Jason's rating:
People who added this item 12 Average listal rating (7 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 0
Stranger Than Fiction - Bad Religion
Bad Religion adopted a standard font for their name early on, choosing Friz Quadrata. The font apparently goes well with punk rock as both Black Flag and The Offspring have also used the typeface.

Showbiz - Muse
The British band Muse uses Frutiger, a font created in 1975, in their band logo.
