It seems like many bands have symbols that are synonymous with them... So which ones do you think are the best, most iconic, or just downright awesome of all time?

As for myself, I think Eddie from Iron Maiden is definitely up there. I've also always liked the Grateful Dead's skull one.

hell yes.
I'd rather have a dirty shirt and a guitar than a clean shirt and no music.

Turn my amp up to 11 six nickel-wound strings have saved me again.

ziltoid's awesome, but he's kinda a one-album thing I think

He has an appearance at every single live concert, and in the Juular video, and he's going to have a second album about him coming either next year or the year after.

Eddie might be on every album cover, but he sure as heck doesn't talk to the crowd, shouting "SUCK ON THAT, FAG NIPPLES!" after fake-arguing with the lead singer during shows.

bands with specific logos or mascots are with very few exceptions extremely ****ing lame.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

**** Face, Less than Jake's Mascot.

The Rolling Stones tongue logo is pretty common.

**** yeah, I didn't know DT still planned on following up that album.

DEVO is the only band I can think of.



and that's neither a mascot nor a logo really.

Dream Theater symbol is pretty cool... And I really like Animals As Leaders' concentric ring thing. Periphery's logo is quite fitting, I think...

I like Bulby and Stumpy the Pirate, but that's probably more to do with liking the album as opposed to the characters. The 50s style adverts with them in were pretty cool though. I can't even thing of any others apart from Eddie and the Dr Feelgood face

Quality.

Dude, spoiler that shit.

The old Guns N' Roses logos from the early 90s were pretty badass.

Eddie started out as a stage prop that spit blood, and later became a 9-foot tall costume.

Regarding logos, I quite like Revocation's logo. As far as unreadable metal band logos go, this one looks pretty cool.

^Lol, no. None of the unreadable ones.

Even if you can't read them, they're still interesting in their own way. Also, they suit the music.

Yeah, but there's nothing memorable or iconic about what looks like scribbles.

I've always like their logo too. It seems different than the other death metal bands.

As for symbols, the Demon Hunter and Oh, Sleeper symbols are kind of iconic.
