UFO Themes On Rock Album Covers: Through The Years
(Misfits – Walk Among Us – 1982/Ruby/Slash Records)
UFO’s On Rock Album Covers – Over the decades, the image or images of UFO’s (call ’em spaceships if you prefer) have graced numerous Rock album covers. From Punk Rock to Progressive Rock, the always mysterious UFO makes for some fun and interesting album covers. Most of these album covers with a UFO theme, that I’ve decided to share with you, are without question classics, both in their album cover artwork and music within, in my Metal opinion.
Take a look at ’em and see just how unique each album cover is, with it’s portrayal of the UFO and notice some are much more detailed than others. If you know of a Rock album cover from the past or present with a UFO on it, feel free to share the info via a comment!
(Electric Light Orchestra – Out Of The Blue – 1977/Jet Records)
(Electric Light Orchestra – Ticket To The Moon/The Very Best Of Vol. 2 – 2008/Epic)
ELO has used their trademark UFO on many of their album covers over the decades. When ELO didn’t have their spaceship on an album cover, it never seemed right to me. Then again, an album cover doesn’t affect the music so I’m not totally devastated.
(Boston – Boston – 1976/Epic)
(Boston – Corporate America – 2002/Artemis)
Boston has always held onto their recognizable UFO theme, with each of their respective album’s artwork. This Boston album cover is really cool… heck, the UFO is shaped like a guitar!
(The Flaming Lips – U.F.O.S At The Zoo – 2007/WEA/Reprise)
(Journey – Escape – 1981/Columbia Records)
After all these years, this album cover to Journey – Escape is still an all-time favorite of mine for it’s amazing artwork. Okay, it looks like a flying beetle ship escaping from a big bubble… that’s a UFO to me.
(UFO – II/Space Rock/Flying – 1971/Beacon)
What would a list of Rock album covers with UFO’s on ’em be… without the legendary UFO being represented? Metal be thy name.
(Transformers – Dark Of The Moon – 2011/Warner Bros.)
Those look like two very unfriendly alien vehicles in the sky, on this new album cover for: Transformers Dark Of The Moon (soundtrack). Well, this Transformers Dark Of The Moon soundtrack brings us up to the present day, when it comes to seeing a UFO on an album cover. Until next time, keep your eyes peeled to the sky… and to those Rock album covers too!
A UFO ON A ROCK ALBUM COVER IS COOL. YEAH.
