No. 1: Shut Up and Dance – 50 Worst Album Covers
‘Dance Before the Police Come!’
When we first laid eyes on this cover, we were completely baffled as to which of the two chunks of text was the group’s name. Turns out it’s Shut Up and Dance, which could be one of the best band names we’ve ever had the fortune of reading but here’s where we get a little uneasy…
The title ‘Dance Before the Police Come!’ on its own is cool. (“We’re gonna have so much friggin’ fun the pigs will want to shut us down!”) But when you’re flashing machetes and nunchucks, it makes us think this is no longer a voluntary dance and there’s a high probability the cops are coming because someone’s getting murdered.
