So we discussed what the meaning of each album titled is, but what does everyone think each album cover means? Mostly, I'm referring to the skeleton ideas on the smash and ixnay, the progression on americana, the flaming skull on co1 (does anyone know where the skull came from or what it represents?), and the statue on splinter... most confused about the statue. ideas?

wow, the answer couldn't be easier (for some albums) i'm not quite sure for s/t. ignition i like the starting of a flame and some of the songs sound like ones you might sing with and acoustic around the campfire and the cover has a campfire on it. smash is like and x-ray and some of the bones look smashed or dented, and when you smash your bones you get an x-ray. ixnay on the hombre is simple, hombre is a spanish word and there is a whole bunch of spanish shit going on on the cover. americana is crazy i have no clue. co1 not positve but... i think maybe the skull represents a crazy person that has a conspiracy all their own (obviosly not anymore...it's their logo but i think that might be what they were shooting for.) splinter really the pic has nothing to do with a splinter (relating to wood) so again im cluless

Yes, and the front of Ignition has a house on fire, doesn't it? And what is the subject of Burn It Up? Also, It's igniting a fire.

1.)you obviously didn't read my post thouroghly
2.)i see where you think the cover is a house but im pretty sure it's a campfire consisting of small sticks and twigs

Here's a thought, maybe they just pick covers that look cool, and don't make every album cover have a story.

some cases, yeah, but It's not like Nirvana talked about naked babies swimming for dollars on a fishing pole

speaking of naked babies swimming for dollars, here's the kid from Nirvana's album cover for nevermind. He's about 14 now:

Why is it I never noticed this thread until now :confused:.

Self Titled - I'm not sure and really want to find out, doesn't show much because they were new perhaps?

Ignition - ??? Looks cool? Gives it style/character? Burn It Up has something to do with it?

Smash - Don't know, looks cool and gives style/character especially towards punk style, doesn't relate to the title though.

Ixnay On The Hombre - Symbolising death and a Mexican theme of celebrating and death because it looks cool especially towards punk style.

Americana - Not sure, showing one of America's fucked up children playing with something dangerous because they are uneducated maybe therefore wanting to show how America is and looks?

Conspiracy Of One - Couldn't think of anything? Just symbolising the band for some odd reason? Making the public aware of them???

Splinter - Don't know, just showing their "explosiveness" (how the statue blows up) for some odd reason???

and if wanted, Greatest Hits - Showing the band's logo symbolising the band becase it is about the band and they're hits, maybe blackish colours because they can't reuse Conspiracy Of One and it looks good perhaps?

I can explain them all, but you are going to have to wait until my next complete analysis of an album. I think S/T is going to be next, btw. Until then, see my Ixnay analysis.

I spent the better part of the last decade trying to invent an anal bum cover. failing to do so is my greatest regret.
