If any of you saw this and immediately thought, “OMGZ! Bam Margera! Ahhh!!!111! one!!” you can take my blog off your reader because you are dead to me.
One of my all-time favorite bands is one called HIM. They are from Finland and have a style they like to call ‘love metal’; which the lead singer, Ville Valo, describes as “being fist-fucked with a velvet glove.” (He’s so eloquent…)
Anywho, this is the official symbol of the band. According to Wikipedia:
- “ The heartagram is the trademarked symbol of HIM, created by Ville Valo the day of his twentieth birthday. Valo has said that ‘the heartagram stands for HIM as a band, as an entity, and for 'love metal' in general.’ … Ville Valo has allowed his close friend, Jackass star, actor, and professional skateboarder, Bam Margera to share the license on the heartagram image and Margera has accordingly used it for his promotional purposes, including using it on his Adio shoes and Element skateboards. Because of the shared license, the symbol is often thought to belong solely to Margera.”
Being a libra, I love balance. Being a huge HIM fan, I love this symbol.
But being a purist, I effin’ hate the term ‘Bamagram’.
