The Pink Floydism is really bothering me. You put this poll on any other forum and I think Abbey Road would run away with it.
I voted Abbey Road because.....
If my 90 year old grandmother saw it......she'd say "i know that picture, it's the Beatles"
While I know if a 6 year old saw it, they'd most probably say "Beatles"
And obviously most people in between would know at the very least that it's the Beatles.
Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon is very iconic and I'm not surprised it's winning.....I think amongst fans of both albums the covers are equally iconic, but when taking many steps back and thinking of just how much more iconic the Beatles are than Pink Floyd in general, it's just obvious to me that at the very least, the most iconic LP cover would be a Beatles cover......and I picked Abbey Road because I think it is the most emulated photograph in the history of music.
