The Greatest Album Covers

List Criteria: Vote for the albums based the cover art only

Besides the music, some of the most iconic bands are known for their creative artwork. Often times this extends to their album covers. The most memorable album covers add an element of coolness to the music that can turn a great album into a transcendent one. Some of the greatest album covers are the most basic. When Andy Warhol designed the Velvet Underground & Nico, no one outside of the artist himself would have associated a banana with that band. Now they do.

Same goes for Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, which has turned the prism into an iconic image due to the album cover. The same goes for Nirvana's Nevermind album cover. The kid whose photo was used is never going to live down being the focal point of the most important album of the '90s. These are some of the most recognizable albums in music history and the creativity that went into writing and recording the album went into making the album cover as great as the music. Looking at the records on this list, that was no easy task.

Vote for the album you think has the greatest album artwork. There are plenty of good options here so it's impossible to go wrong.
