Best band logo of all time

Did your favorite band make the pic? Lots of great bands don’t have great logos. Hendrix didn’t have a memorable logo. Foo Fighter’s logo is in the pic, but it’s not as memorable as most of the others.

I’m no art or marketing student, but I do play in a band, so here goes 🙂

#10 Metallica – symmetry!


#9  The Doors – lower case!


#8  Journey – cool wings!


#7  Led Zeppelin – super tiny “p” loops!


#6  Cheap Trick – Courier font!


#5  Van Halen – slanted “v” and bigger “h” genius design!


#4  AC/DC – electric! (KISS “S” in the middle)


#3  Aerosmith – more wings, plus a sort of pre comic sans cursive!


#2 KISS  – lightening “S” shape and giant lettering looks so cool on stage!


#1  Rolling Stones – that tongue, those lips!


The greatest band logo ever was designed by John Pasche in 1970, who said he supposed the mouth idea came from when he met Mick Jagger for the first time 🙂

No matter where you saw the Stones–Levi’s Stadium, Candlestick, or some other less cool stadium–that logo welcomed you the second you walked in ~
