The 25 Best Punk Album Covers of All Time

17. Los Angeles

Artist: X

Year released: 1980

Part of the punk tradition has to do with disrupting well-established symbols. X took a well-established image—a burning cross—and simply turned it sideways, creating something haunting, referential, and fantastically deconstructive. Simple, stark, and terrifying, Los Angeles spoke volumes with very little design.
