Thanks to our friends at Metal Injection (who in turn found this on Reddit), we were hipped to a Facebook page titled Minimalist awful album art on ms paint and also avant garde haikus. The page is pretty self-explanatory, and it’s as funny, bizarre, and sometimes strangely well-done as you might expect to see some of the most iconic album covers of all time (including some current ones) recast and not-so-painstakingly recreated in the limiting MS Paint. The avant garde haikus are pretty well done too, even if they take a back seat to the art. For example, the haiku for the album to the left is:
a dad rock album
does not deserve a fancy
cover after all
Ouch. While all genres and time periods are present and accounted for, there’s quite a bit of metal in there. Take a look at some of our favorites, then go like the page on Facebook.
