    I know Van Halen isn't known for having spectacular album cover art but I think they have some pretty cool covers. For my favorite cover I gotta go with 1984 with Live, Right Here Right Now coming in second.

    Definitely 1984. But 5150 and Fair Warning have cool covers also.

    My vote would be for 1984 or Van Halen. Too close to just pick one.

    My favorite album cover, cause it seems to be a sign of what is in the album, it VH3. You see, the hand sticking out could symbolize what these guys will be doing if they put out more crap like that....begging for spare change.

    actually, the ass that I am, the pick is on the inside. But, hey, it should have been on the outside. When you listen to the album, you FEEL like you have been shot in the stomach...and mugged.

    None of the covers really move me, to be honest. Two of them (VHII and FUCK) are pretty basic albums with the band logo on the front. Diver Down is just red and white stripes. 5150 is... odd. 3's cover just plain sucks.

    I guess if I had to pick one, I like the entire packaging idea of OU812. Yeah, it's a cop of what they did with Fair Warning, but it's simple and gets the point across. Then there's that whole Darwin monkey on the back.

    The only thing I don't enjoy about the packaging of OU812 is the songs are listed alphabetically instead of numerically on the outside.

    I always thought Balance's album cover was cool.
    CHICAGO WHITE SOX - 2005 WORLD CHAMPIONS

    The Chicago White Sox (1901-present) - The Original SOX - Proof

    The Boston Americans (1901)
    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    I actually really like the Jap. cover of Balance with the single headed kid on it. I never liked the siameese twin thing on the US release but the Jap is just to cool. I also really like OU812, 1984 and 5150.

    Was the OU812 cover a mock of the Beatles album "With the Beatles?" It's pretty similar and it would seem too coincidental that the Beatles cover has nothing to do with OU812.

    Yeah I think they got the idea from that Beatles cover.

    I also like OU812 the best! A great picture! [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]
