Cover Me, Game Forty-One

Lord Jefito and I are still trying to figure out how this posted nearly a month early. My apologies to those of you who already submitted guesses – and early congrats to that rat bastard drxl, who’s already guessed the puzzle cover – but if it’s all right with you guys, I have deleted all of the previous comments, and we’re going to start from scratch. Although I replaced the puzzle cover.

Seriously, drxl, how did you get that so quickly? I thought I disguised it pretty well. Not well enough, apparently.

Below are magnified fragments of album covers. Most of them are well-known albums, but there are a few obscure covers (or lesser-known albums from well-known artists) mixed in to keep you honest. You must guess both the artist and album cover. In order to keep things simple, live albums, soundtracks and singles compilations will not be used, and with all apologies to our European and Japanese friends, we are going with the covers that appeared in the US record stores…back when we had record stores. Sigh.

The rules are the same as Name That Tune. Each player can make three guesses between updates (“Update” is defined as “The time when I post a comment listing all of the covers that have been guessed correctly,” “Guess” is defined as “any attempt to identify a single cover”), so everyone will have a chance to contribute. And, just to spice things up, we have a puzzle cover this week, yay! One guess per player of the puzzle between updates, please.

There is no acrostic this week, but there is definitely a theme. Good luck!

Lastly, the Puzzle Cover

I suggest subscribing to the comments on the post (click on “Track Comments”) to more easily follow the progress of the game. Remember, maximum of three guesses between updates of the list. Have fun!

    And obviously the theme is: Some of “The” bands who have “The” in their band names.

    Also, the rest of the name (after the “the” article) is monosyllabic

    Ding ding ding! And that's a wrap. See you next week for another round of Name That Tune.
