I didn't notice until just now when I was listening to Type O Negative that my band's Logo is pretty much a ripoff...

Type O Negative


My Band


Idk how I didn't notice this before
For clarification we're not a cover band and we don't even play metal, more like Husker Du than Habitual Defilement.

I came up with the name and logo a couple years ago and just recently started having enough time off from another band I'm in to start my own. So would this logo/name similarity cause an issue in the future if we gained any sort of traction? I'm aware that, like most bands, we'll probably never get that far but I'd rather come up with something else while it wont be an issue if I absolutely have to.

EDIT: btw band name is "Negative Sun", obviously the logo contains all the subtle artsy-ness I could muster.

It won't ever be an issue unless you guys get some sort of larger recognition and start making albums and putting that logo on stuff. If anything, someone will probably just say "hey that looks kind of like Type O Negative's logo!" and that will be it. The chances of you running into someone who is in a position to do anything legal against you is pretty unlikely. So I wouldn't worry about it right now, but don't sell anything with the logo on it just to be safe.

Genius! then the sunshine-daisy outsides makes sense

Wouldn't a sideways vagina match the original better though?

Too bad "The Vaginas" is already a band or I'd just go with that.

That's not seriously your logo right?

Seriously, please design me a better one if you're able, my design skills are awful. Yeah if I can't find someone to make a better one that's it until I can. I was aiming for simplistic and circular, like a road sign symbol almost; like the germs, crass, bad religion, fear, dead kennedys, that kind of thing.

It looks somewhat better inverted

I tried to convince people I know it was pronounced with an "H" sound and no one ever believed me, so I stopped because I didn't want to seem like a pretentious prick. Greek food is awesome any way you pronounce it though.
Quote by MeTallIcA313
Negative Sun is a pretty boss band name.

Every good band name I thought of was taken when I looked it up except Negative Sun.

Sonic Titan, taken twenty times over
Quash, not taken but not that great
Buzzf*ck, taken
Buzzhead, not as good as Buzz**** but not taken at least
Killer Queen of Wales, not taken but the joke would wear quickly
And about a hundred more I though were great but were in use when I looked.

@MeTallIcA313: BTW I'm from Monroe County, PA. I also went to school to be an electrician, haven't been able to find a job in it though.

I got a chuckle out of it, I'm liking the idea of using the original as a basis for different variations.

But how about putting the flames on the inside of the circle instead of the outside?

Not a bad idea, if I can figure out how to do it it's worth a shot.

It looks like the bastard love child logo of Type O and Alice in Chains.

Or Godsmack.

I can imagine some white trash biker-wannabe hearing it and being like "this doesn't sound anything like godsmack "

I think this is more accurate though:
