'Battle of the Album Covers'

Posted on

Whether or not you fondly remember such quaint musical artifacts as album covers, do keep watching this ”Battle of the Album Covers” video, and you’ll find something new every time. The gist of it, as far as I can tell, is that the rock and roll world includes, but is not limited to:

  • blood
  • fire
  • sex
  • severed limbs
  • lasers

My favorite part used to be the Andy Warhol banana in the jeans, but that was so half an hour ago. Now I’m all about the series of screams made by Phil Collins, Madonna, Bob Seger, etc. all in a row. It’s like someone just uttered the magic word on Pee-wee’s Playhouse, if the magic word was ”ticking bomb hurled against The Wall.” Maybe it was!
