pop-cultural images that bum you out when you see them

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

what are the images that just make you go Ahh Dammit when you see them, because you hate them, and they are gross and weird.

one of mine is the cover of Shock Treatment (1981)

I of course get a similar sensation from seeing the classic Gentle Giant album cover

I feel like this would probably find some kind of resurgent wave in 2018, and it's obviously self-consciously camp, but nevertheless The Saga of Baby Divine will never not be a cringeworthy thing I occasionally remember

there's this ad for a chain of toner ink cartridge refilling stores featuring a fish-eye lens view of a middle-aged man biting his fingers in stress over his mounting toner ink bills that has permeated my memory and fills me with total dread and i'm sad I can't find it anywhere online

The Gentle Giant cover is repulsive of course but it's so similar to like early tabletop RPG art that I also find it comforting in a way.
