This might be the cutest thing you’ll see all day. Kitten Covers is a Tumblr page which features some of the most important albums in rock history, with the band members and models replaced by cats. Like, the KISS cats! The kitten craze is everywhere. Cat memes have been done to death, but this project gets a pass. Just look at Bowie cat. It would be the best pet ever. Check out more of the rock-star felines below!

I’ve taken the lead single off of a few major bands fourth albums as a comparison, and there’s only a few exceptions where a weak lead single off a fourth album hasn’t hurt the band, but please note in those cases, those bands had a monster third album, which the Strokes did not…
