      • Virgin Killer - The Scorpions
        29/05/13
        One more from the Wikipedia list of controversial album art. This one is probably top of the list, as the cover features what appears to be a very young girl, in the nude, whose modesty is being protected only by a crack in the glass. The remixed version is, if anything, less extreme showing the g

      • Lemonade And Brownies - Sugar Ray
        28/05/13
        Yet another album cover remix taken from the list of controversial album art. The chick on the cover of Lemonade And Brownies by Sugar Ray is Nicole Eggert who is probably best known for... appearing naked on the cover of this album. Naked, with her boobs on the floor and her ass in the air. Nice

      • Tinkerbells Fairydust - Tinkerbells Fairydust
        27/05/13
        Another in the series of controversial album art. This cover is taken from the 1960s eponymous album by Tinkerbells Fairydust. The cover shows a cheeky Tinkerbell with her back to us, showing her pert ass. But what if Tinkerbell were not quite so cutesy, and had a darker side. With black wings a

      • Lovehunter - Whitesnake
        23/05/13
        Lovehunter by Whitesnake is yet another album cover inspired by the list of controversial album art. In it we see a naked woman with her back to us riding a great big snake (though oddly, given the name of the band, not a white one). In the remix, the one woman has been replaced by three and the s

      • Candy-O - The Cars
        22/05/13


        Not just one, but two remixes of the cover of this 1979 album from Boston rockers The Cars. This is another taken from Wikipedia's list of controversial album art. The original cover shows a 50s babe in a seethrough black bodystocking reclining. The remixes do more of the same, b

      • Poni Hoax - Poni Hoax
        21/05/13
        Trent Bridges of Alabama contacted us to ask if we had seen the page on Wikipedia that discussed controversial album art as he said it would be the kind of thing we would like. It seems that there is some album art around that doesn't necessarily need a make-over or remix by AllBum.Art. But t

      • That Ole Devil Called Love - Alison Moyet
        20/05/13
        Another submission from England where Alison Moyet is pop chart gold, at least so Gusty Tillson (you couldn't make these British names up - what were their parents thinking) tells us. The cover shows Ms Moyet 'carping on' about That Ole Devil Called Love. The remix shows the devil u

      • Ice Ice Baby - Vanilla Ice
        19/05/13
        Vanilla Ice, Ice Ice Ice Baby Ice and all that trash. Not only is the song annoying but the cover of this 1990 single from Mr Ice is just a jar of unnecessarily vivid colors and does nothing to conceptualize what an ice ice baby might be. Cue a remix. It seems the ice ice baby, is a naked babe wh

      • Dancing In The City - Marshall Hain
        17/05/13
        Neer heard of Marshall Hain? Neither had we until this entry was submitted by Mike Rotch of England. Apparently they were 'all the rage in 1978'. Mike says that the original cover is 'crap, because there's no dancing and no city'. So Mike has remixed it for us all and sa

      • The Magic Number - De La Soul
        16/05/13
        Three, apparently, is The Magic Number according to this 1990 single from New York hip-hop trio De La Soul. Does this refer to the three of them, or some other triple-play? Whichever, the cover of their single provides no enlightenment. The remix provides much more clarity. Three, it would seem,

      • Kung Fu Fighting - Carl Douglas
        15/05/13
        According to Carl Douglas, everybody was Kung Fu Fighting. If that is the case, then why, in this 1972 cover from Mr Douglas's single, is there only himself who is doing the fighting. A nice remix is necessary. And what better than to add some other people, doing some kung fu? And even bett

      • You Wear It Well - Rod Stewart
        14/05/13
        What? What is it? What do you mean 'I can see where this is going'. Of course you can. Rod Stewart is singing about someone else Wearing It Well, yet his cover shows him - egotist! Who was wearing what well, that is the question? Well maybe it was this chick who is wearing her outfit v

