Cover me[edit]

I've heard ("Pop-Up Video", I think) Salford Lads' Club is on the cover of The Queen is Dead. U.S. ed? or what? Trekphiler 10:51, 18 December 2006 (UTC) (Not that I much care...)

Isn't it "Cemetery" gates? James.Spudeman 19:11, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
There is a group photo on the inside gatefold of the original LP (an alternate take of this seminal shot was used in the CD booklet) taken in front of the Salford Lads Club. The front cover and inner sleeve feature Alain Delon, while the back cover is plain green. -- Curt Woyte (talk) 13:17, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
No, it is "Cemetry Gates", at least according to the record sleeve.

Expand and reference this, and it could easily be a featured article[edit]

Thoughts?--h i s s p a c e r e s e a r c h 00:36, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

If the NME ranks this as the greatest album ever, why is it only rated as a 'mid-importance album' on wikipedia. This doesn't make sense. 80.1.165.31 (talk) 21:03, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Because the NME has always been prone to going way over the top, and have been known to call 3 or 4 albumns a week "the greatest album ever"? - SchroCat (talk) 21:07, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Salford Lads Club[edit]

That was the original album art for this record. it should be mentioned in the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.155.73.84 (talk) 22:53, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

Title[edit]

Is there a reason why this page is titled "The Queen Is Dead", rather than "The Queen is Dead", which would be more MOS compliant? Most third party sources use a lower case i in the middle: any reason why we are not? - SchroCat (talk) 11:42, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

The cover art cleary shows it as "Is"? 80.1.165.31 (talk) 20:58, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Which isn't a good reason to go against the MoS. - SchroCat (talk) 21:02, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
