Now, we all know there are lazy types in the music industry. Anyone who's suffered the entire length of Louise Redknapp's cover of Stuck in the Middle With You can attest to this.

But, by and large, album covers are still somewhat inventive. However, what would happen if designers suddenly stopped caring about innovation or creativity?

Well, the results would probably look a little something like this.

Rico Monkeon has aimed to redesign iconic album covers, by just googling the title and seeing what stock photos come up.

The results are impressively on the nose and might well be a depressingly funny look at the future.
