“The metal sign, or ‘sign of the goat,’ has all but lost its impact as a token of respectful recognition for something truly ‘rocking’ or ‘metal,'” SMC president Terence “Geezer” Butler said.

I read this article and it inspired me to make this painting… I love the idea that a hand gesture can be abused… awesome!
