The 25 Best Punk Album Covers of All Time

6. Unkown Pleasures

Artist: Joy Division

Year released: 1979

This album might be better classified as post-punk, but its abutment to the punk movement, as well as the two-tone design by Peter Saville, cannot go without mentioning. Even casual music fans recognize these incredibly iconic lines, a data visualization of energy emitted from the first pulsar studied by scientists. The Unknown Pleasures cover has inspired as much fan fervor as it has parody.
