How did I leave out Velvet Underground’s Andy Warhol cover?

XTC - Go 2

After browsing through my collection in album art mode, I have come to the realization that I don’t really like any of the cover art.

The ones I hate the least:

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Fever to Tell

Pocahaunted - Chains

Purity Ring - Shrines

The Raveonettes -Pretty in Black

Warpaint - Warpaint

Barón Rojo (Red Baron) Metalmorfosis (thanks, Amazon…)

It’s one of the very few covers that comes to mind instantly; the rest are memorable but not necessarily “favorites”.

Ya know, after seeing that album cover for decades, I only now just realized the waitress is the Statue of Liberty. :smack:
