The 'Reversed Music Icons Fandom Project' Pays Tribute to the Influenced

Designer Billy Butcher imagines what it would be like if iconic music influencers paid tribute to the acts they influenced in the aptly named Reversed Music Icons Fandom Project. Butcher's project is awesome due to its simplicity. The icons in this series, including John Lennon and Freddie Mercury, wear band t-shirts paying tribute to everyone from Miley Cyrus to the XX.

All of the photos in Reversed Music Icons Fandom Project have an Instagram-y look to them, which, in an ironic twist, makes them seem more modern. The best part of Butcher's work is browsing through each photo and wondering what each musician/band would think of the bands and singers who came after them and claimed to be inspired by their work.
