Someone, please erase this font!

What ever happened to the good old fashioned handcrafted artwork and logos? There was a time when people actually used a pen to create logos to bands such us Kiss, Iron Maiden, Poison, Anthrax and Def Leppard. And those logos are cool, classy and trademarks of the artists. Nowadays? Download a font from the internet and you're set to go.... Isn't that boring?









But watch your steps because you are not alone out there. Internet is full of amazing free fonts for anyone to download. The bands picks a font that looks cool, suits their bandname or the title of the album. But if you are unlucky, just like these bands featured today, you'll pick a font that a lot of others uses too. Tough luck...









Imaging 20 other bands using the Iron Maiden-font on their CDs. It would be rather dull, wouldn't it? And I doubt that Tim Donahue will call Star Queen and claim that they trespassed into his logo-font-area. The question still remains - who was the first band/artist to use this bloody font? You tell me...









Note - no offense to any of the featured bands, their music or record companies. We just happen to be fed up with this constantly recurring font. Nothing more, nothing less.
