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.

Explain.

Dookie, American Idiot, and The Trilogy are my favorite covers, Insomniac following closely. My least favorite artwork is 21st Century Breakdown though.

My all time favorite is American Idiot. I love the others too, but AI is just awesome. The grenade-hand is probably one of the most symbolic things ever. At first you look and see a hand holding a heart. Then it turns out to be a hand grenade. Yet you see the blood dripping onto the wrist, which shows that this is a heart turned grenade. The white hand clutching the heart grenade is suffocating it. I could go on into a huge rant about all the symbolism behind all the parts of the AI album cover, but that would probably turn out to be a few page essay. In short, the AI album work is the simplest, yet has the most behind it.

I actually love the 21st century breakdown artwork. Have you taken a look at all of the artwork for the singles? They're really cool.

Probably Dookie, as there's so much going on and it's all in cartoon.
Love Insomniac and Shenanigans is good too, and I agree that AI is iconic. Not mad about 39/Smooth or Warning and dislike the trilogy, however.
Love drawing little heart hand grenades, X's, Dookie explosions, and Kerplunk flowers everywhere.

Aside from GD, love It Culls You by The Envy Corps, The Resistance by Muse and Californication by RHCP.

Dookie. it's real nostalgic to me. I remember seeing it for the first time in the fall of 1995 at my local record store. fell in love with it. seeing a monkey about to throw shit would catch any ten year old's eye.

I probably haven't met a Green Day album cover I haven't liked. :P Though if I had to choose, maybe my top five would be Dookie, Insomniac, Nimrod, 21CB, Demolicious. Quite a number of people talk shit about the Trilogy covers, but I actually kinda have a soft spot for them.  :cool:

American Idiot's my favorite cause its so iconic and bold yet simple but also because it uses the lyrics so creatively and its definitely the best line to use for the album art. I also love the Kerplunk art cause it looks really cool and I love how it comes from the little story in the lyric book.

Oh yeah, Kerplunk. I also love it. I could swap it for Demolicious in my top five.

I think Dookie for its cartoonish theme, and AI for the simplicity and iconic looks.

For non-GD I would say Dirt by Alice in Chains. That one just fits so perfectly to the lyrical vibes on the record (example: Them Bones)
Also, although I've never really listened to it much, I would say that War by U2 has a very strong and moving artwork.

Its a toss up between Kerplunk and the JOS single art, because I just love the aesthetic and feel that the JOS single art has, but kerplunk is just classic, and great, and also one of my favourite albums. If I ever get a Green Day related tattoo, it'll probably be "Kerplunk" all stylized and stuff.
