Axl Rose, Red Hot Chili Peppers Among Music-Themed ‘Garbage Pail Kids’ Cards
Throughout your career, there are signs that you've made it -- platinum records, Grammy awards, sold out stadiums, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ... and being represented on a Garbage Pail Kids card?
That latter one is pretty specific, but Axl Rose and Red Hot Chili Peppers can count themselves among those represented in the new music-themed Garbage Pail Kids card series. Topps have parodied the musicians, along with Beck, Death Cab for Cutie, The Roots, Radiohead, Bob Weir, Morrissey, Arcade Fire and the Cure.
As you can see below, Rose's cards spotlight the singer's dual roll on the road this summer, fronting both Guns N' Roses and AC/DC. With the titles "Overworked Axl" and "Gunnin' for Rose," the musician appears to be pawed at by members of both bands. Meanwhile, the Red Hot Chili Peppers card finds the band members with strategically placed chili peppers showing plenty of skin while the titles on the cards are for "Fiery Flea" and "Affable Anthony."
