Like the album itself, the art for 2004’s American Idiot is hardly subtle. A heart-shaped hand grenade, bleeding and designed to mimic Communist propaganda, was an integral part of Green Day’s angsty tribute to the nation’s post-9/11 political turmoil. 003. 051. 49. Taylor Swift, '1989' (2014). Taylor Swift’s fifth studio album 1989 was a departure for the singer, so it only makes sense that the cover broke with tradition as well. Shaped as a Polaroid photo from the era, Swift’s face is cut off, highlighting an '80s sweatshirt while evoking memories of a different time.
The number one album was The Queen Is Dead by The Smiths. The Smiths’ The Queen Is Dead is the greatest album of all time. It’s better than anything the Beatles ever did (though Revolver came close). Meanwhile, the band Queen is nowhere on the list at all, whereas Queens of the Stone Age shows up thrice (they also show up Thrice, who don’t appear). Some other interesting highlights include Oasis’ Definitely Maybe starting the top 10, PJ Harvey’s Let England Shake making an impressive No. 15, Arcade Fire’s Funeral (13) slotting higher than My Bloody Valentine’s Loveless (18), and Outkast’s Stankonia only good enough to slip in at 500.
