Ruff Rockers: 7 Awesome Album Covers Featuring DogsRuff Rockers: 7 Awesome Album Covers Featuring DogsNow when you think about rock 'n roll cover art you probably think of hot babes, fast cars, leather, and guitars -- but some artists don't go for such conventional and clichéd imagery. These musicians are so confident in their coolness that they proudly feature a pup on their cover instead. And, really, who doesn't love a dog?

We're talking Pugs, St. Bernards, and Beagles, engaging in jumping, kissing, and, of course, looking adorable.

Norah Jones may look amazing on the cover, but it's hard not to just stare at that adorable St. Bernard. Norah Jones spoke about the cover saying, "She wanted to use a bunch of dogs because she likes working with animals. I thought it sounded fun. We ended up just loving the Saint Bernard so much that we got some shots with just him. He was so beautiful."

Did I save the best for last? I may have! This Weezer cover is awesome. Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo spotted this photo in National Geographic (from user submitted images) and thought it would be a great album cover. The band contact photographer Jason Neely of Middletown, Conn. who told them something very surprising. Sydney -- the dog in the photos -- is a big Weezer fan!
