There's even a webcam live feed of the attraction. Another notable fact: It's the first Beatles cover that doesn't feature the band's name or album title.
This iconic Andy Warhol banana picture with "peel slowly and see" instructions is a great cover on its own, but the original version actually included a peel-off sticker revealing a flesh-colored banana beneath.

Young Thug, 'Jeffery' Few rappers played more convincingly or compellingly with either identity or gender over the course of the s as Young Thug. So no surprise that his best-remembered album cover was this Garfield Lamond-photographed shot of a face-covered Thug in a long, flowing dress designed by Alessandro Trincone for his Jeffery project -- an image that would've been unthinkable in hip-hop decades earlier, and unforgettable for decades after.
Janet Jackson, 'Rhythm Nation ' Eschewing a friendly, fun image more conducive to '80s pop chart success, Janet Jackson adopted a militaristic tone for her instantly iconic black-and-white Rhythm Nation cover art.
Cardi B, Invasion of Privacy Brash, bold, badass and whatever other "B" words generally applied to Cardi B's rise to prominence in also worked for the cover of her debut LP, Invasion of Privacy. Captured by photographer Jora Frantzis, Cardi sneers in cat-eyes sunglasses, mustard-blonde hair and a checkered long-sleeve coat -- dazzling and unignorable, just as the accompanying album would soon prove to be on the Billboard charts.
Whitney Houston, 'Whitney Houston' Although he's best worst? Nicki Minaj, 'The Pinkprint' Nicki Minaj has always embraced her inner weirdo, extending her limbs on the cover of her debut album Pink Friday and splashing her face with paint for its sequel. No Doubt, 'Tragic Kingdom' In the wake of Seattle grunge and rise of rap, No Doubt arrived in the mainstream crosshairs with the ska-inflected Tragic Kingdoman album equal parts sheen and punk-lite ferocity.
Johnny Cash, 'American IV: The Man Comes Around' This black-and-white cover is made all the more heartbreaking given that this was Cash's final album before he died less than a year after its release. Ariana Grande, Sweetener It wouldn't be too much of an exaggeration to say that Ariana Grande's entire world got turned upside down in the three years in between 's Dangerous Woman and its follow-up.
Joni Mitchell, 'Hejira' Joni Mitchell's streak of classics continued with the folk-jazz album Hejirawhich boasted her best artwork. Metallica, 'Master of Puppets' Unlike metal bands concerned with Satan and the occult, Metallica commented on real-life evil with their masterful Master of Puppets album cover.
The Slits, 'Cut' Though technically, yes, it's an image of three topless women caked in mud, there's nothing remotely sexualized about this album cover. Lizzo, Cuz I Love You If anyone found Lizzo to be a disruptive presence in the music mainstream as a plus-sized woman of color, she made it extremely clear with the Cuz I Love You cover that she wasn't about to let that deter her one bit.
Bruce Springsteen, 'Born in the U. Janis Joplin, 'Pearl' Janis Joplin's final album, released after her death at age 27, features one of the era's most iconic images.
David Bowie, 'Aladdin Sane' While this isn't the album that introduced the world to Bowie's space-man alter ego, when music fans think of Ziggy Stardust, this is the image they see. Drake, If You're Reading This It's Too Late The title of Drake's "mixtape" certainly proved apt, as the unexpected release kicked off one of his most commercially dominant years of the s, cementing him as a superstar on the level of any other contemporary top 40 idol.
But its minimalist cover art was similarly impactful, becoming one of the first such images to become a Twitter phenomenon in its own right, as fans substituted their own scrawled messages into its format and made it an unmissable mid-'10s music meme. Judas Priest, 'British Steel' One of metal's most iconic album covers, Judas Priest's British Steel -- depicting a hand emerging from studded leather holding a razor blade -- is also one of its most fascinating.
