Jocks recreate classic album covers of Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Katy Perry & Run DMC [photos]


ESPN the magazine came up with an idea for their music issue. They’ve taken iconic album covers and recreated them with current athletes. Check out Ryan Lochte recreating the swimming baby from Nirvana’s classic “Nevermind” album, sprinter Allyson Felix as Beyonce on the Dangerously in Love” album cover, Bucs Josh Freeman as Michael Jackson on the “Thriller” album, NFL stars Trent Richardson, LaMarr Woodley and Marshawn Lynch as Run DMC and more.

The issue features LeBron James and Dr. Dre on the cover discussing how “Beats by Dre” took over the locker room and your jocks favorite playlists.
