Heavy metal is generally thought of as rock's totally hardcore cousin, and heavy metal album art is supposed to reflect the band's extreme fist pumping and headbanging nature.
But sometimes in the quest to prove how hardcore you are you just end up making yourself look like a high-caliber tool.
Even bands like Iron Maiden, who usually get the album art so right, can fall from grace when they ditch the hand drawn art to make the leap into the digital age.
But all bands have to start somewhere near the bottom, and it's okay if they let their less than talented buddy draw the cover art for their first album, so they can look back on it some day and smile.
