die Toten Hosen`s album cover for Reich & Sexy wasn`t on here...

    For those that want to see it, I`ll provide the link, but keep in mind NSFW and 18+ lol...
