Pretty much every Descendents album sucks artwork-wise though.

It's like some friend of theirs voluntarily designed the cover and they were too polite to tell him it was shit.

I like that particular cover, they do have some poor ones though.

Pavement have some of the most heinous covers ever, thank god the music more than makes up for it.

The thing that usually gets me is the text on album covers. I'd prefer to see it worked in as part of the design rather than just typed on top as an afterthought.

as 'boring' as that type is, i think it completely works for that album. it's no frills, straight to the point and doesn't fuck around. kinda like the record itself.

there's no point in putting some super flashed-up type all over something if it doesn't NEED to be there....

Is it meant to be a good album with a bad cover? Otherwise, I know nu-metal is an easy target, but this one stands out
