I don't think it really matters. Just because we think skulls/flames/birds/octopussies etc are overused doesn't mean t he general public does. We're exposed to 90% of the opsters being made whereas your local concert goer maybe sees 1% or less of posters being made. They don't know if something is overused or not so if it's approriate - go for it.
I think this looks just swell. I've just been seeing him on the randomizer a lot lately,
