We're in the process of decorating upstairs at the moment and it brought back memories of my bedroom wall as a teen which was pretty much covered floor to ceiling. I used to cut out pics from Kerrang! of my fave artists just to make sure every available inch of space was used.
My absolute fave posters were a big black and white picture of Kurt Cobain who I thought was gorgeous (although sadly deceased by the time I was interested in Nirvana) and a poster of South Park which was huge in the late 90s. Who was on your wall as a teen?

I had a Green Day one - their 'Dookie' album cover.

My favourite was a System of a Down one where it was an illustration of the band riding an elephant, and they were surrounded by the kombucha mushroom people.

I had Captain Jack from Pirates of the Caribbean and Aragon from LOTR. Then later on it was mostly Harry Potter and Doctor Who ones.

The beatles I was born 85 so a teen in the late 90s I was bullied so badly for being vegan, a beatles fan and handing out leaflets on anti vivisection. I think I was pretty cool.

Depeche Mode, Korn, and Nine Inch Nails.

David, Jon, and Trent. <happy sigh>

Plus a bunch of arty-farty ones with things like black roses and sad vampires grin

Glad to see people loved their posters as much as me. I used to get a great deal of satisfaction from changing them around and getting new ones esp if I went somewhere cool like Camden and could get new ones different to those available in my town.
I remember that system of a down poster and had a hoody of the dookie album cover. smile