Santana, 'Abraxas' Taken from a Mati Klarwein painting he also did the cover for Miles Davis' Bitches Brewthe cover for Santana's Abraxas album is a gorgeously surreal psychedelic feast for the eyes. The Clash, 'London Calling' The London Calling cover simultaneously pays tribute to Elvis Presley while also blowing up his version of rock n' roll.
Blink, 'Enema of the State' For the cover of their mainstream breakthrough LP, Blink enlisted adult actress Janine Lindemulder to put a highly suggestive -- and literal -- spin on the album title. The image is of a celebratory photo of dozens of mostly shirtless black men rejoicing in front of the White House -- with a white judge, gavel in hand, lying motionless at the bottom of the photograph. Confrontational, exciting, joyful, disturbing and timely, it was as provocative and evocative a cover as one of the best rap albums of the last decade could ask for.
Hole, 'Live Through This' The most iconic grunge album cover after Nirvana's NevermindHole's Live Through This depicts a sobbing beauty queen with mascara running down her face.
The Beatles, 'Sgt. Elvis Presley, 'Elvis Presley' Elvis knew what a killer combo green and neon pink were some 20 years before the Clash copped the cover style for London Calling. Nirvana, 'Nevermind' One of the most recognizable album covers of all time features an underwater naked baby reaching for a dollar bill on a string. Led Zeppelin, 'Led Zeppelin' Somehow the image of a burning airship erupting into flames just moments before plummeting to the ground and claiming dozens of lives is the perfect visual introduction to Led Zeppelin's debut masterpiece.
The defining image of the German electronic pioneers - this perfectly captures the essence of Kraftwerk. Inspired by the s Modernist movement, particularly El Lissitzky, the strict red and black colour scheme, arrangement of the band members in quasi-robotic fashion and translation of the title into various languages all adds up to a seriously cool album cover.
Sehr guht, sehr cool. All five of the covers for LP Cash's last era of recordings, the American series are fantastic, with the big, simple typeface utilising the strength of the legend's name.
However, the coolest is for IV: The Man Comes Around, as it juxtaposes that strength with the visible weakness of the Man In Black himself: nearing death and reflecting on his life he looks downward and prepares to fade to black himself. Brian Cannon, as head designer at Microdot, was responsible for a series of LP designs over the course of Oasis' first three albums, never dropping below sheer brilliance.
For a band that used the musical primary colours of drums, bass, guitar and vocals and chords that any learner could play, their artwork was allowed to be more avant-garde, with the covers of Wonderwall and Live Forever, in particular being daringly stark but hugely effective. The cover for Definitely Maybe was an instant classic with various pieces of symbolism artfully placed in shot and the new five coolest guys on the planet poised to take over for the next decade.
A cover where less is more, and is all the cooler for it. A casual photograph of Dylan with his then-muse Suze Rotolo, taken in the West Village, New York City, it was unusual at the time for being unstaged and unposed. Critic Janet Maslin described it perfectly as "a photograph that inspired countless young men to hunch their shoulders, look distant, and let the girl do the clinging". Grace Jones has created a series of truly incredible cover images in her career, but this one just about takes it for us.
Created by her then-partner Jean-Paul Goude, the arabesque is, in fact, a montage of separate images. Such is the incredible power, beauty and, well, Grace of Jones' body that it's eminently believable that it is a real body position - but it is in fact anatomically impossible. Seriously cool. The quintessential American image for the quintessential American artist, the cover for Born in the USA did exactly what it said on the tin.
The American flag as the backdrop and the uniform of blue jeans, white shirt and red cap of the American blue-collar worker which The Boss celebrated in his lyrics. Shots were taken of Springsteen facing the camera but this one made the cut; Springsteen remarking, "The picture of my ass looked better than the picture of my face, so that's what went on the cover".
The photo, taken by Francis Wolff, certainly captures the sax legend in a pensive, thoughtful and, well, blue mood; basically looking like the super-cool legend he was. No gallery of cool album covers would be complete without an appearance from Eddie, Iron Maiden's mascot and constant companion.
