Slide Show: Uber-Patriotic Album Covers

America's Independence Day is this weekend, where we salute the courage of our forefathers with controlled aerial explosions and small grease fires in our backyards. Nobody likes a silent holiday, so we found some album covers with plenty of American spirit, which illustrate in no uncertain terms why the words "patriotic" and "tasteful" are so rarely found together.

We've been advised by our legal department not to tell you the rules of our newly-invented Patriotic Album Cover Drinking Game, so all we will say is: we need to lie down right now. While we do that, check out the slideshow here.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
