Wow, Coldplay has slapped the name of a Frida Kahlo painting over Liberty Leading The People by Eugene Delacroix. Is that a joke or something? Are they Against Me! now? We’ll get a deeper look into Coldplay’s quest for fine art appreciation/ freedom when their single “Violet Hill” is released tomorrow.

  1. Chris N.

    Has Wal-Mart been alerted that there are breasts on this cover?

  2. Poubelle

    You know, if they had to have a painting from some European revolution, wouldn’t Goya have worked better with that title?

  3. Anonymous

    Delacroix is going to come back and kick some whiny-popstar ass.

  4. recidivicious

    The Pogues’ take on Géricault was better. This is just lazy.

  5. Dick Laurent is dead.

    @Poubelle: The next Radiohead album cover is going to be a take on “Saturn Devouring His Children” and will feature Chris Martin and the annoying guy from Muse being torn asunder by a lazy-eyed and angry pappy Thom.