      • Thriller - Michael Jackson
        13/05/13
        Anyone of a certain age remembers the video for Thriller by Michael Jackson. If you don't, think Glee with Zombies. But the cover of his 1982 album shows no signs of the dancing Zombie nature of the video, or the cackles of Vincent Price on the soundtrack. And so, Mr Jackson's cover has

      • Use It Up And Wear It Out - Odyssey
        12/05/13
        Enjoying the disco vibes from yesterday's cover remix from Odyssey, another of their songs raised its head as needing a remix. Use It Up And Wear It Out's original cover sees the band standing around hugging each other. So what is worn out about that? Well right behind them was the girl

      • Going Back To My Roots - Odyssey
        11/05/13
        A song such as Going Back To My Roots by Odyssey deserves a right rampant remix. The first line of the song (and the chorus) is Zippin' Up My Boots. Well it is if you ignore the 'Adji Moar Ay' stuff at the very beginning. What that's about is anyone's guess. So boot zippi

      • We Built this City - Starship
        10/05/13
        As with yesterday's remixed cover art, today's effort from Starship was also inspired by the picture on the remix. We Built This City is one of those songs that is probably being played by some radio station or other, somewhere across the country, at all times. In fact it might be a cove

      • Motorcycle Emptiness - Manic Street Preachers
        09/05/13
        It is fair to say that Motorcycle Emptiness by the unheard of Manic Street Preachers is only here for one reason. That reason is because the title of their 1992 song has the word 'motorcycle' in it, and something just had to be done with this picture of a hot chick leaning naked on a hot

      • Three Times A Lady - Commodores
        08/05/13
        Three Times A Lady, right? Not if you're the designer of this cover from the Commodores' 1978 single. No, no ladies at all. Just a rather poor picture of the band - done six ways. Not three, but six. Time for a remix then, and what do we see in the remix? Once. Twice. Three times a

      • (Don't Fear) The Reaper - Blue Öyster Cult
        07/05/13
        The 1970s were funny days. Hilarious in fact. The cover from (Don't Fear) The Reaper by the Blue Öyster Cult demonstrates this perfectly. What the hell is going on there then? Don't even begin to try and analyze it. Instead, use the remixed version in which we see two helpless girls w

      • Black And Gold - Sam Sparro
        06/05/13
        Black And Gold. The title alone inspired the idea for a remix for Sam Sparro's 2008 single. Black, as in a pretty lady of african-american descent. Gold as in a pretty lady of caucasian descent who has got a nice sun tan. Could such a picture be found? Of course it could! And so in the rem

      • Rebel Yell - Billy Idol
        05/05/13
        Billy Idol has featured a number of times on AllBum.Art as, for some reason, his songs and covers are perfectly designed for a good old remix. Mr Idol's 1983 album Rebel Yell needs a bit more of a revolutionary feel to it. Short of adding a picture of Fidel Castro, the alternative that has be

      • Firework - Katy Perry
        04/05/13
        The cover of this 2010 song from Katy Perry is lacking in some very important areas, and by far the greatest is the complete lack of any kind of Firework. How can you have a song called Firework and then not have sight nor sound of a Firework on the cover itself. That needed to be fixed, and fixed

      • Dressed For Success - Roxette
        03/05/13
        What did success look like in Sweden in the 1980s? Contrary to popular myth, and if Roxette are to be believed through the medium of the cover of their 1989 single Dressed For Success, it looked like a lot of leather. Well in 2013 it looks very different. Gone is the leather, and in are high heel

      • For Those About To Rock We Salute You - AC/DC
        02/05/13
        Australian heavy metal band AC/DC scored an internationally acclaimed hit with their 1981 album For Those About To Rock We Salute You. Cleverly, the cover of the album shows a canon, as used for military salutes. It would be more obvious though, if the military salute were given by a real person a

      • The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys - Traffic
        01/05/13
        Homer Simpson said that 'everyone knows that rock peaked in 1974'. Well D'Oh! For prog rock bands like Traffic that might be true. If the cover of their album The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys is anything to go by, it's easy to see why. If you're going to have a title wi
