10 Cool Vintage Sunset Strip Band Billboards

Classic Rock ‘N’ Roll used to rule the strip. And record company’s used to spend a lot of money on spectacular billboards.

1.

1977. This ELO billboard featured a custom-made Plexiglas and neon space station — based on designer John Kosh’s logo for the band — that cost $50,000 to produce.

2.

1981. The Knack’s second follow-up to “Get The Knack.” It was a failure.

3.

America’s Sweetheart in 1978.

4.

1978. WHO OUT THERE BESIDES ME REMEMBERS UFO?!? (*crickets*).

5.

1979. Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” billboard was cleverly teased.

6.

1969. Joe Cocker.

7.

1970. The Band.

8.

1977. If you’re as old as me, “I’m Not In Love” is in your head right now.

9.

1969. Headless Paul.
