Last Friday, Kanye West released his eighth studio album, Ye, after a listening party at a Wyoming ranch that has since banned rappers. You can stream the album here or read our reviews here and here.

Since the album’s release, that cover has spawned a meme, which only grew in popularity after Kanye tweeted a link to “Yenerator”, a widget for generating joke titles for the album. Between Yenerator and photoshop users on Twitter and Reddit, a bounty of new album covers have come online.

Some people theorized the album art was so slapdash because they already blew their budget on Daytona:

And others made slight adjustments:

Some of the suggested replacement covers referenced other memes, like Jimmy Barnes the singing Australian/Scottish cowboy from the music video for “Big Enough” or updated privacy policies.
