Future Linkin Park Album Art / Title Options

October 10, 2010

Just saw these online, and realized how high the bar is really set when it comes to naming an album and making a cover.  I hope to someday capture even the slightest glimmer of the genius seen here.

    I’ll keep my laughter to myself but really…did they stop and think about what they were doing?
    Album 1)Depressing.Was that really an album?
    Album 2)So corny I blushed
    Album 3)”Let Me Touch Him”…..nuff said.Possibly sponsored by the Catholic church
    Album 4)The word “EPIC!!” goes off in my head when I see this.They should have collaborated with the Village People
    Album 5)Really…? If he’s real,they look like they’re about to give him a big hug!

    In the video you can see quite good effects and sync. I made it for 2-3 days. I don’t believe you have time to watch my video, but if you find some free time, please watch it!

    They’re fantastic album covers! Mike, I highly recommend the next album cover to be a real work of art – what about the LP guys dress up as Glam Rock guys? Complete with spandex, nasty boofy hair, wild make up, glitter, gigantic boots and heaps of sparkling coloured shirts and pants (TIGHT pants). And maybe you can even cuddle a tiger to make it a tad more authentic. Don’t forget to pout in the photos!

    What has been seen cannot be unseen.

    “All My Friends Are Dead” I 100% approve of.

  8. shabyta on October 12, 2010 at 9:03 pm

    Hmmmm “let me touch him” tempting..
    But plz.. dress like Manowar’s one!!!

  9. penneysound on October 12, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    in all seriousness, i think your next album should be called “grand unified theory”

    carl sagan often talked about how much sheer joy there is in a scientific worldview, and how it could be conveyed to everyone through art and music, if somebody just had the mind to do it. if anyone can, it’s linkin park. the way the last album used imagery of disaster and ruin to convey purely abstract feeling, the same could be done with the scientific senses of scale, awe, and wonder.

    grand unified theory

  10. mercenary18 on October 12, 2010 at 1:09 pm

    I think u guys should do sumthing real close to Man O War Anthology cover =D except maybe naked, and jus covered by ur instruments of choice…and the back of the cd should show the back side of the picture! LOL I kno A LOT of people who would LOVE that! lol

  19. Julian on October 11, 2010 at 6:53 am

    you know you freaked me out when I saw your post title…

  20. arnstev on October 11, 2010 at 5:47 am

    it seems you give us a message that the LP is getting old and maybe going to have a style like that in the future.

  21. levidobson on October 11, 2010 at 5:45 am

    baahahaha lol, crack up man. take the advice from let me touch him, try out some suits of something xD

  22. Alexandra Nofi on October 11, 2010 at 5:22 am

    Your sarcasm alone is enough to make me laugh. The pictures get the winning chuckle.

    Here’s the sad fact: Some label actually thought these people were good enough to be signed.

  23. evooba on October 11, 2010 at 5:07 am

    Haha epic covers! Thx for sharing … When I read the first one I was like “What?!?” lol xD

  24. Hell_enia on October 11, 2010 at 4:42 am

    I ADORE YOUR SENSE OF HUMOUR!!!!

    PS; Visit Greece. Again.. ;-))))

  25. Agata (gucio86) on October 11, 2010 at 3:08 am

    Hilarious… “Let me touch him” is my favourite, I fell of the chair when I imagined you guys on a cover like that😀

    Btw, little off the funny topic – have you ever heard about “Playing for Change”? You might have, I live in Poland, a lot of great things don’t reach us here easily. A friend of my father’s send me a link to one of the episodes a while ago (it was episode #2). She knows how much I love everything that could be inspirational, especially when it involves movies or music (preferably both). It literally made me cry.

  26. skyolker on October 11, 2010 at 1:00 am

    Why don’t you just combine all 5? That would be epic! =))))))

  27. romangrace83 on October 11, 2010 at 12:21 am

    HAAHAHAHAH omg!!!! i can’t stop laughing!!! where did you find these covers mike??? only you can do that!!!!🙂 i have to thank you and phoenix for made me laugh so hard with the #pantslessmike and #phoenixnaked thing on twitter!!! you’re awesome guys!!!! hi from Italy!

  28. Xenith on October 11, 2010 at 12:11 am

    Couldnt agree more with HYCREXXIA

    “next LP album title: Firin’ ma Lazorz
    take it into consideration mike”
    😄

  29. dorito82 on October 10, 2010 at 10:40 pm

    hahaha great titles! I think some parents might question you guys with some of those tho… lol

  31. mel995 on October 10, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    “let me touch him” “all my friens are dead” O_O hahahahahaha xD I couldn’t stop laughing!

    hey mike come back soon to argentina please! the show was the best in the world for me…😀

    ♥♥

  32. nerd42 on October 10, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    “All My Friends Are Dead” is a pretty cool title actually

  33. bananagabbana on October 10, 2010 at 9:14 pm

    ZIP ZAP RAP!

  34. melbapinckney on October 10, 2010 at 6:32 pm

    Mike, they’re silly album covers. The Linkin Park style album covers are way better than these. Your covers express who LP really are. Continue being cool and creative, man. You’re doing fine.

  35. hycrexxia on October 10, 2010 at 5:46 pm

    next LP album title: Firin’ ma Lazorz
    take it into consideration mike

  36. slowlearner32 on October 10, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    “LET ME TOUCH HIM” lol.

  37. linkinparkfansince2000 on October 10, 2010 at 4:50 pm

    Hey Mike I think this will help too http://holeytonal.com/2009/02/the-best-music-game-ever/

  38. randoms98 on October 10, 2010 at 4:46 pm

    You have 4 times already! Really you drew a winged-soldier and put distorted lyrics to Papercut on Hybrid Theory. The wings showing the soft side of the band, and the soldier showing the hard side. You named your second album Meteora. That’s perfect. Then Minutes To Midnight referring to the doom’s day clock, and the cover makes you look mysterious, as if your really changing the world with your music. A Thousand Suns is a line that shows up alot on the album, not on just on one track, and the cover… No one knows what it is, maybe the monster that lives inside your closet I don’t know, but it’s better that we (fans) don’t. You guys have EVERYTHING down!

    “let me touch him” would have been a great album title, mike xd

    you guys were awesome last night in Chile, I was there, it was a great show. I really enjoyed “The Messenger”, it sounded beautiful, and the “burning in the skies” chorus in “bleed it out” was really cool, but I thought you were going to play it too last night. I hope you enjoyed Chile, and come back soon!

  41. milasouza11 on October 10, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    YOU MAKE MY LIFE BETTER!
