Respectful Insolence

Weekend album cover mayhem

Music fan that I am, I found a particularly amusing video of album covers battling it out in a hysterically ultraviolent and cartoon-bloody manner. (Via Stereogum.)

If you’re like me, and have many hundreds of albums, you’ll find yourself counting how many of the album coveres featured in this video you actually own. I own quite a few of them, although I will tell you off the bat that I most assuredly do not own the Shaun Cassidy album featured. (I do, however, have Metallica’s Master of Puppets.)

Genius!

    Dead Kennedys vs. Van Halen!!!! That would be a good matchup if Van Halen got David Lee Roth.
