This is the cover art for 1979's "Unknown Pleasures", the debut LP from post-punk legends, Joy Division.
1.The first of two "Star Wars" designs, Darth Vader's iconic helmet.
2.The mother of all Joy Division spoofs, Mickey Mouse. The Internet howled in anger (hysterically misplaced, but I digress...) and Disney subsequently pulled the design from its site, which in turn fueled an explosive secondary market on eBay.
4.Arranged with pasta.
5.The Triforce from "The Legend Of Zelda".
6."Doctor Who"'s Tardis.
7.The New York City skyline.
8.Mashed here with the Misfits' logo.
9.Frank from "Donnie Darko".
10.Wu-Tang + Joy Division = I.C.R.E.A.M. (Ian Curtis Rules Everything Around Me)
11.Reverend Lovejoy from "The Simpsons".
12.A second "Star Wars" parody, this one inspired by the pod racing sequence from "The Phantom Menace".
13.Serenity, the fictional spacecraft, from Joss Whedon's "Firefly".
14.The Golden State, California, as channeled through a noir-ish filter.
Below: Peter Saville speaks about the artwork, its proliferation, and legacy.
My favorite Joy Division track, back when they went by Warsaw. Crusty, but eminently tuneful.
