Your neighbor is up at 4am and shouting at the television and every bar you pass is noisier than usual, which can only mean one thing:

The World Cup is in full swing.


Now; if you’re anything like me, you’re not even remotely interested in the World Cup and finding it difficult to muster any sort of excitement for the event, which began last Thursday and runs until Sunday, July 15th. Lucky for us non-soccer folks, someone was kind enough to translate the World Cup into something we understand and the result is something absolutely brilliant!

The fine folks at Dorothy design studio are the masterminds behind this genius project. Based out of Liverpool, Dorothy took 24 of the most iconic album covers in classic rock and re-imagined them for the World Cup, featuring 24 of the event’s most iconic moments; instead of Pink Floyd’s two businessmen shaking hands on the cover of Wish You Were Here, Brazil legend Pele trades shirts with England captain Bobby Moore.

The World Cup’s Golden Boot replaces Andy Warhol’s pop art banana on The Velvet Underground & Nico, and a lonely George Best adorns the cover of David Bowie’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars. 

Did your favorite album make the cut? There’s only one way to find out – check out some of the covers just below this article!
