It's Flag Day: 20 memorable American flag album covers

Today is Flag Day, which is an opportunity to raise the Stars and Stripes, drink a Budweiser, crank the A/C and leave the windows wide open. The flag is often the go-to symbol for musicians who want to make a political statement -- from Johnny Cash to Miley Cyrus -- and artists have used Old Glory to catch eyeballs, evoke mood and sell some records, man.

Here are the twenty album covers that use the American flag, from the obscure to the iconic, in honor of Flag Day.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
