Todd Slater has put the San Diego and LA Dead Weather posters up on his site. He says they are S/N, which is a bit weird because I have both and neither are S/N unless it's in blue on a blue background, but anyway that's not what I wanted to discuss.

Inside the Rock Poster Frame says,

The images are linked through the lyrics of a well known song not written or performed by the Dead Weather.

OK, so what is the song? And what's the relevance?

Robot hands made from gravestones and a snakeskin house. It's beyond me, need the detectives on this one.

Well done! Case closed.

That's cool. Maybe I'll have a go at "I got an ax handle face over a graveyard frame, I shoot tombstone bullets wearing balls and chains. I'm drinkin' TNT, I'm smoking dynamite, I hope some screwball starts a fight." (Which says it's by Willie Dixon, though I don't remember hearing it by him.)

Bo Diddley lyrics from "Who Do You Love"


Wow, I just got a whole lot more interested in this song. Obviously I've never paid enough attention to the lyrics before.

Damn, I just solved the puzzle and was all posed to post when I saw I'd been beaten to it--first time (actually solving a puzzle) that ever happened to me too. My favorite part of the song is "Hit a rock and somebody screamed, You shoulda heard just what I seen." :D

I've never heard of Bo Diddley, so I check out the song "Who do you love?" and man, it's some badass stuff.. Thanks for sharing.

I'm ashamed that I could not figure out what the pictures meant, as I am very into that song right now :(

sung by The Doors, though.... :D

"thombstone hand and a graveyard mind." love it
