12. Joy Division - Still (1981)
Designer Peter Saville was instrumental in providing the enigmatic image of the legendary band Joy Division. His sleeve for their debut album Unknown Pleasures is an understated masterpiece, but we thought we'd pick this posthumous compilation. The title Still was a pun on the fact that the record was a response to all the JD bootleg releases that had emerged since the death of singer Ian Curtis (as in a "still" of bootleg booze). But Saville interpreted "still" as "calm", hence grey!
