/r/FakeAlbumCovers is a community for sharing, discussing, and creating fake album covers.
- This subreddit is for fake album covers only. Genuine album covers will be removed.
- All album covers must be square.
- Please include the artist name and then the album name in the title.
- Please add the appropriate link flair to your submission where applicable. (You can find a guide to link flairs in the Wiki.)
- Zero effort submissions/submissions that do not resemble an album cover will be removed.
- Please give credit where it is due if you are crossposting or reposting from another subreddit by linking to the original post in the comments.
Unsure of how to start?
Here's the basic formula for a Random Album Art Cover...
Random Album Cover Formula
- Go to Wikipedia and click "Random Article". The title of that article is your band name.
- Go to Wikiquote and click "Random Article". Pick any part of the last quote as your album title.
- Go to Flickr's "Last 7 Days" page. The 5th image is your album art.
- Compile an album cover using all the selected information with the image processor of your choice.
- Please link to the original photo you used in the comments to give credit to the photographer and remember to tag your submission with the Formula link flair after posting. We also encourage you to leave a comment with what Wikipedia article you came up with and what quote you found.
