Logo #207: Running Wild
German metal band Running Wild had their mascot Captain Adrian designed by band founder and singer Rolf "Rock'N'Rolf" Kasparek in 1983. They've cornered the "pirate heavy metal" market and there was a point in time at which a battle between Running Wild and Adam And The Ants to amass the most plunder was not entirely beyond belief. Conversely, we now know that the human appendix actually has a purpose. They celebrate almost a quarter-century as a band this year. Don't act so shocked.
