Van Halen, ‘1984’ – Cute Babies on Album Covers
Even hard rockers Van Halen have a soft spot... sort of. Their '1984' album features an angelic infant on the album cover. Did we mention that he appears to be stealing cigarettes? We have graphic artist Margo Nahas to thank for this classic cover, and she's quick to point out that the kid was holding candy cigarettes.
The album peaked at No.2 for five straight weeks and features the genre-defining tracks 'Jump,' 'Panama,' 'Hot for Teacher,' and 'I'll Wait.'
Even to this day '1984' remains one of Van Halen's most popular albums in sales -- selling 12 million in the US alone. It was also the last full Halen album to feature frontman David Lee Roth for almost 30 years.
