Duran Duran's 10th studio album Pop Trash showcases a Duran Duran that is but a hollow shell of the new wave band that enjoyed pop successes in the early 1980s. Released in 2000, the long-player features the single "Someone Else Not Me" and was the last studio album to feature the trio of Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes and guitarist Warren Cuccurullo. John Taylor was also not in the band at this point.

The album artwork, created by Andrew Day, features a rhinestone-encrusted car that belonged to Liberace.

Not long after release, the original Duran Duran line-up reunited and started working on what would become the Astronaut album.

"The cover for Pop Trash did feature the Excalibur car which Liberace used once for a show at Radio City Music Hall in New York. We jumped through numerous legal hoops for the Pop Trash artwork, including permission to use Elvis Presley's eyes for the 'Hallucinating Elvis' page. The decision to use Liberace's car came from sitting around the kitchen table at Nick's house with Simon and Warren. There were other cover ideas on the table, one of which was much liked, but was too close to Beck's 'Midnight Vultures'. In the end, the shot of Liberace's Rhinestone-encrusted roadster seemed to be the perfect vehicle to encapsulate the concept of the album." — Andrew Day, album art director

Originally issued on Hollywood Records, Pop Trash was out of print for decades until BMG reissued it on CD in 2022. There was no vinyl reissue at that time, but that is now corrected with the label offering a 2LP black vinyl edition.
