Independence Day, July 4th, 2012 – Album Covers That Celebrates This American Holiday!

Posted in album covers, Hard Rock, holiday songs, holidays, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on July 4, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

JULY 4TH, 2012 – As that colorful album cover above states, I wish everyone in America a Rockin’ Independence Day! July 4th is a holiday in America that observes and celebrates our forefathers adopting The Declaration Of Independence. The Declaration Of Independence was approved by The Continental Congress, back on July 4th, 1776; which resulted in the thirteen American Colonies no longer being part of/under rule of The British Empire.

Okay, the American history lesson is over! Now kick back, scroll down and enjoy some fun album covers that celebrates July 4th, Independence Day! Please note: you may find a couple of album covers here that were never intended as an Independence Day celebration; nonetheless, it goes along with the theme quite well.

1 Hour Of Orchestral Fireworks

Andre Reger And The Paris Pop Orchestra

Doesn’t this album cover give off a 1970’s Progressive and/or Psychedelic Rock vibe?

BONFIRE – FIRE WORKS 

This is the second studio album from the Hard Rockin’ band from Germany we all embrace as: BONFIRE. Fire Works  was released back in 1987 on BMG International. Fireworks are essential in their symbolism, during events and or activities that celebrates Independence Day.

JULY 4TH PARTY MUSIC (DJ’s Choice)

I have absolutely no idea what type of party music is on this album, other than it’s celebrating July 4th.

POLKA FIREWORKS – Eddie Blazonczyk’s Versatones

WHOA! Polka makes it to Metal Odyssey! Now… say “Eddie Blazonczyk’s Versatones” 5 times as fast as you can. Nice try. Hey… could there be such a genre as: Polka Metal? There might be… check out the video below to find out!

LIVE FIREWORKS

As I mentioned before, the 4th of July wouldn’t be the same without live fireworks. If you have 0% access to live fireworks today; then I suggest you get yourself a copy of this Live Fireworks album. Whoa.

CELEBRATE AMERICA – SONGS FOR THE 4TH OF JULY

This album cover is very patriotic. I dig that.

ROXETTE – FIREWORKS (EMI)

Yes, more fireworks! Roxette released this Fireworks 7″ single back in 1994; taken from their 1994 and fifth studio album: Crash! Boom! Bang!

INDEPENDENCE DAY 

Original Soundtrack Recording – Music By David Arnold

I just watched this movie on Monday night! A sci-fi classic! Seriously, I’ve seen this movie more times than I can count. This Independence Day movie culminates with the world’s independence from those pissed-off and severely constipated space aliens. Independence Day won an Academy Award for visual effects too. Whoa.

Here is another cover for the Independence Day movie soundtrack.

Thanks for sticking around for this entire list of Independence Day, July 4th album (themed) covers. Have a safe and happy Independence Day! Also… make certain you check the expiration dates on your hot dog and hamburger buns.

Metal Be Thy Name.

LONG LIVE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Life, Liberty, METAL and the pursuit of Happiness.

Long Live Polka Metal.

Stone.
