Image Parodies -> Album Covers -> V -> Van Halen - 1984

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 Van Halen - 1984, followed by the original. Also check out the most recent parody covers submitted to the site.

There's an interesting story behind that cover...

[copied from Wikipedia]
The iconic cover was created by graphic artist Margo Nahas. It was not specifically commissioned; Nahas had been asked to create a cover that featured four chrome women dancing, but declined. Her husband brought her portfolio to the band anyway, and from that material they chose the painting of a putti stealing cigarettes that was ultimately used. The model was Carter Helm, who was the child of one of Nahas' best friends, whom she photographed holding a candy cigarette.

Indeed, if you look at the carton carefully, you can see those are King brand cigarettes: available in just about any candy store near you.
