I remember seeing King Diamond record covers in the store and being utterly disturbed.







The gatefold to we sold our souls by Sabbath

    I saw a record I think it was Swedish or something. It had a young girl on the cover with a handprint on her butt and said something about her daddy. It was an incest pedophile joke or something. Didn't cop for a buck and sorta regretted it but it's probly better not to add to my got-it-just-for-the-cover crate anyway.

    For reasons I now cannot fathom the sight of these guys in a cave used to scare the crap out of me as a child.

    When I was a kid, this was always the first/front record in the store racks due to alphabetical order. Didn't scare the hell out of me as much as it helped put the hell in me, but yeah...

    Technically the inside cover, but still, this used to trip/freak the fuck out of me...

    Most of the Scorpions covers, maybe not scarey but real disturbing.

    Yeah creepy for sure. Also, that's not a normal rock...

    Still... great album. I've been wanting to upgrade from a second to first press with poster (which is pretty out there too).

  • Stumbled across this post and I had to share... It was scary front back and inside!

    I've never seen that cover, but there are a lot of similarities with a vivid nightmare I used to have when I was in uni.  Ahh!

  • Out of all my uncle's albums...this one really freaked me out

    I grew up in a place without television in the early 80s. We were over at a friend's house and they thought it would be cool to show me TV for the first time and they thought it would be a good idea for that 5 year old's first experience to be the Michael Jackson's Thriller video. So deeply traumatizing. For a long time.
