The Five Most Iconic Punk Rock Logos

RAMONES

One of the enduring traits of Punk Rock is the emotion and anger the music inspires. Punk Rock is not only music, but a way of seeing and living life, how it makes you feel. It has endured through many years, re-inventing itself, breaking off into multiple genres. Meanwhile, every new generation breeds new punk rockers, influencing fashion and design. So as expected, the logos of many Punk Rock bands and even venues have become iconic and recognizable as “punk” even to those who aren’t fans. So without further ado, here are the top five logos:

1. The Sex Pistols

2. The Misfits

3. The Ramones

4. Black Flag

5. CBGB

Agree? Disagree? I would love to hear what you consider the most recognizable and endurable punk rock logos.

Many people (me included) have inaccurately deduced that Bikini Kill’s fiery front-woman Kathleen Hanna is a lesbian. The reality is not true at all. In fact, she’s married to The Beastie Boys Ad Rock (Adam Horovitz), and has been involved with him since 1996

As Spin Magazine pointed out, Adam Horovitz is a member of a band that once had concerts with inflatable male genitalia and girls dancing in cages. Ah, the irony!

Former Pro Wrestler Lita Stars In JD & the FDCs’ Music Video

Lita, aka Amy Dumas, was one of the biggest female pro wrestling stars of all time in the WWE. She also had a uniquely punk rock persona in a wrestling world filled with bleached hair and bright sequins. What set Lita apart was that in an industry full of gimmicks, Lita was genuinely a punk rocker, who lived the music and the lifestyle.

Post-WWE, Lita hosts a radio show called PunkRockalypse and lives in Atlanta. She has recently appeared in a video for JD & the FDCs as a “corpse bride.” The video is cool, but I must say the title of the band is terrible and forgettable.

Lita is also rumored to be dating fellow punk rocker and straight-edge devotee CM Punk.
