The Worst Album Art Of 2020
What hath lockdown and quarantines wrought?
You don’t need me to tell you how 2020 was dumpster fire of a year. You know. You’ll always know. Art and entertainment was still created and released, and for that we should all be grateful. These brief distractions helped in more ways than we could possibly imagine. That little bit of normalcy kept us going, even if we didn’t realize it. Of course, not all of it was particularly memorable or good.
As with previous years, here is a collection of some of the worst album art released in 2020. May it bring you a little bit of levity in a year full of pain. Special thanks to TovH writer Hans for contributing some of these modern art classics. And before you ask, no, we can’t do any better. That’s why we don’t even try. Let’s hope 2021 brings us relief, joy, and yeah, some more bad album art.
