The Greatest Album Art Of All Time

40. Metallica - Metallica (The Black Album) (1991)
It's either brilliant or ridiculous. The Gadsden flag snake on the right hand side is a reference to the ‘Don't Tread On Me' slogan that Metallica utilised on the song of the same name and there's a Metallica logo on the left. Not much else. The band were not oblivious to the Spinal Tap “how much blacker could this be” Smell The Glove comparisons and in their 1992 documentary A Year And A Half In The Life Of Metallica the two bands met and discussed the similarities between album covers.
