    So, "most iconic" now means "funny'. Carry on.

    Van Halen is actually tricky in terms of "most iconic." I think maybe the photo on the back of Women And Children First is the closest. Kind of sums up their vibe, along with EVH and one of his striped guitars front and center.

    For iconic photos a lot of these are new to me and I don't think I've been living in a box for the last few decades.

    Not sure about "most iconic", but this is my favourite Keef pic.

    People with long careers are tough. For example, try choosing one single most iconic image of James Brown, Michael Jackson, Madonna, etc.

    Marc Bolan on the cover of Electric Warrior by T. Rex

    I couldn't find an image that I could use, so if anybody wants to post it that be cool.

    That's the best of anybody there is. I have the poster of this. A giant one.
    I'd like to make it my avatar sometimes, but I don't think they'd allow it here...

    I love Howlin' Wolf but I think the most iconic image of him would be the photo on the cover of Real Folk Blues,
    where he's holding/smoking a pipe but it's cropped out of the album cover photo...

    "Iconic" must be some slang term for "I can not for the life of me make out who in the world this is".

    The great Jackson C. Frank. I think it's no wonder this image is (to my knowledge) more associated with him then the original cover of his album
    Cropped out is the cigarette he was smoking that was shown in a photo I can't find out this. More iconic without the cigarette, actually.

    Some (though not all by any means) of the ones I've seen on here are not iconic images of the artists at all. Very strange.

    Not surprising, "most iconic" quickly becomes "my favorite even if it's obscure."

    If you search Janis Joplin tattoo, probably 80% of the results would be this photo lol. Also Donna from That 70s show had an enormous poster with that picture on her door.
