Worst Album Covers of 2010 (So Far)

We're over halfway into 2010, so let's get a head start on running the worst album covers of the year through the mud. Keep in mind that most of these awful wrappers surround excellent, inventive music. Enjoy our roundup of the worst album covers of 2010, so far!
First of all, it's been done better before, by Loverboy, Eagles of Death Metal, and yes, even "The Boss." Secondly, you've got a wedgie and it just looks painful.

'Los Superheroes'
J King & Maximan
Oh, you're here to rescue us? That's so nice! But, uh.. we'll just fight the eight-armed lizard guy ourselves, no offense, it seems safer. Also, did you forget your costumes?
Collaboration and psychedelic drugs can lead to great art. Or, these cutout images: "We'll have giraffes in space!" "Yeah, and emeralds, and a girl...with no eyes." (Just guessing!)
Beck's guitar playing sends crowds into hushed reverence. Beck's guitar, when hanging from a soaring eagle's talons, however, mostly results in non-stop giggling.
It's a big treat to see and hear these rock madmen tear it up live, but even the biggest fan probably took this album home like porn, wrapped in a thick paper bag.
'Friday Night at St. Andrews' must be the social event of the year, based on how well Bizarre has dressed here. Looks like the photographer surprised him at home around 2AM.

'Heroin'
The New York Times calls Z-Ro an "underrated rapper." Maybe people are judging this "book" based on the lazy art and heavy-handed metaphor on its cover.
03
'United Acid Emirates'
Ceephax Acid Crew
This worst album cover nominee should come with a black-light and an obnoxious freshman-year roommate, who's all too eager to enlighten you on an amplitude of fresh new sounds.
A flat-out disturbing image. Thank goodness they at least captured this inter-species lip-lock moment just before the blood started to flow.
01
'Manifesto'
Baseball star Alex Rodriguez was blasted last year, deservedly, for commissioning two paintings of himself as a centaur. Not the man-horse you want to emulate, guys!
