For those of you looking to find artwork from a certain show, there are many ways to go about finding the artwork you are looking for.

1.) You could begin at the BootlegCoverArt Gallery where you can find the letter that corresponds with the band that you are searching for. Once clicking the letter category, browse the page(s) until you find the band and the cover art you are looking for.

2.) Secondly, you can use the Search function. The search function is by far the easiest way to find a certain cover.

Once on that page, you can enter into the search area many things.
You can enter the...

  • Band Name
  • Date (must be formatted like YYYY MM DD)
  • Artwork Creator's Name
  • City Name
  • State Abbreviations
  • Country Name
  • Cover Type (CD, DVD, Blu-ray, Menu)

Enter whatever you want in the "Search the file collection" field and click the "Search" button and out pop your results. Just that easy :)

Please note that before making a cover request, we ask that you check out the Gallery first to make sure covers have not been created already.

Specific Search Results

The easiest way to find cover artwork is by searching for the date in YYYY MM DD format. This can sometimes still bring a large list of results, and you may want to narrow your search down even further.

Below are some examples of code you can add to obtain more specific results. YYYY MM DD represents a generic date.

Band Name YYYY MM DD
This search outputs results for both audio and video covers for a specific band.

Band Name YYYY MM DD CD
This search outputs results for CD covers for a specific band.

Band Name YYYY MM DD DVD
This search outputs results for DVD covers for a specific band.

Band Name YYYY MM DD Blu-ray
This search outputs results for Blu-ray Disc covers for a specific band.

Band Name YYYY MM DD Menu
This search outputs results for DVD and/or Blu-ray Disc menus for a specific band.
