for the record, the photos are just automated with the tags that get entered into the system. So whenever a band name is mentioned, it gets tagged in the database, and it generates a photo for one of the entered tags.

ha! porkyboi covering the Beatles with his gapin fvckin buddies???

sound's like a serious hack job

why the fvck would anyone except a 'trade cover artist' do the Beatles??

its just so fvcking pretentious, audacious, and down right arrogant to think that you have ANYTHING to 'contribute' that would improve that music

them dudes did it right the first time...don't fvck with their sh!t

helter skelter was always a sh** tune anyway, so it don't count....though the original film of that title was pretty fvcking trippy

anyway, like i said before...this fvckin porker dork is a straight up self indulgent a$$ flapper
