Ten albums that give Weezer's ridiculous new album-cover art for Hurley a run for its money

Over the past decade, Weezer has become more and more ridiculous, from its songwriting to its performances (Kenny G, seriously?).

And now you can add its album cover art to the running tally of ridiculousness: See the snapshot Jorge Garcia here, the actor who played Hurley on Lost? This is supposedly the cover of Weezer's forthcoming album, fittingly titled, you guessed it, Hurley. See what Rivers and company did there? The picture is what the album is called -- which is about as clever as calling you album Hurley in the first place.

Weezer's not the first band to just take an album title and make a simple picture of it as its cover. Nope, it's been done time and time again. It's a rare lack of ingenuity and a perfect storm of bad ideas that led to the albums on this list. Click through to find the ten worst album covers based on the album title.