Everything Riggs has ever done has been incredible, but we've opted for Number of the The Times - Pop Goes Art! (Vinyl. Originally the cover was designed for a single called Purgatory so Riggs opted for a heaven and hell design, which the band liked so much that they used it for the album.
Amazingly, the call for the artwork came on a Friday and Riggs submitted it the following Monday in time for their deadline - he now claims "I wish I had more time to paint it, I could have done a better job", but it still looks pretty great to us.
Artist: N. The cover to their landmark album perfectly encapsulated what they were about, the group encircling the listener, as you stare down the barrel of a gun held by Eazy-E. The idyllic blue Californian sky provides the unlikely backdrop - all may have seemed sunny, but trouble was brewing in Compton. Power, Corruption and Lies was the 'keystone', with the decoder for the colour-based code found in the top-right corner, representing the title and band name, being found on the back cover of the album.
The same code then appeared on the iconic floppy-disc cover for Blue Monday and also Confusion. The cover is a reproduction of the painting "A Basket of Roses" by French artist Henri Fantin-Latour with Saville explaining that they "suggested the means by which power, corruption and lies infiltrate our lives. They're seductive. A very naughty baby angel, with a mischievous look and cig in hand. Proof that Rock 'n' roll can corrupt anyone or anything. A record of ferocious power, attitude and force and, truly, a cover to match, a metallic howl of anger addressing the Jilted Generation which Prodigy so successfully reached.
A brilliant and iconic cover. The hair alone weighed 10 kilos - sometimes one has to literally suffer for their art. This iconic artwork was created by John Squire, a man hugely influenced by influential abstract expressionist painter Jackson Pollock so much so that he was also referenced in the lyrics to earlier song Going Down. Entitled Bye, Bye Badman also the name of a song on the albumthe piece referred to the May Parisian Riots - hence the coloured daubings of the French tricolore on the left the lemons were a nod to the fact that they could be used as an antidote to tear gas.
An image which has adorned countless students' bedroom walls, and is still amazingly cool today. But this superb cover image captures the man behind the music simply, and starkly.
Unbelievably cool. One of the very first album covers to think outside the box - literally - this record was originally released on vinyl in a giant tobacco tin, modelled on the Victorian-style containers such as Ogdens' Nut-Brown Flake, a brand of tobacco that had been produced in Liverpool since The tin opened to reveal the record along with a poster consisting of five interconnected paper circles, each one bearing the image of a band member.
One Direction eat your heart out. Lemon Jelly's second album was described in some quarters as an electronica answer to Pink Floyd The Times - Pop Goes Art! (Vinyl it wasn't just musically. The illustrated cover looked agrarian and peaceful at first glance, but on closer inspection revealed trees shaped like spikes, arranged in a pattern evocative of barbed wire. Mark Farrow has been the Pets' image man for most of their long career, with an incredible body of striking work to complement their carefully cultivated image and style.
We've opted for the cover of Introspective as the coolest of them all. Whereas the art for Please and Actually was stark minimalism, on Introspective he - ironically, given the title - opted for a bold and attention-grabbing set of columns, which looked stunning in its original 12 inch form. Justice were the coolest French duo since Daft Punk when they emerged in the mids, and their adoption of the cross as their symbol was appropriate, given the quasi-religious following they obtained as they built through the underground.
C'est cool, c'est Justice. The cover was a perfect representation of the band's sound: an eclectic and colourful cut LP paste collage of various influences thrown together but somehow creating something brilliant, exciting and cool. Box set editions of the record took the concept further, with each track on its own three-inch CD inside a foil blister pack. Special instructions for use were included, with the question "What is Spiritualized used for?
So, so cool. Only Frank Zappa would utilise a 'droodle' a combination of doodle, drawing and riddle - a form of humorous cartoon popular in the s and s - as both the artwork and title of an album, but then Zappa never really was one for following the rules; after all, this was a man who named two of his children Moon Unit and Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen.
