The Five Worst Album Covers of 2008

5. Death Cab for Cutie - Narrow Stairs
dcfcnarrowstairscover.jpgA cover that seems created to cause migraines. I suppose this shit's supposed to be a comment on our modern condition or something. If so, spare me.

4. REM - Accelerate
Just looking at this gives me a headache. As imaginative as Stipe's mumbling.

3. Coldplay - Viva La Vida
Another bad title/bad cover combo! And why are this woman's boobs on display? I get it: 2008, the year of the titty bar revolution.

2. Nine Inch Nails - Ghosts I-IV

1. Master - Slaves to Society
This horrendous cover not only beats all (ahem) comers this year--but since it's a reissue from 1995, it can retroactively claim the title for that year as well. Beyond tasteless, this is the kind of stuff metalheads pass off as humor. Incredulously signed by artist (and I'm using that term loosely) Michael Kull. --Darryl Smyers
