JFK has already been used in the picture. Why have two of them?

Because the reverse side doesn't say "half dollar". The head side only shows a profile of JFK, the year the coin was made, "in god we trust" and "liberty" on it. Honestly, how often have you seen a JFK half dollar coin in you life time? People might not be able to make the connection especially since the coin hasn't been widely used or seen in over two decades or so, therefore a lot of people trying to do this might not recognize the coin. But if they show the side that blantanly says "half dollar" which everyone in the US, and most likely the majority of the internet world viewing the image knows a half dollar is $0.50...hence 50 cent.

Fine :roll: but I just don't really like making a connection between coin that reminds me of being patriotic, because of the eagle, with Fifty Cent, Fifty Cent make sme think of drugs and guns even though thats not true(right?) its weird to see so I didn't put those two together :?...and tthe half dollars I see are all JFK half dollars :D (about 85% of the time)

According to Eric, they're more like the B-52 planes.

I didn't mean to include the JFK part. How often do you see half dollars? unless you collect coins or work in a bank i'd guess pretty rarely.

The connection is, that is not meant to patriotic, the eagle isn't of real significance. It's meant to be seen as a coin, a 50 cent piece to be exact. As I mentioned the images are literal examples of the names of bands. For example look at the watermelon with dark sunglasses. You look at that and say "it's a watermelon with dark glasses. What is a band with watermelon or melon in it? Oh yeah blind melon. Oh I get it blind people commonly wear dark sunglasses...it's a blind melon". You don't look at it an go "look at that melon wearing sunglasses. ZZ Top had a big hit with the song Cheap Sunglasses, and those look pretty cheap...that watermelon wearing sunglasses must mean ZZ Top!"

Just remember, these are literal examples not correlative examples.

There are two planes, so the answer is meant to be plural, plus neither, Thomas Jefferson, George Jefferson, Weezie Jefferson, nor anyother recognizable Jefferson is near those planes. That that to the fact that those planes are specifically Boeing B-52 Stratofortress bombers pretty much leaves little doubt that they are meant to be an image for the band The B-52s. Since that is the only place that you seeing Jefferson Airplane, I'm going to remove it from the can't find list, since as of right now it is not in the picture.

lets also get some new finds coming guys...I'm sitting on a bunch but I'm waitng for everyone else to join. I'll keep updating the list as you post new finds, or prove me wrong on the can't finds or we settle on the debated ones.

Here is the wider version. It's smaller in resolution, but you only need it for the stuff on the far left side. There are atleast 4 extra bands in this new section

Isn't there a band called The Blur?
If so that's my guess for the blurry man next to Alice in Chains.
