Cover Artwork That I Love

NOTE: This is not a list of the greatest album covers of all time, it just shows 20 that I personally... yeah.. love.

OK, so this is my favorite album of all time. And so is its cover. It features a famous photo of a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, burning himself to death in Saigon in 1963. The monk was protesting the country's president's administration for oppressing the Buddhist religion. The album is the best musical protest ever made, so it suits very well. When I bought the album I didn't notice the self-immolation at first, and I was pretty shocked when I did. First track: Bombtrack with its chorus "Burn, Burn, yes you're gonna burn!" full picture: ://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Burningmonk.jpg

Didn't think it was special at first, but later I realized how stylish the picture is, maybe the best of him.
