#FlashbackFriday: Iconic Album Covers Recreated With Kittens

Indisputable fact #1: the Internet loves felines. Indisputable fact #2: it also adores a clever remix. So the understandable fuss when the two overlapped in an adorable gallery, The Kitten Covers, late in 2011 (thank you, Photoshop gods, thank you). The account's gone fallow of late but that doesn't mean its treasures are any less awesome (and, thankfully, there are teases of an impending revival?!?). Collected below: 15 of our favorite entries, all of which conjure up a rich rock & roll anti-history that will give you pause, errr, paws. (Did you see what I did there? OK, good.)
