Metallica 72 Seasons Album Cover Parodies refers to a series of parody versions of the album cover for the metal band Metallica's LP titled 72 Seasons. The meme trend gained virality on Twitter and iFunny after the group launched a logo generator for the cover in mid-April 2023 shortly after its release.
On April 13th, 2023, American heavy metal rock band Metallica released a name generator for the cover art of their eleventh album 72 Seasons, planned for release the following day. The tool generated text in Metallica's signature lettering and placed it on the cover art of the album, which also depicts a burnt crib, guitar and other items placed over a yellow background (shown below).
