Kittens Take Over Classic Rock Album Covers
Some of the most iconic classic rock album covers of all time have been invaded by kittens, with the Beatles, David Bowie and even the masked marvels of Kiss all being replaced by our furry friends in the pictures below. Check them all out and let us know which artwork benefits the most from the presence of these furry felines.
It’s said that cats have nine lives, and David Bowie has probably gone through almost that many alter-egos during his career, so one could probably do a whole series based on just his album covers. ‘Diamond Dogs,’ despite the clash of species, would seem like a natural follow-up.
OK, this one’s pretty straight-ahead, but as the Police proved on their own version of this artwork, you don’t need much when you’ve got the right attitude.
Too many people tend to over-humanize their pets, attributing emotions to actions and facial expressions that are in reality 90% food related. Still, it’s hard not to be impressed with how well each of these four cats seems to be channeling the inner spirit of their respective Fab Four members.
You know, if they really wanted to impress us, instead of using photoshop they should have actually put the makeup on the cats. We would pay pay-per-view level money to watch that go down.
‘I Love Rock N’ Roll’
Now, we know that cat probably weighs 15 pounds and stands eight inches off the ground. Still, if anything stares at us like that in real life, we are backing the heck down.
There’s an easy joke to be made here about the original version of the album cover already containing more than it’s fair share of…. well, you get the point. Luckily for you, we’re FAR too classy for that.
‘Freedom of Choice’
No, Devo aren’t strictly classic rock, but you will hear ‘Whip It’ on the airwaves from time to time, and they actually do a great version of the Rolling Stones’‘Satisfaction.’ Besides, how are you gonna say “no” to five kittens with collapsible cups on their heads?
As with the Kiss cover above, this is a photo that could never have been replicated without computers, because there is no cat in the world that would calmly pose underwater.
