From the bizarre to the downright dismal, get a load of some of the worst Britpop album artworks to ever hit the shops.

  1. Supergrass - I Should Coco

    The band’s debut LP may have included fun-loving anthem, Alright, but it's cover made the band look like trolls who wanted to eat you.

  2. Suede - Coming Up

    Suede’s Coming Up may be a neon mess, but their album certainly makes up for it.

  6. Blur - Modern Life Is Rubbish

  7. Gay Dad - Leisure Noise

    Now, where have we seen this before? Designed by Peter Saville of New Order fame, Gay Dad’s Leisure Noise LP is so bad it's practically trying to run away from itself.

  8. Marion - This World And Body

    Either the photographer really loved those ceiling lights, or this is a case of really bad cropping.

  9. Space - Spiders

    Space's debut album is pretty much an arachnophobe's worst nightmare. And let's not even mention those bathroom tiles.

    A Britpop kid on a cross. Enough said.

  11. The Verve - Urban Hymns

    The Verve’s Urban Hymns artwork has become one of the most iconic post-Britpop covers around… but it is just a picture of five lads at the park.
