The lightning-bolt eye makeup, the red mullet -- this is quintessential Bowie. Whatever Warhol created for the set was seemingly never used, but his concept of employing a working zipper on an album cover came to fruition on the cover of Sticky Fingers.
With photographs by Warhol focused on the bulging jeans of a still-unidentified male model and graphic design by Craig Braun, the set would earn a Grammy Award nomination for best album cover.
Disney's Mickey Mouse shirt parody four decades later only reaffirmed its legend. 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. How is the hand holding the blade without bleeding? Does this cover capture the moment just before the blood bursts out and covers the blade?
While many metal bands would compete to out-gross each other throughout the rest of the '80s, this simple, menacing image outlives them all. 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. Inspired by the Biblical story of the Annunciation, this painting gives us a naked, black Virgin Mary and a red angel with a conga between her legs. One of the priestesses on the back cover also appears on the back cover of his Bitches Brew art.
The London Calling cover simultaneously pays tribute LP) Elvis Presley while also blowing up his version of rock n' roll.

The desperation on the woman's face reveals the tragic self-doubt fueling the beauty industry, but she's not made to look entirely ridiculous -- we're still forced to view her as a human instead of a broad parody of an archetype.
This is the rare satiric album cover that still manages to Count Every Star - Various - The Roots Of RockN Roll (Vinyl empathetic. Where to begin with this album cover? The image features the Beatles, in their Sgt. While listeners try to discern the secret meaning of LP) high-minded music, they can also try to identify the plus faces on Count Every Star - Various - The Roots Of RockN Roll (Vinyl crowded cover.
Elvis knew what a killer combo green and neon pink were some 20 years before the Clash copped the cover style for London Calling.
