Punk! With all the hubbub over the recent show at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, which focuses more on punk fashions, it’s easy to forget there was actually artwork on punk rock record releases. We’ve collected the 25 best here, to reinvigorate the spirit of imaging in this unmistakable form. We’ve left out some of the more arguably classic album covers of all time—The Velvet Underground and Nico and Beggar’s Banquet, among others—for the notion that they may not be true punk enough. Hopefully, this will act as an intermediary between the mosh pit and the Met.
