Album artwork can make or break an album. It has to be carefully considered, selected and designed to appeal to fans and casual listeners alike. So if that is the case, what on earth were these artists thinking?
Maroon 5 have today revealed the artwork to accompany their new album 'Overexposed', and it's - well - awful! Maroon 5 are not the only band to recently fall victim to this. Even music greats can fall victim to decidedly dodgy album art - such as Arctic Monkeys, Liam Gallagher and Feeder.
Check out some of the worst album art from the past year, and let us know which album artwork has offended you.
