#8. Onyx
This hostile hip-hop takeover of the traditional happy face is pure genius. Not only does it capture Onyx’s musical aggression in all its cartoon-ish glory, it conveniently approximates the quartet’s crazy baldhead look (leading one to wonder which came first – the insignia or the image). It also proved versatile enough to be a grimy replacement for a heart in the group’s 1995 “I (Onyx screwface) NY” promo sticker campaign. Word up, raise it up.
