But in her downtime, the cat owner uses kittens as her muse to recreate classic album covers, and the result is rather entertaining. She first came up with the idea for her website, The Kitten Covers, while she was at home sick in bed, looking at old, iconic album covers online with her cat. She noticed the graphic, exaggerated style of art in the album covers, and immediately had a vision of David Bowie as a kitten.

Iron Meowden’s debut album leaves me wondering if this is a real-life Bill the Cat.

The saddest thing in the world is an established “artist” who knows they don’t even have to try anymore.

I wonder how Nirvana got away with the naked baby pic but here is the guy today

"Elden told MTV news back in 2008 that, "It was kind of creepy [to think] that many people have seen me naked. I feel like I'm the world's biggest porn star."

I seem to remember Blind Faith putting a nude 12 year old girl on an album cover way back. I think they had to change the cover, but could you imagine what the reaction would be now days. Both are iconic groups. I guess they though they could get away with it.

Still have that album with the young chick holding the chrome airplane. Sometimes wonder if that thing is worth some money to collectors.
