17 Greatest Animated Classic Rock Album Covers
Who wouldn’t like to see their favorite classic rock album covers leap to life? That’s precisely what you’ll find here as we count down the 17 Greatest Animated Classic Rock Album Covers.
That eye peeping through the fence – we’ve always assumed it was Angus Young – on AC/DC‘s 1985 album Fly on the Wall actually blinks. (The fly buzzes a bit, too.) There’s more. Scroll down, and you’ll find the Beatles leaping over a wall, one by one, on the cover of their “Twist and Shout” single. The featured image from Alice Cooper‘s 1987 LP Raise Your First and Yell does just that, too.
Elsewhere, you can feel the paranoia surrunding King Crimson‘s 21st Century Schizoid Man on the cover of their seminal prog classic, In the Court of the Crimson King. Paul Stanley winks, Ace Frehley shoots lasers out of his eyes and Gene Simmons – what else? — unfurls his tongue in an animation of Kiss‘ 1976 album Rock and Roll Over.
Among the other highlights? The lone traveler from the cover of Pink Floyd‘s The Endless River, gliding across a current of clouds. The late, great B.B. King twangs Lucille once more on his 1974 album Friends. And let’s just say Iron Maiden‘s covers are now far creepier than you remembered.
