The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" has topped a new poll of best album covers.

Announcing the winner, editors write "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" is, "without a doubt, one of the most iconic images in the history of rock & roll."
Third on the list is Nirvana's "Nevermind" and "Abbey Road" by the Beatles and The Clash's "London Calling" round out the top five.
