Between 2002 and 2003, Banksy created four different album covers for the Bad Meaning Good music compilations. These were compilations of tracks chosen by different artists and recorded on CD or vinyl. The tracks range from electronic and hip hop to jazz, rock, funk and reggae.

For the cover of Bad Meaning Good Volume 1 from 2002 – with tracks selected by Skitz – Banksy painted a large red ‘X’ in the background and stencilled a monochromatic machine gun on top of it. The cover of Bad Meaning Good Volume 2, also from 2002, with tracks chosen by Roots Manuva, shows a grey ‘X’ and a black and white stencilled military vehicle.

The cover of Bad Meaning Good Volume 3 from 2003, selected by Peanut Butter Wolf, displays a blue ‘X’ with a stencilled police car, while Bad Meaning Good Volume 4, also released in 2003, with a selection of tracks by Scratch Perverts, shows a red ‘X’ and a CCTV camera and three crows seemingly tampering with it.
