Logo #162: Disturbed
Melodic metal merchants Disturbed currently rock two symbols: first, the Mick Haggerty-designed mash-up representing the world's religions all rolled up into one big beautiful theological Tootsie-Pop, from the cover of their 2002 "Believe" LP - and "The Guy," created by Greg Capullo and Todd McFarlane for the cover of their "Ten Thousand Fists" album in 2005. "Down With The Sickness" is truly their standout hit, their magnum opus (or dopiest, depending on where you stand on modern heavy metal) - beautifully suitable for zombie film remakes or just driving down Vignes Street in Los Angeles. Don't you want to be down with the Vignes? Until suddenly it changes, that is. Violently it changes. Oh no.
