The Iconic Album Covers That Need to Become Internet Memes

Categories: Digitalia


I don't know anyone who doesn't know what an Internet meme is. In case you don't, I think the best definition is found in the Urban Dictionary (yep, that's a thing, too, Web novice). It says a meme is "an internet information generator, especially of random or contentless information."

This random and contentless information is often carried across the 'Net on the back of some image or another. Quite frankly, I believe some of those backs must be getting very tired. How many more Socially Awkward Penguin or Y U No Guy posts before they are rendered completely ineffective?

It's time for some new meme images to emerge, so why can't they emerge from our record collections? Here's are some I think could take a bit of the weight off the backs of Grumpy Cat and Bad Joke Eel, God bless 'em:


Ooh La La, Faces
Replaces Condescending Wonka, who pokes fun at the insufferably self-assured. This fellow (he even has a Wonka-like top hat) has one condescending response to every argument. A big, fancy-pants "Oooooh La La!" For example, "Oh, you only eat organic vegetables grown by local farmers?" OOH LA LA!


With The Beatles, The Beatles
Replaces "B*tch, Please," also known as "Yao Ming Face," which is frequently used when people get too self-congratulatory. In just their second studio album, the band's cover art says it all - "We are a force to be reckoned with."

Oh, you got a promotion and a raise? Negotiated -- and wrecked -- an STD-free threesome? Toppled your incapable government and replaced it with idealistic young people who could install truly democratic government?

Bitch, please. You're still not better than us.


Wish You Were Here, Pink Floyd
Replacing Success Kid, because he needs to stop being a meme so he can go to elementary school now. Example: Just add "I'm On Fire!" to any existing Success Kid meme.

No, just no. If y'all want to to turn Miley Cyrus or Justin Bieber into a meme, fine, by all means go ahead and do it. But leave the classics alone. This alleged article is doing the opposite of supporting music.
