DQ clearly a photo collage, they have to be in the same room just strewn around

It seems unlikely this hasn’t been done here in the last 20 years but I couldn’t find it searching for “band photo”

I feel like the Joshua Tree photoshoot really codified this

I knew there was one in the desert like that, but couldn't dredge it up.

Black clothes and glum faces are recommended.

Oozing sobriety is optional, but recommended.

Anton Corbijn's into this, based on the U2/Metallica ones ^^.

You can almost predict what bands are going to do this.

Good one! I kind of associate this with a particular breed of pompous and self-important rock bands, usually British.

I surmise this is very much the photographer thinking, "how can we make these dullards look a little more exciting?"

Brian Griffin's cover photos for the first two Echo and the Bunnymen albums are kind of a more artfully done version of this kind of thing?

Some of these made me laugh out loud well done everyone. While a tight group photo where everyone’s looking at something different is good, the best ones are where everyone is spaced out more, ideally on different depth planes

is this a big thing in christian rock? I don't know much about christian rock, just remember the episode of South Park with this album cover:
