We all know the music makes the band, but hey, having a killer logo never hurt either. Seems like one of the most common denominators among successful bands is the almighty use of branding. So we decided to highlight nine San Diego artists that have upped their logo game big time.

The Bassics: It’s hard to go wrong with classic mod-rock signage, but these San Diego Music Award-winning boys done got it so, so right. Visit them online at http://www.facebook.com/thebassicsonline

Earthless: These experimental psych-rock/jam band juggernauts got a logo that does their music justice: It’s wavy, it’s psychedelic, and it's kinda ominous. Just like their music. Visit them at http://www.facebook.com/earthlessrips/

Eukaryst: While the band chugs along as a local death metal institution, their logo is delightfully bright, fun and full of life. Yeah, right. It looks more like it's taken a cue from a pile of razor blades. If logos were living, breathing creatures, this one would eat your soul. See more at http://www.facebook.com/eukaryst/

Glass Spells: This dance-punk band switches their logo up every once in a while, but this iteration is standing the test of time. It’s interesting, a little wild, but also pretty smooth -- kinda like their tunes. Check 'em out at http://www.facebook.com/GlassSpells/

Low Volts: Tim Lowman, aka Low Volts, is arguably a master at branding. He’s made an art out of designing merch that generally follows his worn lightning bolt/stars and stripes symbolism. Hell, you’ve undoubtedly seen his artwork slapped on any given urinal around town. Dare you to peel those stickers off... Like him at http://www.facebook.com/lowvolts/

Odessa Kane: When you combine a harsh, raw edge with an unmistakable flow, you get an artist that sounds like Odessa Kane -- and a logo to match. Check out his music at http://www.facebook.com/Odessa-Kane-256058791119779

Oh, Spirit: When your band’s music recalls late-period Beatles, Beach Boys and Wilco, then why not have a bubbly, psychedelic-flavored logo to boot? Makes all the sense in the world. Become a fan at http://www.facebook.com/Ohspirit/

The Palace Ballroom: Their logo -- designed with equal parts vintage typeface and elements of script -- looks as eerily elegant as the band’s smoldering indie rock sounds. Basically, it fits 'em to a T. Listen in at http://www.facebook.com/ThePalaceBallroomMusic/

Shady Francos: When your insane garage-rock energy is through the roof, a neon-colored cartoonish logo does the trick. Simple but effective. Fan out at http://www.facebook.com/ShadyFrancos/
