You didn't know anything about the band. You'd never heard a single note of their music, nor even heard what they sounded like. But that album cover sucked you in, and you plonked down your money for it.

I only did it once, as a comparatively wee laddie, with Great White's _Twice Shy_. I was hoping there'd be more pictures of whoever those legs were attached to. Instead, I saw these ugly, ugly guys. Sigh.

I know it's not metal but, 38 Special's, Wild Eyed Southern Boy's. You gotta love the airbrushed shot of the chick in the tight pink shorts - never mind the music. It's as close as I got to playboy being a middle school kid at the time. Yeah, I know, pretty sad.

Easy... Dio's Holy Diver. I've always wanted to do cover art myself, and this album was my introduction to Dio. I feel no shame! [img]http://axl.hardradio.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img] Metal art ROCKS!

A Band called Jailhouse. They had the right look. I gave them a shot. Not bad.

I bought Warlock's Triumph and Agony because of the cover. When I saw it I thought cool a metal chick singer - go white girl go!

1982, in the 7th grade science class, a guy brought Number of the Beast to school, and I absolutely loved the cover! Went out and got it that day, and they turned out to be a pretty darn good band too, if not my favorite.

Cryhavoc--Sweetbriers. Two chicks, with a thin fabric cover over their tops, but soaking wet, and no bras underneath. In other words, you could see everything.
