I didn't mean to sound as snarky as I did. Most everyone appropriates images. I just think you have to change it enough to justify it or make it interesting... especially if is a contemporary/current artist, like if it was redrawn or collaged or cut up or drawn over. It's weird to me to stick so close to the original artist's work because... maybe they wouldn't enjoy having their work used in that way. And if some did that to you... maybe you wouldn't like it.
I wasn't gonna swipe the pic, but it fit the bands 100% perfectly. I agree that on the larger picture, it's a cheap to take content - but this is rock 'n roll, not commerce. That's how I'll justify it to myself.
I think it's kind of lame to take the work of a contemporary well-known artist and slap some text/photoshop filter over their image.
I know this conversation has happened a million times here... it's still dumb though.
