Creating Your Band's Album Cover: This was fun...

You can follow this process to create a band name and design the cover of their album as I did in the example above. It was a fun way to mess around in Facebook, and I shared it here as well. It's interesting how randomly generated images and phrases can be related in a meaningful way. Everything's connected?

1. Go to Wikipedia and hit random. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2. Go to and hit random. 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.” Third picture (no matter what it... is) will be your album cover.

4. Use photoshop or similar ( is a free online photo editor) to put it all together.

5. Post it with this text in the "caption."
