Here Are 7 of Our Favorite 'Abbey Road' Cover Homages

Beatles Abbey Road album cover photo

As far as Beatles anniversaries go, today is a pretty cool one: It's the 45th anniversary of the day the iconic Abbey Road cover photo was shot by Iain Macmillan.

In honor of that ubiquituos image, below we've rounded up some of our favorite images and moments honoring the iconic shot. Come for the Glee kids, stay for the unexpected Parent Trap clip.

1.) When Glee released two all-Beatles-music tribute episodes in 2013, they also released some homage-y cover art as well.

2.) Paul McCartney himself got in on the fun (and his own Beatles-era "Paul is Dead!" rumors") with the cover of his 1993 album.

3.) Performing live at Abbey Road Studios, this cover isn't exactly a surprise for 2006-era Kanye West.

4.) An illustrator had some fun with the Simpsons for a Nov. 2002 Rolling Stone cover.

5.) Sesame Street: Is there anything the beloved kids show hasn't lovingly spoofed? 

6.) The Red Hot Chili Peppers put their own...unique...spin on Abbey Road for the cover of their 1988 release, The Abbey Road E.P.

7.) The Parent Trap: Didn't expect to see a young Lindsay Lohan on this list, did you? But a scene from the actress' earliest film role gave a knowing wink to audiences when it had her travel across the famous street among a montage of iconic places. (The fun starts at :58)
