    It certainly feels that way. But I'm distrustful of that feeling and am curious about evidence.
    Some people think he's playing chess when actually his aides are trying to stop him from eating the pieces.

    More iconic than the Smiths!

    Never heard of the song "White Lines". Can't be that iconic!

    It's super-iconic. Almost as much as The Message (which is ultra-super-iconic & should have been the pick here).

    Just watched it on Youtube. Never heard it before.

    The Message 100% is iconic. I have to admit, I don't remember White Lines being all that.

    White Lines was huge where I grew up, in Brooklyn NY. The Message wasn’t nearly as big a crossover hit like White Lines was.

    I agree the Message is more iconic.

    Was reading too fast. Thought it said "toasted" not "posted". Big difference.
