While I think this is a pretty trivial point to argue over... Aren't most of the discussions in the comments section of this site? I mean, when it comes down to it, everything is open to so much interpretation and perspective.
I was probably a bit harsh on Dan in my comments, but I just got rubbed a bit raw by something he posted here. Happens all the time, and I don't think it's necessarily the result of the discussion on art or advertising, but more on personalities. That stuff, you can take it or leave it, as is evidenced by every poster with more than a couple dozen comments on this site.
This one just hit close to home for me. I don't think the Jawbreaker t-shirt design is "obscure" to maybe 75% of the people who would be into this band. The kids who are paying their $10 or whatever to see PGMG are the same kids paying $30 for one of these t-shirts on ebay. It's in the same realm, and hence, I made my comparison from my own personal perspective. I mean, you don't put an image of Eddy on a Slayer poster.
So yeah... in the end, it's a completely worthless argument. It's not the end of the world. It's a fucking rock poster. Maybe some people won't see it the same way, but chances are, a lot of people will.
