A super-rare variation of The Beatles iconic Sgt Peppers album was valued last year at around $100,000 all because it featured the faces of 40 Capitol Records executives on the cover. But it’s easy to make super rare artwork, as proved by the internet, who are currently making MS Paint versions of album covers.
Originally started as a thread on the Kanye To The forum, (who will shoot me down if I don’t give them credit), it’s now spread over to Reddit and a bunch of other places. Here’s some of the best (and at the end are our own personally made versions of popular British albums).
Tyler, The Creator - WOLF
Chance The Rapper - Acid Rap
Danny Brown - XXX
Earl Sweatshirt - Doris
Biggie Smalls - Ready To Die
Drake - Nothing Was The Same
Kendrick Lamar - good kid, m.A.A.d city
Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Mac Miller - Watching Movies With The Sound Off
Our Own Artwork - by Ryan Bassil and Josie Turnbull
And then, because no one has made any British albums in MS Paint, and we know how to have fun, we made our own. Here's the Noisey teams personally drawn album covers.
Dizzee Rascal - Boy In Da Corner
The Streets - Original Pirate Material
Blur - Greatest Hits
The xx - Self Titled
Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am That's What I'm Not
Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures
Oasis - Definitely Maybe
The Libertines - Self Titled
