Unsure of how to start?

Here's the basic formula for the Random Album Art Cover:

  1. Go to Wikipedia and click "Random Article". The title of that article is your band name.
  2. Go to Wikiquote and click "Random Article". Pick any part of the last quote as your album title.
  3. Go to Flickr's "Last 7 Days" page. The 5th image is your album art.
  4. Compile an album cover using all the selected information with the image processor of your choice. (Note: use a fairly square canvas - album covers are usually square)

Submission Rules

  • We now accept direct uploads of images through Reddit! To use this, click the "Upload a File" button on the "Submit Link" page.
  • For external hosts, direct links to image preferred (suggested hosts: imgur, flickr)
  • Include the artist name and then the album name in the title.
  • We encourage you to leave a comment with what Wikipedia article you came up with, what quote you found, and what the original image was.
  • We allow all fake album covers, whether or not you followed the basic formula.

Every Sunday we will be featuring a new album cover (or covers) in the sidebar. Winners will be determined by the top post weekly, as determined by upvotes. Winners will receive link and user flair. All OC submissions are eligible to win, whether or not you used the basic formula.
