Play the album game:

1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random”
or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to "Random quotations"
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use photoshop or similar to put it all together.
(Two free programs that you can use are paint.net [http://www.getpaint.net] and the GIMP [http://www.gimp.net] )

Here is my entry:

Band-ClearPlay
Album-Does Small Things Badly, Too

We don't believe in putting our name or album titles on the cover. Look at the spine.

Zenidog's and both of Bmack's look and sound like real groups/albums. How did you get your tracklisting, Bryan?

For my tracklist I just repeated the step for bandnames until I found something that sounded to me like a final track on an album.

And apparently you like Football, from wikipedia:

Estadio Regional de Chinquihue is a multi-use stadium in Puerto Montt, Chile. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home stadium of Club de Deportes Puerto Montt. The stadium holds 11,300 people and was built in 1982.

File under: better late than never? The Guardian newspaper just got in on the action (http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/gallery/2009/mar/04/random-album-artwork?picture=344158357). It's either heartening or depressing that many of their user-generated examples are better than actual album covers.
