Chumbawamba - Tubthumper (1997)
I've talked before about 90s album cover design and its failings. Here, we see it in action. Any ape with a new copy of Photoshop could've made this fucker in about 30 seconds. Take a photo of a baby, throw a pukey pink color filter on it, paste on a big mouth, put it on a color-fill background, and there you go, instant shitty album cover.
With this cover, we also see that babies must be a recurring motif for Chumbawamba.
