I can't believe both of my noms made it in! :o

Too bad for Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers though... that's an awesome logo.

Oh man, so close on Roger Clyne. The only band whose merch tent looks like it could have its own line at Target.

I'm going to see if we can get a graphic designer to break these down for the blog - explain the fonts and such. If you guys know anyone who does this stuff, let me know.

Carl, maybe you could get an interview with the founding members of Hipgnosis (Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell)

or Roger Dean ( artist of Yes album covers) and kill two birds with one stone.

That's a good idea. Storm Thorgerson might be my favorite Rock illustrator.

Here it is on the blog - our design expert like The Stones logo too (but not The Dead). Thanks for Rocky for help writing this:

I realize I'm jumpin' in real late on this one; I just got on board after being away from Songfacts for a long time...

Can't believe nobody mentioned (or remembered?) the 70's glam-rock band Angel! (Punky Meadows, Frank Dimino, Greg Giuffria, Barry Brandt, Felix Robinson). Not only did they have some really great rocking songs, their LOGO was the only one that I recall that was perfectly legible upside-down! That was pretty much everyone's mindset at the time, come to think of it!

(Damn, can't figure out how to show the logo here - I attached...)
