Ever see the Beatle's Sgt. Pepper album cover?
Almost everone pictured on it are dead.

Prediction? You decide.


they are probably all dead because everyone on the sgt pepper cover were all well over the age of forty at the time and the album was released 45 years ago. just an idea...


*incidentally, a lot (like marylin monroe) were already dead before it's release

asking for a specific picture of a future event is impossible. i want you to show me a picture of you in 2032. use common sense before making an argument.

Looks like he was a Mason. I find these artistic renditions so indicative of one gigantic mosaic articulated some how in the landscape and architecture of the world we live in. Not just on album covers. I choose not to elaborate on that it may be off topic and I don't want to hijack or derail. I will offer the album Physical Graffiti for all to ponder also.

The name of the album is more than a hint to the theme..



You stare in to the actual album cover and you will see everything from the devil, to a full on Led Zeppelin concert to guitars drum sets blasphemes against God the works are in this puppy. And you don't have to be a drug crazed white punk on dope to see it in the actual cover either. I've studied this one off and on for years and there seems to be no limit to what you can find. Oh and 911 is spattered everywhere.

This is good ,most of his music too had alot of meaning and gave out information.It is also interesting that he had to produce that album by himself the record company he was with refused to do so. I have some old albums I will really look at their covers ,thanks!!

Its very annoying to see so many off-topic posts in this thread.

The mods are obviously asleep.

The thread is specifically about the Marvin Gaye Album cover.

It is not asking people to present all the other album covers or pictures they think hold some messages.

Stick to topic.

I think it is a very interesting find. Considering the title of the album it makes it all the more fascinating.

It would be good to find the artist responsible for this cover? Anyone have the details?

Think about what you've just said. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE.

That is what the OP and others are referring to, that in some way album covers in the past have 'predicted' or 'knew about' things that would happen in the future. As you said... IT IS IMPOSSIBLE.

Pot. Kettle. Black.

I believe it was Neil Breeden who designed the cover.

Maybe - I just think some things are so obviously stupid that they're good targets for artistic liberty - such as living in a flood plain, and nuclear power.

Michael Jackson was very aware of TPTB and occultic symbolism. He spoke out against it all many times. Some say that that's why his character was assassinated.. but I don't really know all of the details of the trials or if he was actually guilty.

I think when he used the symbolism it was for a different purpose than to go along with hidden reasons for the symbols. Maybe to expose it to people that noticed?

C'mon he isn't singing about Fukashima or BP. The partial meltdown at Three Mile Island happened in 1979 and the IXTOC oil spill in the gulf, which was about the same as BP's, also happened in 1979.

He isn't singing about the future but about what was happening then.

Thanks for this find! VERY VERY DOPE!

My parents have this and Ive seen it a million times, but not since I have come into the knowing of the symbolism. It's all there.. the butterfly makes me sad. Was this great talent being Mk Ultra'd? Probably..so this certainly explains much about his life and his demise. The dual Marvins, good and evil is very telling.

More to the other content of the cover, the destruction of the world is the elite's system to give birth to a new humanity. That is the religion. Its all there, really nothing new. In order for their magic rituals to work, the sacrifice( us) must be warned of the intent, their plans.Its up to us to participate, even if we bombarded , blindly, by their symbols. Our comprehension of whats happening is not important. We must however CHOOSE of our free will to be the sacrifice, chose to participate in order for the the ritual to work and for them to be dissolved of all bad karma. Backwards indeed.. They know this and utilize this aspect with all their rituals. And we the couch potatoes, Ipads and our Itunes and HDTV are willing participants.

Interesting theory and album cover...but I find it a bit far fetched.

Firstly, all of the things you see there will happen in all of our lifetimes. Floods are not a new thing, floods aren't exclusive to hurricane katrina. People have claimed to spot ufo's for years, etc,

Roads are being built - it looks to me like the roads are being built to bridge the crack in the earth - doesn't this symbolise division? Maybe he expected to see world peace in his lifetime. All I see is vision of hope and peace...while all these terrible things happen around us...we've enough to contend with in this world without fighting one another.

If you ask me, this cover tried to predict a future, but fails - i see few roads being built to bridge cultural gaps, more wars and poverty.

As a second interpretation it could be that the earth is destroyed, there's some kind of shuttle which I didn't notice at first, looks like an evacuation while the earth burns and crumbles...but - there's no road on the other side of the crack, to me this implies the road was never completed.

Either way, not many bridges being built. As for the earth breaking in half and being evacuated - I thought that was a dream, oops!

I haven't seen all the posts but has someone mentioned that one of the top headlines in Obama winning last election was, "In our lifetime?" It meant that finally, a black president. I specifically remember it being attached to some memorabilia for sale at that time too. Does it strike a bell with anyone else?

Re: The Marvin Gaye album cover- I'm not seeing the conspiracy here. Honestly. He was raised Pentecostal. His dad was a minister (crazy that he killed his own son). As someone who was raised Pentecostal myself, I can tell you with 100% certainty that he was inundated with apocalyptic scaremongering throughout his childhood. No doubt in my mind. To me, this album cover reflects that more than ANYTHING else.

Oprah once asked Michael Jackson why he always grabbed his crotch in music videos. He said it was by accident, and most of the time is embarrassed by it when reviewing his music videos. Looks like a secret masonic type hand sign to me.

It's just art, based on the same fears and debates that people have now!

Below is a link to some artwork done for our album " Before It All Ends". It is all stuff we wanted in there. Including Skyrim dragons. It makes for cool discussion and fantastic album art. Like any artist, we want the cover to represent the past, present and possible futures. We wanted as much symbolism as we could get...and each time you look at it, you find something new!



End of the world?

I think these are common themes, and that his predicts the future in so much as any piece of fiction predicts the future;
