33. FUCT "Destroyer"
Inspired By: Kiss' Destroyer cover (1976)
The cover of Kiss's 'Destroyer' by Ken Kelly was far more than some vanity shoot—that painting fired a whole generation's imaginations and encapsulated an era of rock excess. It was perfect fodder for Erik Brunetti to fuck with too, and just as Fuct never half-stepped when it came to visuals, the painstaking nature of the brand's manipulations resulted in the Kiss 'Kids' imagery as well as the Fuct 'Destroyer' shirt and the sought-after pieces with the tiny embroidery of Gene's manic, painted face. Messing with the Stones and Kiss rock and roll corporations and their trigger fingers with a lawsuit proved that Fuct liked playing with fire.
