Okay this might be a little bit of a weird subject but I’m sure some of you have seen the twitter account Images that could be album covers. This is pretty much that.

The premise is simple, observations that through being dramatic, humorous, powerful, or otherwise would fit on an album cover. Here are some examples.
I’m sure there already was a topic about it?
I checked before posting but you might be right.
This is hands down the best!

Here’s my proposed album cover. Okay okay, I photoshopped it JUST a little.
I tried to find a few of my own that I thought could work, here’s what I could come up with!

Turkey Vulture I saw sitting on a church has major metal band vibes, or maybe Christian rock?
This guy may work well for some sort of punk album, perhaps with some sort of social/political commentary in the lyrics. I’m sure someone could make a metaphor out of this.
While unfortunately not my clearest spider photo, I’ve always loved the feel of this one. I think something like this could be great for songs that seem cutesy on the surface but with a subtly creepy undertone.
The Flaming Seagulls. I think they were a real band. ;-)
Definitely isn’t the clearest picture I’ve taken but the background is recognizable enough that anyone who knows the skyline of Indianapolis would probably think “that’s a cool looking album cover”
