The 10 Oddest Cars on Album Covers

6. Shriner Cars

Artist: Dead Kennedys
Album: Frankenchrist

Released in 1985, the Dead Kennedys' Frankenchrist drew unwelcome attention for a poster depicting penises and vulvas included with the original printing. Odd. Also odd, the decision to employ a bunch of Shriners riding their signature little cars in a parade on the album cover. The record doesn't even mention Freemasonry in the lyrics. The Shriners sued the Dead Kennedys (and Newsweek, from whom the band had purchased the photo) for invasion of privacy. Weird cars, weirder back story.
