Your First Band and Album Cover

What would your own album look like if you were in a band? Follow the directions below and find out...

Here are the rules:

1 - Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random”
or click
The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to Quotations Page and select "random quotations"
or click
The last four or five words of the very last quote on the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to Flickr and click on "explore the last seven days"
or click
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together.


And here's the result!

And now, for the credits...

I snagged this idea from Kelvin and wasn't going to actually post it, but when my band name popped up Scummy Man, I said what the hell.

Here's the Wikipedia link to Scummy Man, just to prove I didn't make that up.

The quote is from Ed Norton, which was almost enough for me to scrap the project, but I went with it.

The image is entitled Raspberry Splash #2, by someone named Zaukher and belongs to him. I make no claims of ownership. It was actually the second picture that came up for me, but I wasn't able to copy the third picture, so I used this one instead. I used Photoshop to trim it down to Album/CD size and I think it worked out just fine.


  1. I think this meme lays bare exactly how easy a job designers have. Every one I've seen so far has been a winner.

    This one has the look of some kind of Strokes-like band, I think.

  2. I don't know. It's all stolen material after all.

    Might be harder to pull off working from scratch.
