albumthumb2013I know what you Uber Rockers want on a Monday morning. I know you want something a little fruity to put a spring in your step and a lustre on your cluster. I also know that you want a totally shite album cover to brighten your day. So how about Uber Rock's famous Album Cover Of The Week feature combining the two with a piece of artwork so bad that even the band in question defaced it?

That's not meant in a negative manner, of course: no, give me an album by a band almost named after your hometown featuring a skull-faced ghoul wearing a massive studded wristband getting his guts blown out by a shotgun any day of the week. Especially today. Yes, it's Uber Rock's Album Cover Of The Week.....

album86If you start the week of Uberpalooza by featuring a stonking piece of classic cover art you'd better have something connected lined up, right?

Mr HooHaa seems to think that Uber Rock's fabled Album Cover Of The Week feature is, in fact, an elaborate piss-take, the album covers selected actually being mocked by our evil selves, the bands' hard work with crayons and tracing paper being forgotten for some cheap laugh, insult being added to injury.....
