These classic rock and metal album sleeves with added Bernie Sanders are truly iconic
US politician Bernie Sanders is providing rich inspiration for highly entertaining rock album-related memes
He may not have won the Democratic Party’s nomination to take on Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election, but left-leaning Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has become one of the most recognisable and warmly-regarded US politicians of the past decade, particularly among younger voters, who’ve adopted the 79-year-old as a fertile subject for memes.
So when Sanders was photographed by Brendan Smialowski at Joe Biden’s socially-distanced inauguration ceremony in Washington DC, wrapped up in a warm coat and sporting rather snazzy mittens, the internet had a field day, resulting in some brilliantly creative and fabulously bizarre new images riffing on classic album sleeves.
A star is (re) born.
