We recently riffed on the cat-tastic cover art of Wilco’s new project, Star Wars, by rounding up a bunch of other albums that feature felines. During the highly scientific research phase of the operation, we also became reacquainted with the Kitten Covers series of spoofs, which we first stumbled across back in the hazy days of 2012. In the ever-pressing interests of furthering the links between cats and musicians, here’s seven of the best.
1. Dreamboat Annie
In which the debut album of rock band Heart, which came on the scene in the 1970s with sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, is recast with a couple of adorable kittens. Don’t fight the cuteness.
Ever wonder what the floating kitten from the cover of the iconic Nevermind album, the debut from 1990s grunge band Nirvana, is up to these days?
3. Unknown Pleasures
Here, the science-tastic, computer-generated cover of Joy Division’s 1979 release is filtered through the feline zone.
A 1980s classic motion picture soundtrack is recast with a spunky dose of kitten power. Also: More cats need to strut around wearing the Sony Walkman.
5. Straight Outta Compton
It is often good to sit and ponder how the world would be if kittens had led the gangsta rap movement. Here we get a glimpse as kittens commandeer the cover of N.W.A.’s Straight Outta Compton, now also a biopic about the seminal L.A. rappers.
Speaking of groundbreaking works, Black Flag’s studio debut originally dropped in 1981 — and here its fiery punk attack is being channeled by a particularly feisty tabby.
7. The Christmas Song
When world peace is finally achieved, every day will look like this.
