Is it just me, or is that symbol the biggest fucking rip off of the Lightning Rod art work in the splinter booklet.

P.S: I hope that green day symbol wasn't made before the splinter booklet, or else I have just made a dickhead of myself, :p

The guy in the Green Day picture is getting hit by lightning. The guy in the Splinter book is sorta 'howling' at the moon. One is cartoon-style. The other is a photo.

You just got your ass kicked. That lightning guy has been around for Green Day since Warning. Which was out before Splinter.
And they are completely unrelated.

in the booklet of splinter there is a small draw somewhere of as little guy getting hit by lightning,they actually made a shirt of that draw, that looks simillar as the one of green day but they are not related. there is not a thousand draw you can make of a guy getting hit by lightning.

It does not matter at all.

The man getting "zapped" by lightning is a traditional little warning, sort of as a, "Watch Out! This could shock you!" It's on thousands of things.

It's just an effect...saying that means that a lot of artists have ripped off of that intro, and Offspring have ripped off a lot of artists. O.o

Why does it matter, that symbol has been with the band since they released Warning, in my opinion, Offspring ripped off Green Day, which we know they didnt, but maybe..oh well. Lets stop the Offfspring VS Green Day threads, cause any thread with the words Green Day in it always turns into a never ending battle of...OFFSPRING PWNS GREEN DAY!!!!!11111!!!!!1!

That Green Day logo came out on the cover for their album Warning in 2000, 3 years before Splinter came out

*edit, it's been said

That was made in 2000. But the intro to Boulevard of Broken Dreams is similar to Lightning Rod.
