Conspiracy theories have been circulating since before the 19th century. Honestly, knowing humans, probably even longer. Some of these conspiracies really make for some controversial legacies (flat Earth, anyone?). Combining this with our fascination with celebrities’ lives and their downfall , we’ve concocted some weird theories. Throw the dark world of music in there, and you might as well have made Snow White’s poison apple. From Illuminati associations to animal body parts, here are the weird conspiracies in music.
Supertramp is an English rock band that started in London in 1970. Their 1979 album “Breakfast In America” had a cover that one listener claims predicted the terrorist attacks in New York on September 11, 2001. The album cover shows the perspective of an airplane window with New York City and the Twin Towers in the background. Outside is a flight attendant holding orange juice.
The plane theme combined with New York City is only the first connection of 9/11 with Supertramp. Conspiracy theorists claim that when the image is flipped, the “u” and “p” of the band’s name spells out 911 above the twin towers. They also say the word “Breakfast” predicts that the attacks happened early in the morning. Although coincidences are there, it doesn’t seem likely a British band knew Al Qaida would attack New York 22 years before it actually happened.
