The Archies - Everything's Archie (1969)

I love the implication that the Archies are so collectively braindead that they have to wear their own shirts to remember what band they're in. The baby-bird like open maw of the brunette girl in the foreground definitely lends credence to this theory since I get the feeling she forgets how to tie her own shoes on a regular basis.

The best part of the album cover is definitely the bored, irritated man up front. His rolled eyes and very stiff pose indicate that he doesn't really want to be in the group responsible for "Sugar, Sugar," he doesn't want to dance around like an idiot, and he sure as hell isn't having any fun. He just wants to leave. "Are we done yet?" he's saying with gritted teeth while he very haltingly pretends to dance for the sake of the cameraman, "Can we get out of here? Come on, damn it, I have more important things to do."

At least the blonde in the back is pretty cute and has a nice outfit.
