Although one should not do drugs due to the health hazards, the Stones made singing, dancing, and playing instruments look ridiculously easy while they were looped out of their minds on drugs. Trademarks such as the Rolling Stones’ tongue and lip logo, which was designed in the image of Mick Jaggers’ mouth and lips by John Pasche in 1970, have set them apart from other bands.

Despite her large-scale popularity in an era in which MTV defined pop culture, Ellerine Diengdoh, professor of English Language and Literature, argues that Chapman “recreated the image of an artist isolated from the sexual imagery associated with music video entertainers popular in that era” (182). Chapman tried to stay true to herself and showed that having success in the music industry was not her goal. Her album addressed problems such as inequality, poverty, and domestic violence. The first song on the album, “Talkin’ Bout A Revolution,” denounces the United States as a nation of inequality and racism, and Chapman looks ahead to a time when “poor people gonna rise up and get their share.” In “Mountains O’ Things,” Chapman again refers to the existing inequality by attacking consumerism and discussing the harmful consequences of
