apparently it's a painting by someone called helnwein. you can see it online:

"Dream as if you'll live forever...Live as if you'll die today". Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean & Humphrey Bogart share their common tales in this classic Diner scene painted by Helnwein

it looks more like a poster than a painting

BTW, what was the answer to the tie breaker question??

That must be the take off of Hopper's "Night Hawks at the Diner." Basing a trivia question about a song based on an imitation of a painting is like saying Kenny Roger's "The Gambler" is based on "Dogs Playing Poker"!

The really famous painting that looks like Boulevard of Broken Dreams is Nighthawks by Edward Hopper. This lesser-known version is a spoof on the Hopper painting. Still, you guys ask some great questions! Very hard, even for an old-timer like me.
