I’m a little skeptical that the Velvet Underground’s VELVET UNDERGROUND album is the 13th best rock album of all time, so defendant, Andy Warhol Foundation, should probably deny that allegation. I’m not a big Nico fan. Nevertheless, a strong album (“Heroin” for example, is a decent song). Any way, the Velvet Underground paid Andy Warhol $1500 to design the album cover and it has since become one of the most famous album covers of all time. I still have my copy (btw, if you want to recommend a USB turntable, please do so using the comment section). VU alleges that the banana design has achieved secondary meaning. The Warhol Foundation has been licensing the design to third parties.
