With music, it’s all about impact. It’s about how a band/singer/composer affects you on a personal level, leading to new perspectives and changing you as a person. It’s about how, in the worst of times, music can make the complications of life feel less insane, and how, in the best of times, it makes you wonder why you ever wanted to plot destruction on everything; especially during ages 16-24. These vital years determine who will proudly serve as a young’uns go-to musical crutch for the rest of their lives. In any variation of rock, particular bands merely possess a ridiculous amount of fans while others have fans whose dedication borders on obsession. The following are some of those responsible for taking music fandom to a realm that far surpasses normality:

Led Zeppelin, Grateful Dead, Black Sabbath, The Doors, Rush, Phish, Kiss, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Queen, Nirvana and, of course, the band responsible for decorating dorm room walls everywhere: English prog rockers, Pink Floyd.

Artist Brandon Ortwein, applies his own artistic take on Pink Floyd’s classic 1973 album, Dark Side of the Moon, with this art print for mini-sized people. The familiar prism on the famous Floyd album cover is replaced with white chalk, and the colored strands of light move aside for a set of colorful crayons; two elemental components of a child’s life that will instantly spark recognition when you hang it over their beds, even if they don’t know who Roger Waters is. If you’re fans of the Floyd, they’ll eventually (at least before kindergarten) be taught that Syd Barrett is the ruler of everything and that The Wall is the progressive rockers bible.
