Metal Band Logos refers to the logos of heavy metal or death metal band names that are often pointy, jagged and illegible. Physical things like scratched chairs, cracks or deer antlers often resemble these logos and have become a cliché to reference in memes starting in 2013 about the stereotypical metal band's logo artwork.


On March 30th, 2013, an image was created for the website[1] that captioned a pile of sticks that made a shelter as, "LOGO / For my new black metal band" (shown below). This is the first known meme that brought the idea to internet humor.



On July 9th, 2016, Redditor MintSM posted an image of a bench press cushion with a scratched and cracked surface to /r/funny,[2] captioning it, "Does anyone know what heavy metal band this is?" Over the course of six years, the post received roughly 28,500 upvotes (shown below).

On October 24th, 2017, the Facebook[3] page Millions of Dead Posers posted a meme that captioned an image of a multi-antlered deer with, "discarded metal logos harm the environment…" earning roughly 3,800 reactions over the course of five years (shown below). The meme was originally created on October 24th by Facebook[4] user Trevor Allen.

On January 10th, 2018, Twitter[5] user LorenzoSenni captioned a photo of worn-down seat cushions with, "black metal band logo generator," earning roughly 2,700 likes over the course of four years (shown below, left). On May 28th, 2019, Twitter[6] user brunoleoribeiro compared metal band logos to tangerines, earning over 710 likes in three years (shown below, right). Brunoleoribeiro's tweet was made into a different image macro two days later on Imgur.[7]
