No disrespect to country, alternative music or even metal, but let's face it -- most of the best band logos in music history come from the world of classic rock.

On the following pages, we take a look at the fonts, images and colors that proudly represent some of the world's most enduring groups, and learn how they were created. You won't believe which devilish band employs a logo inspired by the Bible, or how little a store owner was paid for hastily creating the logo used by perhaps the biggest and most influential rock groups of all time.
