Best local band logo?

Not a competition, mind you, jes wondering. I'm such an old-timer I'm inclined to say Cheap Trick, which was a local band back in the day, but I don't get around much anymore. Any candidates?

Isn't the Cheap Trick logo just "Cheap Trick" written over and over again?

Yes, but in a grubby typewriter-style font.
Therein lies the genius. Apparently.

Yeah, but it just plain looks cool. And it's instantly recognizable.

I still have one of those big-ass-almost-LP-sized NR stickers somewhere.

I think of the high school kids that are more into the idea of being in a band, when I think of complicated band logos.

The acronym is a classic.

I bet some of us even have a band logo tat? Fess up, forons.
