Checking in: Unique Airbnb picks of the week

Have you ever listened to an album and imagined you’re being transported to another location?

Well, why imagine when you can actually visit the places in some of the best album titles of all time?

This week we highlight locations that helped to inspire some real classics: a house just a few miles from Joshua Tree National Park, a classic London flat that’s steps from Abbey Road, and this Moscow apartment where you can listen to The Ramones’ Rocket to Russia on full blast, at least until the neighbours complain.
