That belongs in the 'Would You..?' thread.  And even Jesus would answer 'f**k no, and I let Roman soldiers nail me!'

I came across this earlier on goodshowsir.co.uk



The description sold it to me: "Like early Dungeons and Dragons manual covers, but cruder, with an astronaut threatening Godzilla with a giant pencil tied to a notepad on his back.  Oh, and a chick on an altar wearing a skintight rosy pink bodysuit, because this is spiritual writing, darnit!"

I now want this very badly.

SBT

Man, that is beautiful. But how could the text inside live up to that cover?

I always admired the awfulness of this post-punk offering in my collection. Despite the dodgy photo, those colours are pretty much accurate. A special mention goes to the metal comb sticking out the jacket pocket.


This book was bought for me by a friend recently, and is apparently something of a classic:

That there is doing a damn good job of emulating the style of old Ladybird children's books, so I don't think it counts.

I'm really not quite sure how Eric Carmen ever got away with attempted rape on the cover for his 1980 album "Tonight You're Mine".
Even Spinal Tap would have baulked at that.



And the opening track is entitled "It Hurts Too Much"...

 If that's the quality of the babes on offer, it's no wonder Jesus has risen. Phwoar! :D I'm going to find my glasses so that I can get a better look.

 I found this little pic after a quick 'Worst Cover' serch.

 Stew.

Is that last one by Roger?
You ever notice that everyone who believes in creationism looks really unevolved? Eyes real close together, big furry hands and feet. "I believe God created me in one day." Yeah, looks like he rushed it.

I don't know, but those covers could be before and after shots.

Shocked by the lack of dodgy metal covers:

You may quote me on that.

Ahhh Metal Church. May have to drag some of mine out to listen to.

Worst, as in shocking.
Scorpions. Virgin Killer.
No image as even I can't tolerate the image of a naked child dipicted thus so.
