Image Parodies -> Album Covers -> F -> Frank Zappa - Sheik Yerbouti

Albums aren't only known for their artwork, they can also be well known for an iconic piece of artwork that adorns the cover. Here at amIright, we're not content with parodying just the music and lyrics of songs, we need the whole package! So we've begun replacing the artwork on the various artist summary pages with new album covers submitted by visitors to the site.

The first image on the page is for Frank Zappa - Sheik Yerbouti, followed by the original. Also check out the most recent parody covers submitted to the site.

Album Cover Parody

Comments: Ayatollah A**ahollah - sensored for younger visitors. This is Ayatollah Ali Khamenei - the real leader of Iran. Inspired by Homer Simpson, "it works for any Ayatollah". I love the original cover, though. Submitted by: Porkbeard

Ehh.... It was already a parody, not much you can do to this cover.

The original was a humorous play on words, but not actually a parody. True, there was not a whole lot to do with this, just changing the picture and the text. It is a stab at the supreme leader of Iran to remind people that Ahmadinejad is only a puppet of the Ayatollah that has no real power. Just because Kohmeini died dosn't mean there isn't an Ayatollah in charge; we should direct ridicule toward the REAL enemy...

If the parody was captioned "Abu Moon Unit Abu Dweezil Abu Ahmet Emuukha Rodan Abu Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen Frank Zappa ibin Francis al-Baltimore" with a picture of the Ayatollah it might possibly be funny as a parody of a parody. As it is though, the image, although well-rendered graphically, is semantically meaningless in relation to the original--which is a masterpiece. BTW Zappa's father, Francis Zappa, born in Partinico, Sicily was of Greek-Arab descent.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
