Music Trivia -> Actual Album Cover Parodies -> Index Z

Some albums are not just iconic, but their cover artwork is as well. Plenty of groups have released album covers with homages to more famous album covers. Sources for parody covers tend to be parody albums based on a performer (like Weird Al spoofing Nirvana), tribute albums, and sometimes the rip off is unintentional (designers with a limited design vocabulary). In some cases like the Clash's "London Calling", the copy becomes copied over time to the point where I'm sure some people aren't even aware of the original anymore.

Albums are arranged by the name of the original album that was parodied. If you want to make a parody cover of your own, I recommend checking out amIright's Visitor Created Album Covers section. Also check out the list of the most parodied album covers.
