Although the record was released on November 6th 2001 – almost two months after the tragic September 11th terrorist attacks – the cover was apparently created in June 2001. :
"I'm sure you're familiar with the CD "Party Music" by the "Coup" and its cancelled front cover, which featured the towers exploding (at strangely prophetic locations). While the original cover was cancelled supposedly because it might be upsetting, they made sure a lot of people (who might otherwise never have seen it) got a good look at it by reporting on it and even displaying it. I remember the coverage. Because I already had some doubt in the back of my mind about the whole story, I was naturally curious, and went online to find out more. Now just the cover, perhaps if you were very inclined to believe the official story no matter what, you could chalk that up to pure coincidence. But if you did go look online you would find the inside jacket which again shows the towers - this time with 2 planes. At that point we're beyond coincidence. Further so if you take into account that one of the figures on the cover holds a detonator as the towers explode - which pretty much covers the two main theories that would emerge, bombs and plane strikes. The other figure holds a pair of conductors batons, like at an orchestra. Also the name of the group - "Coup" - predicts the "everything changed" theme."
