Default Icons

Who are the people who transcend their genres?
The one's that despite how much you may not like what they do, you still know who they are?


For example:
Dale Earnhardt....even tho I don't like NASCAR, I still knew who he was

John Wayne... even if you don't like westerns you know who this man is

JFK.....even if you don't know all the Presidents, you know who JFK was and what happened to him

Also, do you think these "Icons" image gives a positive or negative reflection on what they do/did?

Though I'm into Nascar now, I wasn't in grade school. I knew who Dale Earnhardt was. I think he has a positive influence.

John Wayne. Westerns are unbelievably boring to me. I still knew his name and his face.

Wayne Gretzky- Lol, surprised no one has said him yet. Even Americans who have never watched hockey before know his name.

Bruce Lee- The reason Kung Fu movies are popular in America.

Cassius Clay- Boxing Icon.

The Simpsons TV Show- Paved the way for controversial cartoons like South Park and King of the Hill.

Rockstar- Makers of Grand Theft Auto 3, the game that stretched the boundaries of video games.

Run DMC- Biggest rap group of the 80s, their song with Aerosmith made rap a pretty big thing.

Bill Clinton- Best president in a long time, in my opinion. A very positive thinker, always wanted to expand in technology, and wanted to be a bridge maker into other countries.

...oops..

The Rock. Just about everyone I've talked to knows about him, even if they're not into wrestling.

Alot of people, who aren't into Nascar, also know Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt JR.

Rockstar isn't an icon, GTA is.

Exo: he clearly transcends conventional message boards and is a true household name. Even my grandmother knows who he is. Just look at all the exo tribute sites out there. If anyone has defined what it means to be a poster/mod/supermod/admin/artist/musician/superbeing, then it is him.

And Alli appreciates it. Alli just misses his old friend exo "sniff" and wishes he would visit more often and disperse many benevolant blessings upon the masses.
