    I know I'm a few months early with this topic, but I found this terrible Kenny Rogers album cover for "Christmas From The Heart" and I was so appalled by the thing that I had to share...

    Hideous! Between the CGI background and the ugly snow globe... Yech! Plus the colors clash pretty badly.

    What are the worst / ugliest Christmas album covers that you've ever seen? They can be original releases, re-releases, or whatever.

    In the realm of Xmas cover art, that's not that bad. To be honest, there are not too many good ones just because the trademark look of the holiday is a cheese fest. Colors of red and green, bright lights, wrapping paper, fireplaces and Santa himself don't help matters.

    When it comes to Christmas, the gaudier the better in my opinon. I like my Christmas trees with old, goofy vintage ornaments, the gaudiest garland and tinsel, and red and green lights.

    One imagines Brown saying, 'I ain't wearing no Santa suit. Photoshop the b!tch'.

    :D

    Perhaps the thread should have been Best Christmas Album Covers...

    I mean, are there any?:)

    This cover for Stevie Wonder's Someday At Christmas:

    It looks like someone locked poor Stevie out of the house in the dead of winter and told him there was a crowd of people he had to perform for!

    Also it looks like Stevie might've been hitting the Christmas cookies pretty hard, there- he's a little pudgy...

    A lot of Elvis' Xmas LP jackets are pretty cheesy, but this one's probably the weirdest...

    That is hideous! "Hi, I'm Giant Elvis Head, and I'll watch over your church to keep you all safe".

    With goofy grins on their faces and their eyes at half-mast, it looks the The Grasshoppers hopped a little too much grass:

    Hell, I'd be willing to bet that's a great album!

    I'm kind of curious to know what that sounds like...

    Is William Hung secretly a celebrity on South Park?

    I don't have it any more. If I recall correctly it was a rather generic sounding surf/go-go affair. Kind of like Singapore's Travellers or The Stylers.

    Ah. I was thinking it would be Ventures-type Xmas tunes.
