"The Abbey Habit"

The Daily Mail takes a look at the many homages that the Abbey Road album cover has inspired over the years.

Their record label said it wouldn't sell because it did not feature the names of the band or the LP.

But 40 years on and 12million sales later, the most famous album cover of all time has been copied all over the world.

Dozens of bands - ranging from Booker T & The MGs to the puppet characters from TVs Sesame Street - have recreated their own versions of John, Paul, George and Ringo striding across the zebra crossing outside the Abbey Road studios on August 8, 1969.
