NME

The poll is based on ICONIC images that are striking or speak a thousand words, etc.

therefore i think Purple Rain is quite a good choice. the whole girl / boy, pimped out 80's look WAS prince. Even now if there's a cartoon or spoof of Prince on the TV, it's a guy in make up with a purple overcoat. so i can see why of all the covers of Prince, PR has come out on top. personally i think SOTT was an amazing picture, but i guess many wouldn't have a clue what album it is (if you took P's face away)

Just because it's a popular album. SOTT is a better album cover, but didn't sell almost 20 million copies.

On their other show of the 100 greatest rockers, or whatever the hell they called it, wasn't Prince at #18 too?

this is a much more iconic cover. i've even seen framed prints of this one in real-life, credible photography galleries/stores.

I know, but so was "1999"-another album tohse idiots-sorry-people talk about endlessly.
And in my opnion at least, "1999" is wayyy better cover than "purple rain"

On their other show of the 100 greatest rockers, or whatever the hell they called it, wasn't Prince at #18 too?

probably, somehow they always manage to put him in the top 20 for their countdowns

I think like a virgin is a better album cover than purple rain.
It sorta has a classy element to it-as opposed to purple rain's cheap lookin' self.

Really? I guess I'm out of the habit of watching VH1 lately. I do know that Art Garfunkle digs 1999 though.
