Metallicas is the best, on the albums load and re-load it was changed, but then it was changed back to the old classic logo, METALLICA RULES!

In terms of creativity, this logo certainly is up there. A lot of efforts was definitely put into it and not a lot of bands put in that same effort.
Freddie Mercury based it on the star signs of the members of the band. There are two lions for the two Leos. A crab for the Cancer and two fairies/pixies for the Virgo! And of course the Q in the middle for queen. It's brilliant!
This logo looks incredibly grand, and has quite a lot of detail put into it. Especially since the Q is like a coat of arms.
Made by Freddie Mercury, who was very talented not just in singing and songwriting, but in drawing, too.
