Supertramp ‘Breakfast in America’The theory has it that Supertramp predicted the 9/11 with their 1979 ‘Breakfast in America’ album cover. There are several details that supposedly predict the 2001 attack on the Twin Towers. The cover art shows Manhattan through the window of a plane.The title “Breakfast in America” refers to the time and location of the attacks. If you mirror the album cover, you will see that the ‘U’ and the ‘P’ above the towers SPELL OUT 9/11.
Presumably, Supertramp financier Stanley August Miesegaes was a Mason who used the cover art of the band's best-selling album to reveal details about a planned ‘event’ against the World Trade Center.
Michael Jackson ‘Blood On The Dance Floor’Some people believe that Michael Jackson predicted 9/11 with the cover of his 1997 album ‘Blood on the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix.’ On the cover, Jackson stands in front of a city skyline with thick clouds in the background. These are thought to be the clouds of dust from the collapse of the Twin Towers. The position of singer’s hands points at where a ‘9’ and an ‘11’ would be located on a clock face. Some people say that his hands are at ‘8’ and ‘10,’ making the time 8:50 (the attacks began at 8:46 AM). The album title is supposed to symbolize the bloodshed of those killed in the attacks.
Radiohead ‘Kid A'The theory that claimed that Kid A predicted 9/11 was first stated by writer Chuck Klosterman in his book ‘Killing Yourself to Live’ and has gained traction on the Internet.
Allegedly, the songs on the album tell the story of 9/11 through their sequence, the change in music, and most importantly, their lyrics.
The first song on Kid A paints the Manhattan skyline at 8:00 A.M. on Tuesday morning. The song is titled ‘Everything in Its Right Place.’ But something happens three and a half minutes into ‘Kid A,’ and it suddenly doesn't feel right, and you don't exactly know why. ‘Everyone has got the fear/What's going on?’ Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke sings on ‘The National Anthem,’ the apocalyptic, horn-laden centerpiece track of the album.
Since this, fans have continued the theory by analyzing ‘Kid A’s album art in addition to the lyrics. Many say that the album’s front cover, inside cover art, and the hidden booklet all feature fiery and disturbing images, including what are said to look like two towers burning in one corner.
The Beatles ‘Abbey Road’This is perhaps the most well-known album cover conspiracy. It alleges that Paul McCartney died in a 1966 car crash and was secretly replaced by a look-alike. Supposedly, band’s managers decided to cover up his death. But the group felt bad about lying to their fans and left some clues on the album cover of ‘Abbey Road,’ released in 1969.
Here are a few crazy ideas about the clues on the cover:
John, George, Ringo, and Paul walk across the street as if in a funeral procession, with their outfits representing their respective roles in the ceremony: white for a clergyman, jeans for the gravedigger, black for the undertaker, and barefoot Paul as the dead man.
The white VW Beetle in the background has the registration LMW 28IF - 28 being the age conspiracy theorists say Paul would have been IF he hadn't 'died.' In fact, Paul was 27 when Abbey Road was released - but fortunately for the theorists, Indian mystics count a person's age from conception, not birth, in which case Paul would have indeed been 28. It has also been suggested that the LMW stands for 'Linda McCartney Weeps' - referring to his new wife whom he had married earlier that year.
Also, Paul McCartney is left-handed, but on the cover of the album, he holds his cigarette in his right hand. Fun fact: the cigarettes at that time were commonly referred to as 'coffin nails.'
The Beatles ‘Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band’Sgt. Pepper’s is The Beatles 8th studio album, released in 1967. The cover image that was captured for the record was a difficult picture to take. 57 life-sized cardboard photographs of celebrities were constructed. The band also used nine waxwork models, a stone bust, a portable TV, four statuettes and a doll wearing a jumper with the words ‘Welcome the Rolling Stones.’ But, most importantly, The Sgt. Pepper’s cover appears to show a funeral service, and all of the celebrities featured in the picture have a common death experience. Like all Beatles album covers, it has been suggested that a large number of clues imply Paul McCartney’s death. Most of the people featured on the cover had either died young or experienced a near-death accident. Bob Dylan’s suffered a bad 1966 motorcycle crash, Stuart Sutcliffe (Beatles’ original bass player) passed away in 1962. There are also Aleister Crowley, Mae West, Jewish comedian Lenny Bruce, architect Simon Rodia, Robert Peel, Dylan Thomas, Dion, Marilyn Monroe, and many more.
The wreath of yellow flowers included on the cover appears to be in the shape of a left-handed bass guitar. A small white toy car is visible on the lap of the Shirley Temple doll. This is a bizarre feature that has been attributed to a possible car wreck.
And, finally, the cover shows Paul McCartney wearing a hat with the letters O.P.P, which stands for Ontario Provincial Police. This falls in line with the reports that Paul McCartney was replaced with a man named William Sheppard, coming from the Canadian police department.
