5. Four men are walking across a pedestrian crossing in Britain. Name the album.

From Quiz Famous Album Covers

Answer: Abbey Road

This Beatles' album cover was one of the contributing factors to the start of the "Paul is Dead" theory. Even if it sounds crazy, it's fun to look at the "clues". For example, on this album, Paul is barefoot (the dead are buried without shoes) and the licence plate on the Beetle says "28IF" (Paul's age at that time was 28 when the album was made).

6. A monkey sits in the middle of a geometric drawing, surrounded by numbers. Which album is it?

From Quiz More Classic Album Covers

As per usual Beach Boy Mike Love lets the others do all the work. While the Wilson brothers and Al Jardine are keeping the goats at bay, the best they can, he's hiding behind them. What a wuss.

14. Boston's first album cover depicts flying spaceships. On closer inspection, what do the spaceships resemble?

From Quiz Classic Rock Album Covers

Answer: guitars

Boston is an American rock band from Boston, Massachusetts. Their debut album, also called "Boston", was released in 1976. The cover was designed by Paula Scher and illustrated by Roger Huyssen, with lettering by Gerard Huerta, for Epic Records. Tom Scholz, Boston's founder and main guitarist/songwriter, wanted a guitar on the cover. In 2015, he stated that "The idea was escape; I thought of a spaceship guitar". Also in 2015, the artist, Paula Scher, felt that idea was a "cliche" and said that "The Boston cover was designed in 1976 and is now 39 years old. It was, and still is, in my opinion, a mediocre piece of work." Nevertheless, its popularity has endured for decades.

15. It's a Paul Simon album from 1986, and the cover is mostly white except for the title and a little square drawing of a man riding a horse. It's the one with "You Can Call Me Al" and "The Boy In The Bubble." What's that album called?

18. The cover of this 1979 release featured a series of spiky white lines on a black background--and that was it. The back cover of the original vinyl sleeve was a solid black field. What was the name of the album?

From Quiz 1970s Album Cover Art

Answer: "Unknown Pleasures," Joy Division

The cover was designed by Joy Division, along with Peter Saville and Chris Mathan. Peter Saville would go on to create the artwork for many New Order releases. These were also noted for their striking imagery, often with stark colors and little in the way of liner notes.

19. A large yellow banana on a white background. Name the band.

From Quiz Famous Album Covers

Answer: The Velvet Underground

On the cover of "The Velvet Underground & Nico", there is small font next to the banana that says, "Peel Slowly and See". When the original vinyl was released, there was a sticker on the inside that you could peel off a banana. It covered a pink banana.
