Inalienable proof that Supertramp predicted 9/11


Conspiracy and bible theorists are having a heyday with Supertramp’s 1979 album Breakfast in America. Why? First, there’s the visual imagery itself. The cover shows what looks like a fake Lady Liberty holding a glowing orange flame up to New York’s Twin Towers.

For some, the cover conjures up dire warnings from the Book of Revelations:

“As I researched the (cover’s) possible deeper meanings dealing with the obvious (to myself) symbolism relating to Biblical passages that speak of a “great” (super) “harlot” (tramp) which sits on many waters and is holding up a golden cup over The Great City! The ancient texts goes one step further describing a mystery of the harlot in that she simply represents the Great City!” writes m.f. at

Perhaps Revelations 18 is speaking of New York City:

“‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’
She has become a dwelling for demons
and a haunt for every impure spirit,
a haunt for every unclean bird,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.
For all the nations have drunk
the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”

That alone might not be enough to convince anyone of anything.


Invert the Supertramp cover, and the partially cut-off letters “UP” spell out “9/11” directly above the Twin Towers. UCR goes on to point out more symbolism on the cover:

The band’s name could be seen as a synonym for “great whore” — as in the Great Whore of Babylon, the embodiment of sin the the New Testament Book of Revelation. And even the title Breakfast in America tells everybody when the attacks would be coming; the first plane struck One World Trade Center at 8:45AM ET. If that’s not enough evidence, on the lower right corner of the back cover is a plane flying toward the skyline.

Need more “proof”? Stanley August Miesegaes, the Dutch millionaire who financed the band in its early days, appears to be wearing a Masonic pendant in a photograph. Freemasons have often been accused by conspiracy theorists of trying to bring about the New World Order. They were famously lampooned in an episode of The Simpsons, where Homer Simpson was discovered to be the “Chosen One” of a secret society that controls the world called the “Stonecutters.”

I’d argue that the album cover itself looks like a photograph taken from the window of an airplane (you can see the window frame on three sides of the image). If that’s the case, the plane could be turning toward the city and the towers.

If nothing else, it’s all proof that the deeper you look, the more symbolism you find.

  1. The original music video for the song, “Breakfast in America” cannot be viewed on Youtube due to copyright. If you did happen to catch the animated video directed by Bruce Gowers in 1979, you would see a plane crash into one of the twin towers at 2:22 of the video. If you think that’s a coincidence, you are definitely a coincidence theorist. Try and find the video, its tough as it is taken down quickly after people post it. They are hiding it.

  2. You need to F.O.C.U.S.. Obviously it is the other way round. The attackers got their inspiration as to when and where and how by intensively studying the cover in a mirror. As one is wont to do, you sc’s. 🙂
