You can tell that list came from England, in fact I'd say it was rather typical

Now Ziggy Stardust may be a great album, but I wouldn't say it had an Iconic album cover...David Bowie standing outside a doorway in London...not really that brilliant...I think the album cover to The Man Who Sold The World was more iconic because David had the balls to be on the front in a dress.

Joy Division fair enough, The Smiths is just a bit of an Andy Warhol thing, and speaking of Andy Warhol, I would've thought the Velvet Underground's debut was a pretty iconic cover...So is Sticky Fingers...or even the Grateful Dead's debut album, one of the first psychedelic album covers

Well Dark side of the Moon, Led Zeppelin I and abbey road are the most iconic. It looks like a bunch of punk crap up there. As soon as i say the list, i knew it was from the UK. They view the world diffently from what we see it acroos the pond. Which is Fine.
