  1. Man oh man is this an iconic cover. Had a muscle shirt of it I wore with my white parachute pants and so many people would ask me what it meant or what it stood for that I ran out of made up stories about sonar, earthquakes and EKGs.

    I've enjoyed some of the parodies and tributes that followed in its wake all of which I'm drawing a total blank on right now.

    If I were to hang it on my wall and someday I just might, I'd hang it upside down or facing the right to see if any of my esteemed friends and colleagues notice.
