    #1 is certainly a shocker. I don't agree with it. There were many others that should've easily beaten it.

    I would have put The Beatles waaaaay higher on the list.

    The Cramps? Come on. All they did was lift the font from a monster magazine. How is that original or easily recognizable?

    And sickman beat me to it. I'm pretty sure most people on Earth would recognize the Zep logo before the Scissor Sisters.

    Yeah but it had nothing to do with how GOOD the band was. It was just how the logo looked.

    That's my point.

    If you wrote "The Cramps" using the Beatles logo style, people would say, "That's 'The Cramps' written in the style of the Beatles logo." But it wouldn't work the other way around.

    To put it another way, the test of a good logo is to use the logo style to write a different word and see if people still recognize it as the original brand.

    Imagine "Michelin" written with the style of the "McDonald's" logo. People would still look at it and think "McDonald's". Sure, they'd read the word as "Michelin", but they'd also think "McDonald's".

    Good point, I wasn't thinking of that.

    I have always just thought that the Beatles' logo looked like plain type...it was the band that defined the logo.

    Manfully conceeded, sir.

    And you're right about the quality of the band making the logo famous. If McDonald's didn't make good hamburgers, nobody would recognize their logo today.


    But enough of this politeness! This is the internet!

    If there's one thing I have learned in my life, it is this:

    Lists are created to stir up anger and create publicity and should not be discussed seriously.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
