What's your favorite Green Day album art and why? My personal favorite album art is the cover of Insomniac. I love the cover because it seems so chaotic, just like the album. It just fits the music and the mood perfectly. Remember to explain why you think you're favorite album art is great. You can put your favorite from other bands if you wish also.

I love Green Day's artwork. Always unique. American Idiot has really iconic and simpler artwork, which I love. But I find Dookie's artwork to be really fun and sarcastic, which I also love.

I've always loved the American Idiot album art. It's so bold and simple, yet very elegant. The street art style of 21CB is really cool too.

For non Green Day stuff, I think Linkin Park's Hybrid Theory artwork is good. Again, it's that street art/graffiti look to it. There's also Smash and Americana by The Offspring. Smash because it's a skeleton and I'm fascinated by bones, and Americana because it's super funny to me for some reason. A crippled kid on a swing with a giant, mutated bug in his lap and a tentacle reaching out of nowhere! What's not to love there? Carnavas by SIlversun Pickups is also appealing to me. It's more abstract, but it's kind of beautiful in a way.

Spoiler


Just a side note -  if this isn't about Green Day's album artwork specifically, shouldn't it be in General Chat or Other Bands?

I really like kerplunk art work and nimrod. Kerplunk I don't really need to explain bc u no it's bad ass. Nimrod I just like on the back of the yearbook with everyone's face blocked with a big nimrod sign.

 

My reasons suck.

I like Nimrod's because of the annuals. I also like Stray Hearts, it seemed so simple yet just dirty.

I gotta go with Dookie. There's just so much going on there, that I feel like I always find something new to look at whenever I see it. But American Idiot was good too. Simple and straight to the point.

I definitely don't think I can pick just one... I'll just describe a few. :happy:

 

1. American Idiot (Green Day) ~ Mostly because what everyone else  said. :P Simple, iconic, and straight to the point.

2. 21st Century Breakdown (Green Day) ~ I love the graffiti look. It just gives it a nice, cool effect.

3. Mylo Xyloto (Coldplay) ~ Similar to 21stCB, they also goes with a graffiti look, but it's more colorful, which represents the story of the album.

4. The Sound Of Madness (Shinedown) ~ They chose a very simple take on the cover for this album, which almost counters the style of lyrics and music. This contrast works pretty well.

5. A Thousand Suns (Linkin Park) ~ I really don't know what to say about this one. You can really only understand it if you listen to the whole album. :D

I'm going to go with Warning. I love the fact that the band members are featured on the cover and throughout the sleeve. There's something really natural and laid back about it, yet it's also very melancholic somehow. Plus, I think the logo with the man being struck by lightening is really clever and relates well to the lyrics in the title track.

American Idiot. I don't know how many times I've drawn that Heart like a Hand-Grenade or done projects for my art class centered around it. Also, Dookie and Insomniac, they're both so detailed and show meaning to the album.

I also like Biffy Clyro's artwork. If you haven't heard of them, it's worth checking out just for the artwork at least. Their new album, "Opposites" is amazing.

This was actually supposed to be just Green Day. I should of cleared that up in the post. Sorry. But the post about the other bands are interesting as well.

I can't explain why but for some reason I love the 21st Century Breakdown artwork and it is my favorite album artwork of any band. I can't explain why, it just is.
