Defining images

Post by Furburt on Wed Jan 05, 2011 12:37 am

Most trends, fads, movements, uprisings and everything else these days has one image that defines it, the image that can pop into your head when it's mentioned. The Vietnam war has the infamous execution photo, Bloody Sunday has the famous image of the priest rushing the wounded to safety, and I present you, THIS



I am convinced that this photograph of the band Sleep literally sums up everything about the Stoner metal subgenre. You can show this to nearly anyone, and they'll go "Oh, so it's that kind of music". I'd explain it, but really, I don't think I can.

So, anyone got anything else? I realize my example's a bit silly, so humourous or non-humourous responses both welcome.

For me, this perfectly sums up how tongue-in-cheek the vast majority of metal is, and how often people miss that quality about it.


No further explanation is needed, other than that's Bruce Dickinson and Rowan Atkinson.

Oka, Ontario, 1990. Mohawk Tribe engages in standoff with Canadian Government over land dispute. Army Troops meet Mohawk Warriors.

Captures the feeling of the whole incident in one picture, with both sides refusing to back down.

Is that what Mohawk warriors look like these days? Fucking awesome, man. I'd fight for them.

That image reminds me of the famous image of the British miners strike in '84.



That image just screams "Come on, ya cunt"

I didn't realise the natives had access to military equipment.

Most of the weapons were probably bought in the states. Stuff like uniforms you can buy at an army surplus store.

Interestingly, the guy on the left got kicked out of the army for drunk driving and cocaine use, and the badass motherfucker on the right was an economics student.

Seriously, best CV ever:

Economist/Mohawk Warrior

Skills: Macro-economic theory, scalping.

He was also in a soft-core porno after he got kicked out.

Best. Soldier. Ever.
