Easter horrors: good and bad album covers with rabbits and bunnies


Well, it’s that time of year again, so why not celebrate Easter with some truly horrific album covers featuring rabbits and/or bunnies?

I did include a few awesome bands and album covers, but it’s mostly the weird, warped and wretched covers that made this eggxactly what I was going for. So, hop on board and follow me down the bunny trail…to hell!

1.) Rabbit-Too Much Rock ‘n’ Roll

I cheated here. No bunnies, but these rabbits are downright terrifying.

2.) Lew Qualding & the Sentimental Reeds-That Old Sax Magic

that-old-sax-magic-lew-quadling

Could this rabbit reproduce like normal while playing That Old Sax Magic for his wife? It looks like he is praying for the sweet release of death rather than hear this album…

3.) Sparks-Hello Young Lovers

I happen to think Sparks are demented genius and this cover proves it.

4.) Schnuffle-Winterwunderland

schnuffel_-_winterwunderland_album_cover

Awe, isn’t Schnuffel cute? This German creeper was created in the late 2000’s to horrify little kids in their lederhosen and wet themselves. What does Schnuffel mean you ask? Snuggle. I see a bear with a good lawsuit in his paws…

5.) Rush-Presto

rush-presto-music-album_big

Best band ever, and one of the coolest album covers ever by Hugh Syme. Amusing, and beautifully photographed in black and white. On this tour, there were giant bunnies on each side of the stage. That’s rock and roll dammit.

6.) various artists-25 Cancoes Preferidas

Criminal charges were filed shortly after this cover shoot. This rabbit is getting a taste of carrots in prison…

7.) Nathan Maxwell & The Original Bunny Gang-Nathan Maxwell & The Original Bunny Gang

61nmbikynil-_sl500_aa300_

Reggae side-project from the guitarist in Flogging Molly. Although this looks like 70’s porn…

8.) The Bunny And The Bear-If You Don’t Have Anything Nice To Say…

the-bunny-the-bear-cover-promo-pic

Oh, I have plenty to say and none of it’s nice. Was this designed by an inbred bunny? See what 2 weeks of Art in Community College can do for you?

9.) Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers-Jive Bunny: The Album

81ly7acmwil-_sx355_

Frighteningly, a lot of people bought this novelty piece of bunny poop. Remember “Swing the Mood” in 1989? That atrocity went to #1 in the UK and around the world and #11 in the US. All who bought this have felt shame for years…

10.) Swans-White Light From The Mouth Of Infinity

image-php_id_218_size_1024_g_profile_virtuallabel-audiosalad_grande

Pretentious, AND a strangely placed carrot on this mopey Emo bunny.

11.) Thumper-Another Day

r-5786477-1402629451-1441-jpeg

This bunny is gonna kick some ass. Sadly, the album does not.

12.) Eric Gale-Multiplication

Why are bunnies so typecast? They do more than just eat and have sex all day. Wait, that actually sounds like a damn good life…

13.) Helloween-Rabbit Don’t Come Easy

51pe8o0gbfl

German Metal legends Helloween have always had a warped sense of humor and this title and cover rock. Look at this poor buck-toothed rabbit wondering what he did wrong to get here. Why does the magician have a robot hand? Fuck it-never mind.

14.) Bunny And The Bear-Food Chain

This is one Easter dinner I would not attend. Not that a meal of a sacrificed teddy bear and a house of hellish nightmares doesn’t sound fun.

15.) Masters Of Reality-Sunrise On The Sufferbus

41fz2parttl

Although I doubt this bunny is actually that good on a bicycle, I admire his moxie. Ride, rabbit, ride!

16.) Holograf-Stai In Pola Mea

r-3570688-1351586092-3499-jpeg

You’ve now arrived at the worst (or best) Easter party ever. The idea that these bunnies had to touch the junk of the members of Holgraf is a hare-raising one indeed. (Yeah, I said it!)

17.) Kool & The Gang-Kool & The Gang

r-1733842-1240071039-jpeg

You know, maybe life as a bunny ain’t so bad. Hop to it, my furry friend and do what you do best-reproduce!

18.) Sack Trick-(Music From) The Mystery Rabbits

r-1819730-1245505245-jpeg

I feel so sorry for these rabbits. Their parents did not raise them to end up like this. And what the fuck is a Sack Trick? (Please don’t answer that).

19.) Bambix-The Story Tailor

r-4089404-1368048680-9903-jpeg

OK, this one is pretty cool actually. All this rabbit needs is a carrot pipe and a bunny wench by his side. Who the hell are Bambix? Who cares???

20.) Residents-The Bunny Boy

r-1451109-1429363509-8822-jpeg

If you know the Residents, you know they are bizarre and rather an acquired taste. This was also a concept album about Bunny Boy making secret videos on You Tube searching for his brother Harvey and asking fans to help find him. Or something like that. Not enough bong hits could really explain this.

21.) Rabbit Rumba-Primera Antologia De La Rumba

Translation: Giant-ass Spanish rabbit will eat human flesh for lunch. And do the rumba while he’s at it.

22.) Shakalabbits-Rabbits, Rabbits All The Way 1

32891-andltahrefhttpwwwjpo-rar3

Don’t know about the bunny in the blender, but the rest of these guys are gonna have a damn good time. Shrooms, fruit and some female melons? Sounds like a most sinful Easter delight. Peter’s cottontail will be a hoppin’ down the booby trail!

23.) Natalia Kills-Rabbit Hole

natalia_kills___rabbit_hole_by_flamboyantdesigns-d7ycaod

Yeah, I’m guessin’ ‘ol Natalia has had her rabbit hole filled with some carrots many a time.

24.) Echo & Bunnymen-Pictures On My Wall (single)

echothebunnymen-thepicturesonmywall-7_record-47281

One of the greatest bands ever. I’m cheating and including a single here. This was the band’s very first release way back in 1979 and started an amazing career still going strong. Long live the Bunnymen!

25.) Lil’ Richard & His All-Stars-Happy Easter

Li’l Richard and his (very) lil’ richard violated every one of these poor bunnies. Easter was never the same again.

About chudbeagle

My name is Pete Braidis and I'm in Haddon Heights, New Jersey and my goal is to point out how bad so many album and book covers are as well as review classic (usually awful) creature/monster flicks. I also have a book due out in June 2016 dedicated to guitar players I feel have never gotten their due. I interviewed 50 players from around the world and it took nearly 2 years to complete. It's called Unstrung Heroes: Fifty Guitar Players You Should Know and here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/Unstrung-Heroes-Guitar-Greats-Should/dp/0764350889/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1454387582&sr=1-2&keywords=unstrung+heroes Sometimes, I'll actually do something normal like a band history with album reviews but I try to do the funny stuff because it's my job to make anyone that bothered coming on here to laugh.
