The Grateful Dead's self-titled 1971 album is sometimes called"Skull and Roses" by Deadheads, due to the iconography seen on the cover art. The Dead's love of the skeleton isn't skull-only though, as the group has featured a skeleton in various costumes on several of their albums, most notably the Uncle Sam Skeleton designed by Gary Gutierrez for 1977's The Grateful Dead Movie.
By 1976, the skull had become an iconic symbol for the band. The red, white, and blue skull with a lightning bolt shot first appeared on the cover of 1976's Steal Your Face cover, but eventually became the band's logo: adorning the Grateful Dead's equipment at every stop on the tour.
