Various Artists - Golden Throats: The Great Celebrity Sing Off The *Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Various Artists - Golden Throats Vol. 2: More Celebrity Rock Oddities The *Rolling Stones - Their Satanic Majesties Request

Celebrity Golden Throats Vol 1-2 Cover Parodies
Famous movie and television actors singing pop/rock favorites –if not rejected outright - certainly must appeal to the part of one's brain that processes the "that's-so-aweful-it's-good" type of entertainment. The Golden Throat series does just that. The series was kicked off by Rhino Record's release in 1988 of "Golden Throats: The Great Celebrity Sing Off." Volumes 2, 3 and 4 followed in 1991, 1995, 1997, respectively. The cover of Volume 1 is a parody of the Beatles' "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" (1967). The cover of Volume 2 is a parody of the Rolling Stones' "Their Satanic Majesties Request" (1967).

Frank *Zappa & The Mothers of Invention - We're Only In It For the Money The *Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Frank Zappa Cover Spoof of Sgt. Pepper's Album Cover
The famous Beatles' 1967 "Sgt. Pepper's" album cover was designed by Peter Blake. The collage features the foursome among their heroes including dignitaries, friends, actors and even wax models of themselves. The cover is considered a turning point in album cover design, inspiring many interpretations in the ensuing years. Frank Zappa and the Mother of Invention's 1968 "We're Only in it for the Money" album cover was to originally include a parody of the Beatles' cover. It is reported that Zappa and the Mothers negotiated with the Beattles for almost a year and finally agreed to put the parody inside the album cover. So if you look inside you'll find a zany interpretation of the original cover Beatles' cover which serves as a comment on the pretenses of the late 1960s hippie movement.

The *Strokes - This Is It [Import] Diff'rent Strokes - This Isn't It [Import] The *Sex Pistols - Never Mind the Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols Various Artists - Never Mind the Sex Pistols

Paying Homage with Cover Art: Strokes and Bollocks
Many album cover designs that leverage previously released album art typically have more to do with the similarity of the artists' statement in their respective genres than the actual similarity in musical styles. Furthermore, the similarly designed albums are often tributes and contain covers of compositions by the original artist. Two examples of cover art mimicry include the 2003 parody "This Isn't It" mimicking The Strokes' 2001 "This Is It" and the 2000 tribute album "Never Mind the Sex Pistols" mimicking The Sex Pistols' 1977 "Never Mind the Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols."

Spinal Tap - This Is Spinal Tap Spinal Tap - Break Like the Wind

Spinal Tap
The 1984 mock, rock documentary written by Rob Reiner chronicles the adventures of the British heavy metal band, Spinal Tap, in the midst of their first American tour. The irony of the soundtrack and songs such as "Big Bottom" and "Stonehenge" is that they work better than the songs they parody. In 1990, a studio-only album with the same cast of characters assembled for "Break Like the Wind" to give fans another foul whiff of music.

The *Strokes - This Is It [Import] Diff'rent Strokes - This Isn't It [Import]

Diff'rent Strokes, The
The debut album "This Is It" from The Strokes caused a quite stir in 2001 as many hailed the group’s back-to-basics form of rock and roll. Prior to their U.S. release, their British release featured the sexy cover depicting a bare hip and glove. An unknown band called The Diff'rent Strokes paid homage with a four song EP titled "This Isn't It." The songs on the EP are played entirely with Casio synthesizers. Additionally, the nude model on the original is replaced by a doll on the parody's cover.

Pink Floyd - The *Wall Various Artists - Back Against the Wall: Tribute to Pink Floyd Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here Various Artists - Welcome to the Machine: An Electronic Tribute to Pink Floyd

The Wall and Back Up Against the Wall
Perhaps one of the most covered rock acts, Pink Floyd's album art has always been an important part of the Pink Floyd experience. The group's album covers are often used in parody, for inspiration, and to pay tribute. In these two tribute albums, the original Pink Floyd cover art is tweaked slightly for the new context. The first tribute is the 2005 tribute "Back Against the Wall: Tribute to Pink Floyd" which largely maintains original's brick wall illustration but turns it gray. The second tribute is the 2002 "Welcome to the Machine: An Electronic Tribute to Pink Floyd." The original album that the song "Welcome to the Machine" appeared on is Pink Floyd's 1975 "Wish You Were Here." The tribute album maintains the handshake but replaces the burning man with a hidden man grasping for cash.
