Best/worst dubstep artwork

debate, appreciation, interviews, reviews (events or releases), videos, radio shows

I think Southside Dubstars should get a shout for worst design / artwork. Here is a good example:

This is probably the worst in my entire record collection though:

Speaking of Wordart... not dubstep but this is the worst artwork of all time IMO (plus it's UK garage so close enough to dubstep lol):

No wonder the Wheel & Deal and Disfigured Dubz have similarly horrible artwork, they're both done by N-Type. :6:
