Derby #33: Lyrics Illustrated

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

Most of us have some favorite lyrical snippet that we've slapped all over our high school yearbooks and MySpace pages. Now it's time to slap it on your chest, in graphic form. Illustrate a choice line, or verse, or more. You should be reasonably certain that more than ten people will have heard the song. Claiming that your little brother's band does a song about Calvinball isn't going to fool the moderators.

The title of your entry should be "Inspired By (Insert Song Title)". This will make it easier on voters and moderators. It's ugly, but if your shirt wins, we're going to have to change the title before we sell it anyway. Also, make sure you tell us in the entry discussion thread specifically what lyrics you're talking about.

No text this week. Putting actual lyrics on your shirt is stealing somebody else's work. Illustrating those lyrics is being "inspired by" someone else's work. See how that works?
